I almost bought some but am going with the p-zero nero instead as those advans keep talking about quiet ride and long wearing so i'm worried they are geared more towards touring and I drive far too aggressively for that (I should get the direzzas or r-comps but I do a lot of road trips as well, my current federal rsr are a disappointment in grip and noise, I know I am stepping down in grip... or am I?)... also are listed as ultra high performance instead of max performance... hopefully I chose well, time will tell!

UHP summer will be more than enough for most people here but it just depends on what you're using them for.

They do make that tire in some other interesting sizes. Noticed that their 205/45/16 is an absolutely insane 17lbs!

Looking at these to pair with some Ultraleggera 15x7. 205/50R15 weigh in at 18lbs (-1lb from oem). the OZ Ultras are 12lbs (-10.5lbs from oem) making a 30lb combo. That's -11.5lbs unsprung!!:p 12.5lbs up front after ditching those 1lb weights on the struts. Already did a rear seat delete and the full spare will be outta there soon (~80lbs). So ~48lbs drop unsprung and losing some of that dead weight interior stuff should be very noticeable. Some math on the 205/50 at 23" OD vs oem RE050 summers at 23.4" will net only a +17mile error over 1000 actual. Also be nice to know I can go as low as I like without any clearance issues.:cool:

This article has me pretty damned motivated and excited! Especially neat is the part stating every pound of unsprung weight reduction is equivalent to 6~10 lbs of overall sprung in your typical street car. I calculate My FiST should feel 464lbs lighter:ROFLMAO:

Anyways, I'll apologize and shut up since this thread is about a certain tire, not putting the car on a diet:p

I just put on a set of 4 of those new Yokohama's. As kona16 said, the S-Drive is done. I had 2 5/32" S-Drives and when we went to order 2 more from Yokohama they told us they were discontinued and that the Fleva V701 was the replacement tire for it. I got them in the standard 205/45R17 size though as there is little benefit on the street to a wider tire and I have a track set of wheels with some dedicated track compound tires on them. I just had Discount Tire install them yesterday so no updates yet as to any differences compared to the S-Drives.

8.3 section and 6.9 tread on the 205/50/15. Going for a meaty tire look on some helium-filled 15x7s and likely some Swifts, turning my car into a roller skate. Might need to go lower with other springs tho.
