    Wait wait wait is B sporting Rotas? This will be the downfall of pissedoffsol. I remember someone on here I won't say any names (piss#$%%*sol) said that real men don't sport Rotas.

    yes. i got rota's. they are cheaper than a set of oem wheels. i'd rather ruin the rota's. lol

    exactly. no steelie will clear the brembo's.... so rota's are the next thing up the worthless wheel ladder :p


    ehh... i don't know about that. :p i just put 50 miles on the car to "break 'em in".

    they are sloppy as fuck. even in a 45 profile, they are mush.
    braking sucks. i need like 20-30 feet more distance from 60. the tires are a lot heavier, and thus have a lot more rotating mass. plus, the tread blocks are soft and flexible, so after you stop, and when the suspension re-loads, so do the tires. lol you move back an inch :p

    85-90 (yes, i was speeding ;p ) they are confidence inspiring though.... until you go into a wide sweaper. then it feels like you're in a conversion van. got lean?

    yeah, 04's were problem-ridden
    06's got hit like dog shit.
    05 is where it's at.

    If I had an S4, with at minimum some K04's I think I would be able to keep up with you in most courses.

    But I don't and would drag WAY behind, especially with my crappy tires I have on it now.

    lol- the car is dirty as shit :p


    well, we just got some snow... im heading in from the bar right now (and no, i didn't have anything to drink) and we got a nice dusting.

    braking is AWESOME! forward traction is awesome! turning still enduces some plow when you push it, but overall, i'm impressed with these tires.
