    Well, I must've ran over a construction zone....

    LF- 1 nail in sidewall
    RF - 2 in tread, 1 in sidewall
    RR - 1 in sidewall
    LR - clean

    lol

    so, the sidewall ones made it imposible to plug, and the tires were maybe 40% tread life anyway ( i was planning to replace them after winter) but it came a little early...

    picked up a set of Michelin Pilot PS2's...
    Michelin Pilot Sport PS2
    255/35/19 in the back
    225/40/19 in front.

    damn sticky tires. I like 'em a lot. LIGHT YEARS ahead of the S02's that were on the car, especially in the wet.


    they weren't cheap though.... Cost me over 1400 bucks out the door.

    Enjoy your 205/50's :D

    Welcome to the world of real car wheels =)

    Not only are they 19" they're also wide as fuck =)

    I think 1 of my Z tires is like 3 normal civic tires rubber/weight wise.

    Nice tires... hopefully the new tires have a warranty... that sux but as most of us look at it, when something goes bad its a great time to upgrade...

    tire warranties are a flat out waste of cash.
