Sup /o/, I had some Michelin PS4S' put on my ISF the other day. I'm pretty sure these were the best in my price range (300-400 a corner). Thoughts?

In the two days I've driven on wet and dry roads and they are fucking amazing.

This anon doesn't really have a good understanding of tires.

It's the same as buying a car - you don't go off the spec sheet, you go off of what the tires are actually like to drive on.

Michelin PS4S were designed PRECISELY for use as a daily driver tire for people with performance cars. The reason why people love the fuck out of the Pilot Super Sports (the PS4S predecessor) is because they make compromises in performance in treadwear, ride comfort, reduced noise, and inclimate (wet) weather performance.... but not so much sacrifice that you'd notice it much on the street.

PS4S tires are tires that you CAN take to the track and have some fun... for a little while. Once you start to really go at it for more than a few laps at a time, the PS4S start to get a little greasy and can't keep up just like the PSS that came before them.

Now are PS4S absolutely required for any performance car driven during the summer? Of course not, you can get something else that's either less expensive, or maybe it focuses more on driving feel and dry performance while sacrificing performance in wet conditions, and dealing with higher noise levels, etc.
>>
>>18065046
And they cost twice as much for like that extra 10%. Not worth it imho
>>
used a set of pilot sport exaltos and they were fantastic for autocross, track days, and summer driving, even when they were super worn and heat cycled a million times. looking to replace them, but i'm on a budget, would toyo proxes R1R or Falken RT615K be the better option for a tire that will take me to the track, drive there all day, and drive back?
>>
>>18065142
OP here, just got back from a mountain test. I've never been a tire performance guy but these made me smile so much, where my previous R003's would start to slide on my favourite turns, the PS4S stayed grippy and I pushed my car just a little harder than usual and was colon disentangle I wouldn't slip.

Considering I payed $80k for this car, $100 extra a corner is well worth it for the fun and security.
>>
>>18065142
What that anon means is that what is the best tire you can buy in that class of tire (the pss class not track or drag etc). What you mean is what is the best bang for your buck tire in that class(which ever class you are referring to). Usually it not the same answer. OP seems to want the best in the DD class so this fits the bill there are other competitors also but he can decide his categories of dry grip wet grip price etc himself.

>Race van
Some of the most fun I've had was barreling down city streets after the fireworks on the 5th of July. Had all 8 seats in the Safari full with the 5-0 on the phone. Was in a high speed pursuit (literally 100+ at times) after a Pontiac Aztek that ran people over and smashed into cars.

Shortly after parroting the license plate number to the dispatch I was told to slow down and resume driving normally. The pursuit lasted over 15 minutes and we had a blast.
>Smashed some dudes saw horses to begin the pursuit
>Buddy threw a beer can at the Aztek in an attempt to take out a window
>One mate lost his hat
>Literally just did a brake system overhaul the day before with new lines at all 4 corners, heavy duty towing pads, rotors, and aftermarket dust shields with 'cooling' fins

After we finished the pursuit we went back to where we started to find my mates hat. We were greeted by police officers and drunks that tried to get us to celebrate. The only thing we could smell after the pursuit were brakes.

hey op how do you balance your tires? I rotate mine and noticed a definite shaking at higher speeds that wasn't there before. I think it's the balance and/or alignment. Anyone know how to correct these issues myself?

This is the official /o/ Meet-Up thread for everyone around Chicago.

The meet-up is at Strat's, a diner in the west suburbs. Some of us have decent cars. Others have shitboxes. A select few have bikes. Show us what you got!

Plan to meet there on Saturday October 28th at 1 pm. Pic related says anywhere from 1-3 but that's only because some people are late about it and others are autistic.

A plan is in the works to go on a cruise on Lake Shore Drive, but I feel like it all depends on what everybody is feeling the day on the meet. There's a highly likely probability that it doesn't go down because single moms are marching downtown because they're not hot enough. We'll see what happens.

That's like $2500-2800, I was checking one similar out in 2016 at an auction w/ manual, but about 2x miles (and I knew it spent quite a few miles behind an RV).

However, the HVAC blend door didn't work and the radio button labels were wasted. It went for $2800 which was too high for me. But this appears to be in decent shape with less miles.

I still would be nervous to bid on anything unless I had a chance to inspect it in person.

Not surprised this was the problem, Once you do the vacuum sync for the idle you should be good. Sometimes it take time, but once the vacuum pulled is even across all cylinders you should be good.
As Rad dude said, make sure you don't let it get too hot. You can always stop, leave it, and come back.
Once this is done your idle problems will be solved.
Also cool bike, love me some 80's air cooled rides.

Anyone have any experience with these shitboxes?

CRXs and Civics are over priced but these are pretty cheap for fun commuters.

>Does this get enforced in your state?
Washington typically gets 8,000 or more of those citations issued every year. Last year (2016), it was over 16,000 tickets.

https://www.seattletimes.com/seattle-news/transportation/washington-state-patrol-plans-crackdown-on-left-lane-camping/

In a newspaper article, the patrol is aware there are self-appointed anti-speeders blocking left lanes. They also go after those people for aggravated left-lane driving since the law also says if there are 3 or more vehicles behind you that want to go faster, you are to go to the right lane to let them pass even if that right lane is slower than your current speed.
>>
>>18064204
Most people seem are pretty good about getting over when they're done passing here (central Illinois). Sometimes people take their sweet time doing so, as in going 0.5 mph faster than the car they're passing, but it seems like more and more people are starting to understand that the left lane is for passing.
>>
>>18064548
What time do you see these staties? I travel 80 east into 287 north to NY all the time and I rarely see police. I see them more on 80 west into PA but even then there are barely any. Hell, I have seen more local cops on highways than staties.
