They were pretty decent...about 8 yrs ago. LOL I've had this set on 2 or 3 Subarus at this point and they're fairly hammered. For now they just keep the rims off the ground. I knew a guy who runs a drift shop and this was one of the tires he could get lots of cheaply. For a budget tire, they're pretty good, but these are the older 595SS (I think they changed the model name). The 595RSR was far stickier, but was out of my budget at the time. I'm told the drift guys turn the rears around backwards for more slippage.how do you like those tires ? i have the same ones, i seen a few good reviews they seen like a good deal for a performance tire.
No worries! I had not read this, although my searching indicated it was hit/miss if people kept the OEM latch. Given your comments, I will look further into it, although for now I am a ways away from even driving the car. If I do leave the latch off, I'll at least look into some better bracing for the pins themselves, as that's probably the weakest point. I appreciate your comments and concern.Excellent progress - I like what you’ve done.
One question though, and I hope this doesn’t come across wrong... are you comfortable with running the Aerocatch pins without a hood latch? I considered them because the look is badass, but my research made me go a different direction. If I recall, they told me in pretty plain terms NOT to use it without a hood latch.
Haha I feel ya! Though I didn't stress about it much there since there were houses that would throw parties WAY into the night, super loud with people and music outside. For the handful times I started up the car in that neighborhood, they could deal with it. I've since moved and the car is now living in a castle on a hill with about 7 acres (friend's house).Nice neighborhood. I bet the neighbors are loving you.
I live in a 55+ neighborhood. They all drive luxury cars and small SUVs.
Im the guy they roll their eyes at and say, "We moved in here to get away from people like that."
