RE71R - 285/30/18 is 24.8 and...

I have Borg's bushings and love them. Mostly autocross, some track and some street use. I can't use monoballs in STU class.

I didn't crash the car... I have known people that have crashed their DD at the track. Not a good situation.

I thought the same thing. Sold my autocross/track car, then sold my DD and bought a...

I missed the part where you said Pilot SS for tires. XP12/10 should work fine. I'd still recommend some brake ducts.

If you are changing fluid/bleeding brakes, why not just do the SS lines? ...

I ran the 275's on 10.5's this year. I think the sidewalls are so stiff there won't be that much bulge/balloon effect on a 9.5

Tirerack lists the diameters... 275 = 25.6, 285 = 24.8. That's a...

I've had these tires before, although not on my vette. It's a good tire for the dollar. I wouldn't doubt they are better than the run-flats. I've never liked any run-flat tire for that matter. ...
