Crazy price did go down $1850 + ship at tire rack right now... Should have waited lol... Anyone know if tires got a lot cheaper in the last 12 months or did I just get ass raped? hehe

Keeping this thread on topic: The 09-11 and 12+ GTRs are pretty similar except for the LED bumper. From a powertrain perspective (computer aside) both still use the IHI RH55 turbos, the nozzle area is slightly larger on the 12+ hotside due mainly to cracking and not performance reasons, the tuning (boost) is a bit more aggressive resulting in an extra 60 or so horses. Not certain it's worth the premium to pay for a 12+, so I guess if you're looking for a used one keep that in mind - Good luck!
Prices on the pss's have come down but back on the way up again. My tire supplier was able to supply me my z06 sizes for 1400 (usually 1800) installed. He bought a truck load of them bc the prices were rising again
