Advan RS Installation

Currently being installed at Bavarian Performance Group.

This set is Yokohama Advan Racing RS in Hyper Silver
PCD 5X120
Front 19X9 ET22
Rear 19X10 ET20

Tires are Michelin PS2 245/35R19, 265/35R19. I will most likely switch to a wider set of all seasons when I find out where I match for residency.

Pictures to follow soon.

Caps are on back order unfortunately

The wheels are very easy to balance and are not much heavier than the NEEZ. We did a three way swap today:

1. Swap a set of stock 245/35R19, 265/35R19 PS2 from my 220M to the new Advan RS

2. Swap the Blizzak LM25 255/35R19, 265/35R19 from my NEEZ to the 220M

3. Install 2 275/30R19 PS2 in the rear NEEZ, and 1 235/35R19 PS2 in the front (for the new owner)

Here are some pics:

I think that they mounted the tires with the wrong side facing out. What I can see is the inside pattern, when it should look more like this

Looks good. I've been considering the exact same setup. These wheels seem to offer solid performance at a very reasonable price. Did you get a chance to weigh these before the install?

I agree. From the pictures I can see the tires are mounted wrong. PS2's are unidirectional and you are running them backwards.

Was doing it in a hurry yesterday and didn't notice it. Will get it fixed come Monday.

Kev the wheels look good nevertheless, The Advan Rs's are one of my favorite wheels. I just didn't want you to have interesting corning issues with the PS2's!

Thanks~ I think we were in such a hurry to get it done yesterday that we were over our heads a little bit.

You can add 5mm spacers all around and won't rub. Looks nice. Are you getting wider tires later?

Probably getting wider All-Seasons later 255/275 when the Pilot Sport A/S Plus becomes available.

I love the Gun Metal color as well, but wanted to try something new this time after the Hyper Black NEEZ. I'll be getting a set of TE37 G2 in Formula Silver for summer too.

You mean PS2s are asymmetrical not unidirectional. PS2s are actually bidirectional and can be mounted to rotate to either direction. They are asymmetrical because only one side is intended to be mounted outwards. Big difference between the two tread design descriptions. Unidirectional would be something like the Toyo R888 and Bridgestone RE-01R.

And so that ends my short stint at tire police

So, what's the correct way of remounting them? I assume the inner portion is now facing out, so the tire needs to me dismounted and swap between the left and right wheels so that they'll be in the right configuration.

Or you could just invert the wheels on the axles that they are on now. I like keeping the wheels where they were originally. Like front right stays as front right till they are bald. Just easier to keep track of tire wear. I'm sure there are better ways, but maybe i'm just OCD with this. haha.
