Yoko Neova AD08....amazing!

I put my Advan Ad08s on today and im seriously in shock on how glued they are on the floor. If I took turns with my Toyo t1rs or Bridgestone 3's I would for sure lose control and be in the bushes. Check this out, I havent even gotten crazy with them as they are brand new (25 miles) but they EASILY outhandle/grip in a different world then what ive ever experienced before. The car is getting closer to how i want it too! Tomarrow my KW v3's will be installed and im expecting even better handeling now. once the tires wear a little.

Im suprised on how big of a difference tires make. I went with a 245 up front as my offset is very agressive and a 295 rear. I tested it out on my driveway and im seriously clearing front and rear fenders by maybe 3-4MM up front and 2MM in the rear.

IM SO HAPPY WITH THIS SETUP!

Nice...congrat! It should get better as mileage increases.

245/295...don't you get more understeer and heavy steering input? Maybe the tires are just that good.

Up us post.

Haha told ya! AD08's rock. Watch after you break them in. Now tire pressure and proper alignment specs are key!

245 & 295? That is double the difference in width between tires in comparison to stock... do you have any understeer issues? I read complaints from people with 255/295 setups, and that made me choose a 255/285 setup...
