Few months ago I asked our RotaryGarage crew what tyres they would suggest to my car. After thinking long and hard, I went for Nangangs. As they are cheap and quite good actually, so Iv heard. Some friends here use them alot, at track and streets.

I choose NS2R 230 compound. Friends told me that these ones have no traction at rain, but Im not planning to drive this car on rain. :) However, these should be quite good at launches ;)
Power is nothing without control. Weight is enemy of performance, handling and braking.
