yup, dito basta ikaw nasa kotse, sagot mo yung pedestrian. naiinis lang ako kasi konting lakad nalang (less than 1 minute) nasa underpass na siya eh. tsaka wala talagang tawiran dun. haaay, malas talaga.

nagdalawang isip ako kasi ipasok doon sa daan tapos pinasok ko pa rin kaya ayun hay ganun talaga experience. Dapata talaga I should have trusted my instinct na malamang alanganin na.

Nasagi lang naman yung puno. Yep yung nakaparada sa harap taga project 6 rin kayo?

Any recommendations for good tires? My AD07's are at the end of their life, it seems. My right rear tire contracted 4(!) holes. That tire has like 7 holes patched altogether. The AD08's in the market cost an arm and a leg and what's ironic is since getting the AD07's I haven't been to a trackday, rallycross or slalom event.

Does anyone have a table of prices and grip ratings for tires that are available? My size is 195/55/R15. I'm not sure what my budget will be but definitely not something that costs as much as the AD08.

Wow neovas, bigtime. :p I've been hearing about Nankang NSII's being the most back for buck tires for daily/track use. A lot of HCP track addicts are on NSIIs because of its attractive price at around 2.5k, IIRC. Yokohama s-drives and dunlop direzzas are both pegged at around 3.5k at evangelista. Good grip and quiet daw.

You could check price updates here: http://s3.zetaboards.com/HCP/topic/408058/36/

we have the same tire size.  my Toyo T1R set cost me 2.8k each at dkc a few months ago.  at par with most tires of with the same treadwear rating when it comes to dry grip. wet grip is excellent, the primary reason why i bought it.

there's postive talk about the federal 595 rs-r; cheap but very grippy, but at the cost of treadwear, of course.  iirc the treadwear rating is about the same as the AD07.

i think the federal 595 Evo is also a good alternative to the neovas.

Noobinator,

I don't have an account in HCP, unfortunately. Could you paste the prices here?

Anyone heard about Starfire? Supposedly, it's the tire of choice for the PTCC. They used to run AD07's for the cars there.

AFAIK the RS-R is already an intermediate tire while the 595 Evo is the street tire... which puts it up against the neovas since the neova is also a street tire.  the federal budget tire would be the regular 595.
