Yokohama
The ADVAdvan Neova AD08AN Neova AD08 is Yokohama's tire developed for passionate sports car owners looking to get the most performance out of their vehicle. If you want to have fun at the track but don't want to carry a separate set of dedicated track tires, than these will definitely fit the bill. We tested this tire against other Extreme Performance Summer tires last May and the results were fantastic. I found the Yokohamas to have the best steering response and overall handling in both dry and wet conditions, while also providing reasonable ride quality. Compare this tire to other Extreme Performance Tires and check out our testing results to get a side-by-side comparison. You will find this tire in a myriad of sizes. See if the ADVAN Neova AD08 will fit your vehicle by searching by vehicle or custom sizes.

New OZ Wheel For Porsche 993, 996, 997

Friday, June 11, 2010 by Nick Shreve
OZ has just introduced a new wheel exclusive for Porsche 911 models. This new model is called the Turbo III which is a 3 piece wheel that we hand build using OZ Italy specified tools and procedures.


The pieces are built by OZ Italy. All 3 pieces, whether it be the wheel center, inner rim section, or the outer rim section, are produced in the same facility using the same machines and technology used to build their F1 race wheels. These wheels come in staggered wheel widths in 19" rim diameters with the proper offset to give your Porsche that aggressive sporty look everyone desires.

Match these with some max performance summer tires and you have yourself a very clean sharp looking car, that can handle everything the street can throw at you and also be a blast at the track. 

You can find these wheels in our upgrade garage when you enter in your specific Porsche model and year. 

We also provide you with the recommended tire sizes to use with these wheels and a link to show you the options we offer.

Being specific for Porsche these wheels are designed to use the factory Porsche titanium lug nuts and don't require centering rings for fitment. The OZ Turbo III also will work with your factory TPMS system.

We offer replacement TPMS sensors and when purchased as part of a wheel and tire package we will install the sensors and, as always, mount and balance your new wheel and tire package at no extra charge.

Friday, May 28, 2010 by Nick Shreve
The new Sumitomo HTR A/S P01 (H&V) tire was designed for year-round traction for sports cars, coupes, and sedans while providing excellent dry and wet road performance and wintertime traction. HTR A/S P01 stands for High Tech Radial, All-Season, Premium 1st Generation. If you are looking for a good, affordable, performance all-season tire this one definitely fits the bill. These tires come in a wide range of sizes and speed ratings ranging from H, V, and W and in many staggered sizes as well. 
Sumitomo HTR A/S P01
We just recently finished our Real World Road Ride tests and dry and wet track testing and I personally thought it had very reliable handling and a good, comfortable ride with very little noticeable tread noise. I felt the tires did a good job holding the road while also absorbing the bumps and rough road surfaces very well. I'm sure once we finalize all of our testing data this tire will prove to be a great choice and a very competitive tire among other performance all-season tires.
