Oh yes. New shoes. The Coopers were bald. I mean like 1/32 or less bald, so anything new will obviously feel better. However at 79k I have been through my fair share of tires aaaaaand..... Amazing. That is my only word I can think of. I am sure PSS are better, but how much better can they be? $540 for all 4 I was skeptical but strapped for cash and on sale I dove in for them. 245/40/18 just like the Coops. Immediately I noticed how immediate, sharp, and direct the turn is was. Both high speed and low. It's so sharp that it actually feels like the truck like turning radius decreased. Traction is strong, but hard to say if it's the tires, or the fact I now have tires with tread. Road noise is about on par of the F1s, maybe a tad quieter. This doesn't bug me, but definitely louder than the Coops. As they break in, and temperatures warm, I will post an update.

Holy moly man. It's been since June of 2016 since you've posted to your build thread prior to your tires post (good choice by the way). Have you done anything else worth mentioning in the meantime?

By the way, are you still running that Forge piece listed in your previous post? If so, how do you like it? I currently have the Boomba adjustable BPV and like it quite a bit. Even when it's set to as wide open as possible it's still pretty tame.

Regards,

Brad

Lol yeah its been a while. Got out of the Navy so work has been crazy now as a chef. I acquired some MAXX coil overs from Rebel Devil, which I have yet to install along with some HID's and intake/manifold spacers. Really just been doing regular maintenance. I hit a truck tire about 8 months ago which shattered the bolts from the down pipe to the rest of the exhaust. Been running an open down pipe since then, and just managed to get it fixed. Its crazy how quiet the car is now. I do miss the spool noise though. Coils will go in when I have the time and money (within the next year). Still loving the Forge. It is a great piece, loud but not as loud as the Boomba, one of my favorite mods I have done that really shows off the cars character.

89k. Stock clutch e-30 tune and still in love. I can't believe Envy is going to be 5yrs old in August!!! Especially coming from a "trade every 6 months" kind of guy.
