Changing pads is super easy. I wouldn't be able to help until Monday. I'm going to Hallett this weekend for the BMW DE so I'm super busy trying to get everything ready.

I've never had them but I know a few people in the club that swear by the star specs.

Yeah those are sick tires but I think they may be to expensive for what Ryan is looking for. Kevin and another of my M3 buddies have these and love them.

For the money I still think the Nitto NT05 is a sick tire. That's what I run on the track and street and I've found them to have a ton of lateral grip but they don't last very long.

I think the RE-11's will be my next set though just because Kevin keeps trying to get me to try them. I'm putting on new NT05's tomorrow though on all 4 corners so I will have to run through those first.

Well after seeing that they are a 200 tread wear tire I wouldn't think very long. Depending on how you dive maybe 15k miles.

probably would be (more) noticeable if you had a really aggressive suspension/tire setup and were really pushing it on the track...

For you, it increases your dinian part quantity
