That is why when he upgraded his tyres and rims, light weight 17" plus at that time top of the range Goodyear Asy2 was recommended for him. On this change I did tell him not to go too far down.....lol:biggrin:
Yala.. I know. But at that time I was desperate for tyres as my Assy2 was completely bald already and all I had was the water drains in the middle. Everything else was gone. And I had no budget at that time. Dammit.. if you ever see your friend at USJ Quicksave there, tell him his AU5 is rubbish + expensive and I'll never listen to him again. Dammit.

Performance only Izso....Its in your blood....Its in your DNA....Plus these tyres are really a bang for a buck....Nothing to lose....:driver::driver::driver::biggrin::biggrin::biggrin:
You can bring the racer out of the car, but not the car out of the racer eh? Unfortunately this is true. I find it extremely difficult to drive slow in my current car. Probably the cause for my bad FC.

6uest : Yeah a few have done it the way I mentioned minus the servo swap. They just live with the pedal drop. I can't. I need that feel from the pedal, not on-off. I've found a guy who can do all these things for me, now I'm just contemplating whether to do it or not. Cuz if I do I can forget about downsizing to 16". And if I forget about that then I can forget about comfort more or less. Cuz I can't really fit 50 profile now due to how low my rear gets when I carry passengers. And if I want to fix that I'd need to go coilovers (again) which I sold a few months back.

Damn Nissan, everything is connected to everything. Want 4-pot brakes? Change suspension first. Wtf.
Still can, go 205/50R17 and I think 215/50R17 can go in also.
Original tyre 195/65R17 to 215/45R17, smaller by 1.45% only
To 205/50R17 is 0.36% bigger almost same diameter
To 215/50R17 is 1.94% bigger, still within 3% ruling, will get more comfort but acceleration suffer a bit... :biggrin:

I am always afraid when you all go alone. My other friends same thing, I negotiate certain tyre but go there kena change others then complaint.....hhahhahaha :biggrin:
That was why when you change rims and tyres time, I prefer go with you.
I actually wanted you to test Rovelo Sports A1, seems quite a few using and some good feedback, but you wanted comfort so the boss ask you take the Nexen....:bawling:

I think 205/50/17 certainly can still clear but this size seems even more rare for UHP tires. This is the same size as std for the newer Sylphy.

The CSC5, PS3 and now V12E2 have this size. So better get that V12E2 coz way much cheaper. There in LYN got someone posted the Hankook price list and that size is only about rm350. If check with the shop where bro Marv3 bought maybe even cheaper.

My issue is still clearance. 215/45/17 right now is super duper low when I carry 2 passengers (low for the rear). My worry is any larger profile will scrape the rear arch.

I am always afraid when you all go alone. My other friends same thing, I negotiate certain tyre but go there kena change others then complaint.....hhahhahaha :biggrin:

Well, his 'comfort' recommendation is crap. It's no where near as comfortable as the Assy2. Should've just stuck with the tyre I went there for.

Unlike you, I don't print money :thefinger: Later change and the clearance isn't good I'll burn your car. Need to make sure everything is in order before contemplate.

Besides, my AU5 can't be worth much considering brand new it's selling for RM200 only pre-GST. Goddammit.

I thought low means the car low, higher profile will push the car up higher.
If scare hit fender got to see top space between fender and top of the tyres how many fingers.....:biggrin:
Next TT or DIT bring STD we check it out.....:driver:

...
Even though 205/50/17 is 0.5 cm taller than 215/45/17 but it's also 1 cm narrower tire so it might actually help clears the fender arch. Theoretically, even 215/45/17 should have enough clearance for Sylphy provided on std suspension and your rim offset is still enough. Maybe you can share us some photos how it sits now on the rear.

Sylphy aka Syphilis aka the STD.

It's their idea of a funny joke.

It's funny though.
