      The NSX that Jeff Tyler mentioned has 235/17 front and 275/17 rear NT01's. They are waaaaaaaaayyyy better than R888's.

        You're seriously asking on THQ when we already talked about this and had drawn the same conclusion (275 NT01)???


        You're killing me Nils...


        What's next? Alignment, spring rate, turbo sizing, reccomended boost settings, etc...?


        FYI - Performance Friction is working on the "06" compound pads for the stock caliper. Sit tight. If you HAVE to get something now, go with the Carbotech XP10s for the time being.

          I had to buy a set of R888 for my NSX rear 235/40/17 rear on stock 17 x 8.5 rear wheels and 195/50/16 (!) On stock 16 x 7 front wheels. It was all that I coul get on short notice. This set up sucks.

          1992 Honda (Acura) NSX 5-MT - classic investment I couldn't resist and occasionally drive
          2004 Honda S2000 AP2 6-MT - my last track day car (FOR SALE or not, depending on how I feel when I fall out of bed tomorrow morning)

            Did you track it? -what track?

            As you said you were in a pinch, but trust me. Once you throw on 235/275 17/18" wheel combination (R-comp or street), you will be kicking yourself for not doing it earlier. It COMPLETELY transforms the car to modern supercar performance.

              I have been to LVMS Outside Road Course and Spring Mtn. for one day each with these tires, plus 2 round trips from L.A. to Nevada on the highway (including 95 mph runs on Hiways 127/178 from Baker to Pahrump). Running Big Willow this Wed. and by then they should probably be toast, I hope.
