Look what I just got!

So I bought some Enkie rpm 2s from a guy for 150. All 4 were in pretty bad shape. Curb rash, fading, scuffs etc. I found this guy Jerry in my local area and he offered to refurbish them for 65 a piece. I was sceptical but went with it. Got them back last night and Wow! He did an amazing job. Definitely took the extra step to make them look pretty much brand new. If anybody in nor-cal or the sf bay are to be exact needs some wheel restoration pm me and I will give you his info. So for $410 I have a set of nice wheels. Now on to deciding what tires to get. Sorry for the crappy photo.

Re: Look what I just got!

How much are you looking to spend on tires?

Also what kind of performance do you want from them?

Re: Look what I just got!

I would say between 400-500. I don't need super stickey tires just because its a daily driver and I would burn through them easily. However, I do want some sport tires that stick during "spirited driving" So a compromise of sticky and comfort would be nice.

Re: Look what I just got!

I don't think I would ever buy anything other than Bfgoodrich gforce sports for a daily driver unless I felt like buying tires a little more often then I would get Bfgoodrich KDW2s.

Re: Look what I just got!

Yeah, BF makes awesome tires. I think I might go with the KWD2. I just realized that the offset on my wheels is 38 which according to the stickie posted with the list of recommendations it borderline with 17x7 and lowering your car. I am only lowering it 1.5 so hopefully it wont hit the outer lip.

Re: Look what I just got!

You will be fine just as long as you stick around a 205/45 or 40.

Going lower than +38 on a 7" wheel is a danger area.

Re: Look what I just got!

I've got a set of Kdw2s for sale that i bought for my car and never put on, they literally have under 125 miles on them..i only want 325 for all 4 which is a steal, the only problem is i'm in arkansas and it might be a bit pricey to ship. Lmk. The size is 205/50/17.




pic was taken with a phone that's why it's not the best.
I work at a warehouse and we ship stuff all the time. If you want i can get a quote (should be cheap with our discount) and let you know.

Re: Look what I just got!

Im on my 2nd set of Falkens. 1st set wore out prematurely because of a major alignment issue, but they were awesome tires. I went with the fk452s both times and I've yet to find a tire that compares with these. They are a good all around tire. Low road noise, super sticky in the corners and good wet traction.

Tires - FK452 - Falken Tire
