Sale: Extreme performance 245/45/18 tires
« on: April 01, 2014, 04:57:55 PM »
FYI, for people who want stock kappa size 245/45/18 tires in the highest performance category available (that are not R compound), Tire Rack has the Dunlop Direzza Z1 Star Spec tires on closeout at a very good price.

Wish I would have known this was coming a few weeks ago! Just put some Nitto Invos only car but have always wanted to run some Star Specs... The Invos were more than that with shipping included!

I've been running these Z1 star specs for a year now.. Absolutely my favorite tire yet. I never had a tire that didn't squeal when breaking traction before so that took a little getting used to :)

Yeah I had a hard time getting use to that on the Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires that I put on my car. It's nice though that it doesn't get you attention you don't want some, just feel the tail wag from time to time.

I remember the last time ep class tires went on closeout sale at a good price at TR. It was 2010 or so with the RE010's. It isn't very often and they didn't last long either.

TR now shows <10 available Dunlop Direzza Z1 Star Spec tires.

The closeout sale is dead and gone now. Just noting for historical perspective.

Saw this post just after buying some General G-MAX AS-03 from Tirerack.  They have the G-MAX and DZ101 on sale right now for $138 and $139 respectively.
