2nd', it will destroy highways and whatever light snow/compact snow that comes with it. They suck on powder, though you may fair better with an STI. I did it with my FWD turbos.

BTW, how much you get them for?

^ Don't quite remember the price but The Speed Syndicate sourced the tires for me. Less hastle in my opinion.

Picked up my exhaust yesterday for the STI and got it installed at The Speed Syndicate.

Oh, One other thing with the tires, They have NO wet traction, At all. You'll spin them/have traction control kick in just turning left...

Thanks for the heads up!

So far they're holding up pretty well actually, no complaints yet! I've driven to cypress and whistler with no issues so far and in and around the city in the rain zero issues. Could be the AWD or I just drive very slow... or the tires are still very new

Yeah i forgot you have an STi, I just have FWD and no traction control... Even with a LSD it's like driving with a pair of hockey skates on the car.

Haha, there's some difference but I wouldn't really say it's major. I used to have the AVIC-F90BT before upgrading to my AVIC-Z110BT and this. Interface layout is a bit of a change and the loading times aren't as brutal. Having outdated maps on the navi was bothering me so I decided to update my unit.

Not for a car but there's nothing else to do on a bike in the off season except buy stuff for it and wait for good weather.....

New Bridgestone Battlax S20 tires

Bought a bunch of LED's and some yellow fog light bulbs to rice out my daily. Also bought new Teflon window guides for my Miata that badly needed replacing. Handle would nearly snap off every time I'd try to crank it up or down lol

It's a Works bell QR where they did a limited collab with a D1GP driver

It's this one here;
WB Toshiki Yoshioka QR

Although I got a bit of a discount. Not quite sure I could justify the price otherwise.
