has become more of a problem when i'm running
higher boost that I loose traction too easily!!

if i'm at the lights at try to launch the car will just spin, i've got
Pirelli P6000's on the rear 225/45 /17's with plenty of tread,
when I bought the car it had 235/45/17's on the rear and
225/45/17's on the front.

will putting 235's or even 245's help with traction?? in the wet
is another story!!

I have been through so many rear tyres its a crime.
In the interest of research to find the bestI have tried a different tyre brand each time and the one's that scared me most were P6000's. The best for me were Eagle F1 with Dunlop Sport 9000 a close second.
I am due another set now (why do they wear out so quick), dunno wether to go back to F1's or try Toyo the last on my list

aargh I had a sneaking feeling that might be the case, i'm gonna
go for 235's this time and see if that helps!!

I agree Pirelli P6000's are not good!!!! they tend to warp easy
especially in the central contact area of the tyre to ground......

I might be wrong but when I took them off that what I noticed......

aah well i'm gonna burn the Pirelli's out now for sure, and I mean burn them out:D , will film the footage !!:cool:

Try wider tyres if you`ve got wide enough wheels. I run 254 front & 255 rear &dont have any probs with traction at all except at the pod & the rears are re moulds!!! They were on the car when i bought it & i`ll replace them when they`re worn out.

I think my wheels can take 235's or 245's at a push, any wider and they might slip off:) , i'm a bit more happy in a way that I know my tyres are no good, atleast once I change 'em I should
get some decent traction!!
