Maybe I missed it but do you run a square setup?
yup, current DS/STU set up is on nc1 ys with 255/35/19 RE71Rs (which have about 100+ runs in 1.5 seasons).
will be changing to 18x9.5+45 TE37 sagas with 275/35 RE71Rs at some point this season.

Titan just came out with a reversed staggered setup just for our cars; 18x10.7 front and 18x9.5 rear

yeah i saw steven's spec but i prefer to rotate after every event to try and get 1.5 to 2 seasons on a set of tires.
i am very disciplined, no fun runs or co-drives :D

These are two very key points to keeping your car right, imo. First and foremost, the dedication of rotation significantly evens out wear which avoids having suddenly fresh fronts with rears that are less prime. While I would not ever expect more than a year of wear, it is mainly due to the fact that here in the midwest, competition tires just don't seem to winter over well in garages or even inside. On the second point, while I have had great experiences with co-drives, co-drivers are not always the most considerate to the equipment. While I consider myself relatively fast and get close to cones, I am extremely clean. Fun runs where something I stopped doing many years ago after adopting the mentality of getting it done in 3. After my Z3 STR car was retired and sold, my wife really pressed the issue of not doing co-drives as that car took a bit of a beating at the hands of non-owners.

Modding the new daily already. #bouford$$$
:wave:i am quite lucky to have accumulated a majority of the parts in late 2019 and the rest (exhaust and turbo blanket) prior to the current pandemic/quarantine.
