Might be going to Nationals (if it happens) in DS this year, and was wondering what the hot tire setup is for the Type R? I saw that Leeder won on Re71 last year. I'm assuming the 265/35R19 size?

Has anyone test fitted the Yokohama A052 in 255/40r20? The diameter is 27.9, vs the stock tire's 25.8, so dunno if it's too tall to fit.

Type R autox thread was TL;DR.

TIA.

I ran the A052's on a set of 19" Motegi's which are now up for sale. That said, I had a fresh set of RE71R's I was holding back for Nat's before I cancelled. The A052's were fast, especially right out the box, but I'm dubious whether they are as fast the Stones, and would certainly think that they'd be a really bad idea if you had a co-driver as they did not get faster with heat. Once the heat got into the carcass, there was no amount of spraying to bring it back. Another observation I'd give is that you really have to either jack up your rear sway bar adjustment or tire pressure or do funky things with your alignment as they will not let the car rotate much.
