Has anyone tried the Bridgestone RE-11 tires on their F yet? They are ranked #1 in the "Extreme Performance Summer" tire category. Expensive, but still cheaper than the Michelin PS/2s...

i'M RUNNING RE 11'S 245 ON FRONT AND 275'S ON REAR. NIGHT AND DAY!!!
Sorry for caps. They are like GLue! I autocross with them and they have been great!

Good Luck

I'm about to purchase the RE11s going up 20mm to 245/35/19 Front and 275/30/19 Rear on stock rims of my '08 F (everything stock - no mods).
Do I need to adjust the alignment, camber /toe angles, or anything else? Or would the stock setup be fine? I wasn't sure and thought I'd check to be safe. Also, I don't think any interference/rubbing should be a problem on the stock rims, is that right?

FYI..
I also auto-x and found that the RE050As and Hankook Ventus V12 K110's had sidewalls that were NOT stiff enough - front shoulders were corded or scrubbed off - results of hard cornering even with the fronts at 42psi. Curious to hear more details on how they're holding up in auto-x, including pressures you're running in the front and rear.

Appreciate your help.

Best,

All,

Thanks for all your help.
I just installed the RE11's on my stock rims. They look much BEEFIER, and much more square - both of which I'm sure will help in auto-x'ing...we'll see in a couple of weeks.

As for the alignment, the only stock adjustable things were the Toes (short of adding brackets or plates) so I got them back as close to stock specs as possible, thereby limiting one variable at a time to work on for auto-x'ing - tires - and of course driver skills. :)

Appreciate everyone's comments.
