    I think 195's are stock robo. Got 185's on the rear though aand running 185 semi's on the front which are sweeet.. But Ive read around that 185 is too small for the front.

    Now running brand new Maxxis MAV1's and they are dope! No delam as yet, and a pretty quiet road tyre as well. Have some RE040 and RE050 second handies I'll chuck on soon which should be sweet.

    dunno exactly i did it with a tape measure but toe should be around 0, shitloads of pos castor, prob bout 3 deg of neg camber. running 40psi to reduce flex but it didnt help much. wheels were 6.5s :/ turn 2 i would have to ease into the corner and wait for the tyres to lean over before kicking it. you can see in the photos how its riding on the sidewalls. stretched tyres will fix this partially but ill have to reduce the castor a bit. its fucking slow and unstable at high speed, you cant change directions quickly under grip its fucking homo. new changes for this upcoming prac season should fix this

    You've all heard it from me before..

    RE-01/RE-01R/RE-11

    Once you go those you'll never go back.. The ultimate tyre, sidewall that you can barely move. Unfortunately their close to impossible to get now because of our poor economy and rate to Japan.

    And worthy mention goes to RE88's. The ultimate fun tyre, stiff as rock, lasts a decade of sliding, and shit compound equals super long happy slides.

    GIII's are one of the worst tyres for high speed drifting, sidewall flex is insanely bad, so much that it starts chopping the thread on angles. Thank god their no longer in production.

    RE001 are awesome for the price, but performance wise, their nothing special, sidewall was mildly improved from the GIII, (still has the angled thread chop), compound however and grip, was increased quite a bit. Watchout for the Australian made ones, the casing line isn't made as nice as the Japanese made ones, therefore making it prone to early delamination.

    Take note however, my opinions of some of these tyres may not ring true as a fully braced AE86 would be putting a lot more force onto the tyres than a less stiff example.
