New boot goofin’

RT660s are backordered Into oblivion so I’m going to try out the Nankang CR1. Have heard great things and should be a happy medium between the RT660 and the yoko AO52s

I should mention, I meant that in regards to their current availability right now lol They make good tires, just not the absolute top of the line. We sell more Nitto than any other brand.

I needed to follow up on this lol.

just got back from the tail of the dragon, I was driving the evo on NT555G2s. Was honestly surprised with that tire. Have been on that road many times in the evo on firehawks/conti ECS and honestly the nitto was pretty good. 
 

brooke was on neogens (Came on the car) and I still hate that tire. Absolute crap on damp asphalt.

One thing I realized from my drive on this road is the turns are pretty aggressively banked. For some reason I always had the misconception it was pretty flat. Properly dialed suspension and great tires definitely matter. My car came with achilles atr sport 2, so that's what I rocked on TOTD. Definitely wouldn't pick up another set lol.

On a side note, what a beautiful shot! Is that a long exposure or fog??

The banking by the “dip” (gravity cavity) is pretty wild. If you sit in a lawn chair on the high side of the corner in the pull off, you can’t see the road surface. 
 

took that with my phone lol, just pointed at it and clicked the button. The fog rolls in heavy there. That river pulls water off the bottom of Fontana dam (like 500’ deep) so it’s like 40-50° . Fogs up all the dang time
