What is it for buddy?

I believe that the Bridgestone RE71 was 140. An AWESOME street tire. Discontinued.

I think that their is a newer model that is almost identical to the origional RE71.... RE010 and RE040 or something. I think the new ones are a wear rating of 140.

Could be a large OTC Canadian contingent in 2003.

Falken Azenis or whatever they're called. These things are the cheater tire of choice among U.S. Solo 2 guys you want to use the street tire bonus.

The OE tires on Type R's are damn good too, Bridgestone RE010. Only come in very specific sizes though, but I think the NSX sizes might be just right for your car.

If I go to the OTC in 2003, I'll be running in U4 on race rubber. No street tires for me! :) But I'm thinking of saving my money and doing some regional road racing instead.
