Bump. My 2006 Elise Sport I just bought came with the original AD48 which at 9k miles are gone in the rear (plus they are way too old).
So need new tires. The car obviously has LSS wheels and thus 195/50/16 tires in front. In a bind what to go with. Probably not AD48s. Apparently not a greatest tire out there, given the choices, though available in the stock size (obviously). Considering the Contis, but I am not all that much after wet traction, and worry about numbed steering response. I am somewhat apprehensive of upsizing the front to 205/45/16 if I were to go with RE-71R Looks like many folks are running that with no issues, but that opens the question what to run in the rear if I go with 205/45/16.
Arrrgh. Any suggestions? In particular will I make the car too tail happy with 205/45/16 in front, while keeping the rear stock with 225/45/17?
