2005 Lotus Elise
I bought my 05 Elise in December, and it came with a new set of Advan Fleva V701 tires, 195/45/ZR16 front and 225/45/ZR17 rears. The previous owner used it for street only, and was looking for a quiet set of tires. When I bought the car, I put a set of Continental DWS06 all-season tires on to drive it back from FL to IN in December. I'm getting ready to mount the Advan Flevas on a spare set of stock wheels, and wanted to see if anyone has used them and has thoughts on how they behave on street or track? I'll be mostly street, but a few track days / year (I'm also brand new to HPDEs). My car is stock, with stock (non LSS) wheels and suspension (upgraded Inokinetic DSBrace toe link). I've thought a bit about upgrading to AO52s or R888Rs for track days, though the Continental DWS 06s or Advan Flevas will probably serve me well enough until I get more experience. I might try both the DWS 06's and Advan Fleva's on some track or autocross days before upgrading.
