OEM tire info

From Venza31:


To be absolutely positive that you have the correct tires, make sure the load rating and tire diameter are as close to OEM as possible. Here's the OEM specs:

205/55ZR16
Load Index 89 = 1279lbs (580kg) per tire
Speed Rating W = 168mph (270kph) 89W SL Treadwear: 140
Traction: A
Temperature: A140 A A
1279 lbs. 44 psi 10/32" 24 lbs. 5.5-7.5" 6.5" 8.1" 7.1" 25" diam 833 RPM

225/50ZR16
Load Index 92 = 1389lbs (630kg) per tire
Speed Rating W = 168mph (270kph) 92W SL Treadwear: 140
Traction: A
Temperature: A140 A A
1389 lbs. 44 psi 10/32" 26 lbs. 6-8" 7" 9.2" 8.5" 24.8" diam 840 RPM

There were a bunch of headers for all the columns that wouldn't line up from the table I copied, so I deleted them, but I think you can understand the ones necessary. I got the info from the Tirerack.com.

This pdf will make it easier to understand the specs for AP1's.

If you are going with tires other than OEM S02's, yes.

OEM Tires

I just recently purchased a 2006 S2000 with 12,500 miles on it. It has Bridgestones on it and my tire guy says I have at least 5000 to 7000 miles left on the rears. Does anyone know if the 2006s came with Bridgestones?

Yep...Bridgestone RE050s I think. The tire guy is right...you should get somewhere around 20,000 miles from those tires. They're very good tires, but I'd look elsewhere for replacements. The 050s are expensive!

Are you sure the rear tires are supposed to get 20k miles?? It is surely not the case with AP1's. AP1's are estimated at 8-12k miles on the rear and double for the front. It will also highly depend on driving style as well.

I have an 07 AP2, the owners manual says 10k miles for the bridgestones. That was true for my front tires, the backs I don't know a nail through the sidewall at 5k took care of that. You probably could get 20 if you were careful.

I just put new Kumo's on the front of my car and noticed a couple of days after they were on that the tires the dealer installed were not the same as I had on the back and only had an "H" speed rating. They gave me a argument about it, and said I would never need to go over 130 miles per hour. I told them if there was ever an accident caused by a tire failure no matter the speed and the car had the wrong tires on it they would get sued. They changed them for me. Was wrong to make an issue?

I replaced my Bridgestones with Kumo ASX 215 x 45 x 17 fronts & 245 x 40 x 17 rears. Same size, load rating and speed rating as the OEMs. Wear rating is much higher and price is a little over 1/2 the bridgestones. So far I like them. They ride better, are quiter, and on a skid pad hold slightly better (my personal test). I have also heard very good reports on the Dunlop dirizza (sp) tires.

I just bought a 2000 AP1 with 35K miles on it. Need to replace rear tires. I believe it still has the stock on it (i.e. potenzas). Hard to find non-OEM tires at 245/45/16? Have they discontinued this size? Is it crucial, or will reverting to the stock size 225/50/16 be sufficient?

Stock size for non-OEM is sufficient for basic driving, but not for aggressive driving. You'll have less rubber on the road and you'll be more tail-happy than the car already is. Do a size search on the Tire Rack.

225 front
245 or 255 or 265 rear depending on the wheel offset.

Looking to put new tires on my AP1. Tire Rack has a closeout on Bridgestone RE060AS Pole position. Anyone have a history with these?

Also considering RE-11 and Z1 Star Specs.

Personally I would go with the star specs. The RE-11s are better but more expenisive.

The Bridgestone RE060AS Pole position is an all-season tire. I think the best all season tire for our cars is the Continental ExtremeContact DWS.

For summer tires look at this test from Tire Rack.

Yeah based on that test im going with the advans. The RE-11s are just too expensive in my opinion. The Star Spec seem to be the best deal for sure though.

i don't know anything about the RE960AS.

i think jj swears by the RE-11.

there is a lot of forum support for the Star Specs. i think that roseanne runs these and she is (i heard) a hellava driver.

i have some yokohama AD08 right now--a great tire but pricey. when i next purchase a set of 4 i think i may try the Star Specs.

just make sure that you get some quality rubber---but you already know that. i like a tire that is a little stickier than the 960AS.

That's the problem, I've been spending hours researching Tire Rack. Everything has something going for it. My neighbor is a tire dealer and does installs for TR. They tell me they can match the price when you factor in shipping. He's not a fan of Dunlop, probably because he's a Bridgestone distributor. The RE060 is the one Tire Rack is closing out. I don't need all weather tires. Havn't driven the S in rain yet, but a little wet traction would be good. The RE11's would run about $160 more than the Star Specs. Maybe worth it, I don't know. I'm the type that does a lot of research on anything costing real money. The Continentals like good as well. I's kinda like being a kid in a candy store.


I know the Star Spec users are happy but I might just spring for the Stones. That's why I posted here, to get user feedback.

Based on the test results the RE11 are a little better than the StarSpecs in the wet and in the dry the StarSpecs are as good or better.

If I lived in SoCal again, I would get the StarSpecs. Unless you do a lot of driving in the mountains during the winter, I definately would not get all-season tires.

edit: the test also shows the Yokohama ADVAN Neova AD08 would also make a great Southern California tire, I'm not sure where if falls pricewise with the other two.

From what I have read the Advans seem to be the best handling tire in the dry. The RE-11s are better in the wet. The reason I went with the Advans is it doesnt rain much where I live and if it does its only for short periods. If you live somewhere it rains more then the RE-11s might be worth the extra money. They are almost as good in the dry and better in the wet. The best deal however is going to be the star specs. They are almost as good as both of the other tires but quite a bit cheaper.

The star specs also have a longer tread wear rating. You take these ratings with a grain of salt but its still something to think about.

In comparing those 3 tires, you're basically measuring with a micrometer before cutting with an axe. See my point?

They're all great tires, and they'll be sure to put an ear-to-ear grin on your face in the corners, no matter what you choose. I say order the Star Specs and never look back

Smile AP1 Wheels

Hello All,

I've just joined this forum and am hoping for some advise.

I have a 2000 AP1 with the standard 16" wheels. I would like to upgrade them to a 18" wheel. I thought this would be straight forward but I'm getting conflicting information; Someone told me it would be fine to run the new wheels with the same size 255/40/18 tires all round where as someone else told me not to muck around with the tire sizes as it affect the car handling?

Has anyone upgraded to 18" wheels with the same sizes tyres front and back and if so has it had any effect?

Cheers
