awesome, must sound lovely.

that used to be true, they have really stepped up their game though. between V12's and RS3's they are probably the best bang for the buck tire around. I use RS3's on my track car and track wheels for the e90 and havent encountered any issues. they take a bit of time to get temp into but once theyre up to par they stick like crazy for a street compound.

What's good everyone, figured I would join in since i'm in the same situation.

e90 looks great! Stance and everything is sick. Were you thinking of changing anything?

What's wrong with hankook's? For every day use, they seem to be a good choice based on price and performance.

if you think the v12's are a performance tire, you haven't had much experience with performance tires. just saying......

for the street, great. but if you are looking for that performance edge, i don't think most users see it with the v12.

I actual have no performance experience so good call on that. Just wanted some insight.

Just looking for something on the street. The guy that I just bought my car from put a new set of V12's on the rear. Need to purchase a set for the front. I don't know if I would want to go through the hastle of selling the rear's in order to purchase a whole new set.

I used to have a set of Falken FK-452's that I really enjoyed. The V12's seem to be on the same level as those though.

I dont think he called it a "performance" tire, I believe his point is similar to mine its a great "bang for the buck" tire, for what you are paying its a great tire, its not gonna match up to Michelin pss's but its also not ~$500 a tire.

im not one for mixing tires, so may as well throw v12 on the front.. especially if you dont want to sell the rears.

IMO, the best performance tires for the dollar are nittos.

That's exactly what I was saying!!! Bang for the buck type of tire.

I'll def check out the Nitto's. If I can sell the v12's for a solid price then I might think of purchasing a whole set of something a little better but to be honest, I think my money is better well spent towards other things. I guess we will ahve to see when the time comes around.

Thanks for the advice. Now i'm searching tire's for the rest of my day at work hahaha.

be cheap and just get two v12's for the front as well. dont roll on different brands thats just bad for street driving the v12's (imo) are really good. Unless youre gonna be running qualifiers all day they should last and provide all the street performance you need. and theyre cheap I like cheap because I go through tires very very very very very very fast, especially on my track car. (also why i good with hankook) ive tried other brands rcomps and I just cant afford to buy a new set of $2k tires every two or three months.

Haha, sounds good. I always find myself looking for just a little nicer and a little better. I thought I could avoid the mod bug but as time goes on, there's no use. New wheels, need new tires, needs a better stance, needs a better exhaust, maybe i should get a tune. bla blah blah. It just NEVER ends.

I'm getting a set of VMR V710's to put my summer tires on. Previous owner scuffed up the stock wheels so putting winter tires on there.

I would love to put either EPK or coilovers on the car but with the G37, you get some serious pos/neg camber when changing the stance. So once you change the ride height, that involves front and rear camber kits and your now looking at $3k if your buying coilovers or even over $1k for just springs. Still deciding what to do.

Since i'm buying 19" V710's I'm hoping the ride height remains descent and I don't have to worry about it looking like a 4x4. Otherwise looks like i'm saving up for springs.

im not too familiar with the g37, but couldnt you just add some camber plates and call it a day?

Save up for the GTR 100%. 2014 GTR is supposed to have some serious improvements on it. 2014 Corvette is going to be awesome also. 2014 BMW (every new model they are coming out with) should be pretty sweet also. 2014 is a big year so I think 1 more year without touching the car isn't a big deal.


I honestly think its the people running very aggresive setup's on 20" wheels that have the camber problems and when they do, they need the plates and adjustable camber arms. I'm sticking with the 19" size and probably won't have much of a problem. I'm just worried about falling into a money pit because I want this car to be comfortable enough for full year driving (getting me through NY winters) and get me through the next couple years. Then i'll get something that I can dedicate as a "fun weekend" car and then have a commuter that gets 40+ mpg lol.
