Ventus V12, had them - loved them.

Its also drift night so there will be a lot to see.

Can't speak for the sessantas but my v12's are okay for what they are (budget summer tire). I've heard they are poor in the rain, so with fall and winter coming I would take that into consideration

I had them in the rain/cold/hot and they were absolutely great. One of my favorite tires. Honestly, on par w/ my most favorite tire the Bridgestone RE760s.

Awesome and congrats on the new ride, I like the front end of the F30 but the back makes it look like a mini F10/F11.

One question about the Hankook V12's, are they noisy? because I hate my 452's they are noisy as hell on the highway.

Thanks, I really dislike the rear and the size of the car but its a compromise lol. Don't have the car yet and I hope it comes correctly build!

I find the V12s very quiet compared to some of the other tires I've had.

Are the cops always racing at that one? I know they have a Top The Cops event, but not sure if that's every Wednesday. I would be a little worried going there with them lol.

Alright, thanks for the info my brotha's from anotha motha i'll give Hankook a try and i'm pissed right now.

My little brother used my extra steering wheel to pretend to drive and little did I know the back was touching my aluminum trim because when I looked I saw it touching the leatherette where the cup holders were so I thought it's fine but by the time we got home I saw scratches all over my passenger side of my trim.

I guess it's time to wrap my trim in something.

I don't know about dipping it in carbon fiber, if I dipped my trim it would be a solid color. Also wouldn't the scratches still show even after I dipped it?
