Default Radial Tires in S.S.

Warning glowing review of Radial Tires follows.

No drama, they installed four S4s and no charge checked the alignment AND provided a printout of the alignment numbers.

What is not to love?

Paul is great. No news here. Usually the best price for tires installed. I saw warning i think you meant to type warm and glowing. Lol

Thanks. Warm and glowing sounds better.

After install 4 new tires. Open for suggestions for Autocross and DE. Radial made no changes.

Maybe a little more camber up front if it can be achieved without modification. And a slight adjustment to right front toe so it is slightly out like the left side. I would not be too aggressive with front toe-out though, especially if you drive the car a lot on the street.

worst part about radial is navigating the cluster that is getting in and out of the area / their parking lot. maybe i can drone my wheels in for a flip / balance....

Gotch. Thanks Man-O. Glad I'm not too far off the mark.

Spiff - The old saw "this is how we have always done it" comes to mind.
