Re: tire shop troubles

Here are some pics of my winter set-up. I took them today at Killington - the car was a bit dirty from the access road. I have 17" Bronze Rota SDRs with Dunlop Wintersport M2s. I have yet to get them on real snow, but have been surprised by the performance and feel on dry pavement. Will report more upon the first snow test.

Thanks for the pics. I was wondering what bronze would look like on the black. That is the combo I am thinking about. Nice.

I should have my bronze SDRs anyday now and hoping to get the winter tires mounted and balance so I can put them on over Thanksgiving Day weekend.

BTW, anyone still thinking about these better hurry. I had a tough time finding a place that still had them in stock. Pretty much the only thing available is bronze. One place just replied to me last night after a couple weeks and says they just got some silver ones in. I really wanted steel grey but no one had any and did not know a eta so instead of waiting and possibly getting stuck in the snow I went with the bronze. They will probably be dirty 95% of the time anyway.

Thanks to a very annoying and drawn out situation I've ended up ordering two sets of Rota SDRs. (Long story short, the first place I ordered from was stalling and I wasn't sure if they were ever going to get me some wheels so I ordered some other ones and they both ended up shipping on the same day).

So I'll have a set of Bronze SDRs arriving early next week. If anybody is in need of these wheels I'll have a set. I'm in no way trying to make money off these, but I would be very happy if I could recover my money.

If anybody is tentatively interested in the set (tentatively since I have yet to get them) send me a PM and I'll get back to you. I live in northern Ontario (about 300km North of TO) so anybody in Ontario could get them quick.

Thanks guys, Pete.

I have been back and forth on whether to get a rack or not. For now I am just putting the deck behind the passenger seat. I am riding a 163 these days and it fits relatively well. I have a tarp covering the floor and seat. I think you could probably fit two boards but I have not tried yet

One thing I will say about the M2's is that they kick up quite a bit more mud than the RE070s. I know this one has been beat to death, but has anyone found Rally Flaps at a decent price.
