Corey - Yep, your right...I should have got th Porsche Cayman instead.
I can understand that the RFT has a firmer sidewall than a non-RFT. But didn't know companies couldn't sell you two tires if you still had RFT on the rear. Also, just trying to understand exactly(technically) how N-RFT and RFT mixing would drastically upset the handling.
Yes, if I put just the front tires on...I would have two different brands of tires on the car.
Lemon Law in this state wouldn't help with tires and an alignment. BMW could argue that I hit something which caused the car to go out of alignment.
Guess I'll be TESTING the OEM tires tonight to see how long it takes for the tires to gain traction when reving up the motor and dumping the clutch (didn't say burnout). I'll also test the LSD out and see how well it works in different situations excellerating from a stop. Hey, I'm gonna get every cent / ounce of fun out of those tires before I get the new tires mounted and an alignment.
O-man - I may go ahead and do it for a day just to see first hand how harsh the difference is.
