Not to change th subject or anything . . . .
Just put new shoes on the Dub. Had Metzler Lasertec's. Lasted about 7K miles. Rear was shot, front had tread but was also scalloped, with predictable influence on the handling--wretched.
Put new BT45's on and went with the 120 in the rear. First impression is--really positive. Though they're too new to push yet, the turn in is great, and they're stable in turns and at speed, unlike what the Metzler's had become.
Old . . . and . . . Slow
