So 4no Pilot Sport 4 tyres fitted to my spare wheels at Kwik Fit today. They had a right old game getting the tyres on an off due to the profile of the inner part of the rim and removing the and replacing the bolt on TPMS in each one. Took them 3 hours to do 4 tyres! Anyway, all good and I've registered online for the hotel voucher which is now being processed. Track day scheduled at Goodwood on Monday where I plan to finish off the Avon ZV5 tyres on the Aero before bolting on the new Pilot Sports. Fingers crossed for the sunshine!


Cheers, Paul

This is what worries me with Kwik Fit, had some terrible experiences with them.

If they damage one of my rims they’re irreplaceable


Enjoy GW. Who’s organised it?

In fairness to Kwik Fit they took their time to ensure all was done just right and allowed me to stand and watch. The GW track day is organised by Woldingham Drivers Club - its expensive at £520 per car however you only get sensible drivers in expensive cars that all respect one another. I can see if there is a last minute spare slot as they occasionally get cancellations. The driver briefing is 09:15 sharp on Monday - lunch is included.


Cheers, Paul

Very kind of you Paul, unfortunately I’m not around Monday.

Done Goodwood many times a few years back now but particularly liked the Aero around there.

Great circuit but not much run off.

New hairy front discs and decent pads going on next well so I’m all set.

Let me know if they organise another 👍

Hi Viper, I know we're going "Off topic" of the staggered rubber, however, I'm interested to know what discs and pads you're planning to add? My discs look pretty much 100% so I'd no plans to change them just yet. BHM did say that there were some very early signs of thermal cracks on the pads and they recommended EBC Red Stuff (which I used to run on a modified MX-5) so I've ordererd a set of those to add over the next week or two, after GW when I'll also be putting the new PS4 tyres on. That's the first time I've ever used the phase "PS4" in relation to me...


Cheers, Paul

Discs are slotted with bolted bell. (Semi floating??)

Pads are mintex.

Supplied by SiFab.

With post up when they arrive

Semi-floating discs on a road car - last of the late brakers!

I’m not sure that’s the term.

On my old RS 911 they were floaters where these are more bolted tight but with a separate bell. (I think )
