Well, I hit 10k miles on the Ct today. Just gets better.... cheers
Hankook K-105 205 55 16 started at 40psi last year,
dropped to 38psi this spring and it felt a little better,
dropped to 35psi 3 weeks ago and WOW way better.
Definatly a smoother ride at 35. Should i try lower????
Tire shows no wear, on the flat or the edges.
Even had a new experiance today, took a hard right turn out of a stop sign,
got on it in 1st and the tire broke loose and spun affraid WTF!!
Ok enuff of that, now I know it will spin.....

Thanks again to all you CT gurus here...
I have 1 ridin buddy that went DS and another going this week. (right Deb??)
least they can keep up in the twisties now... Razz

Hello Spud,
That's great wow 10k, and still looking like a new tire, I should lower my psi and try it again.
When my tire is cold i put in 36psi and when it is wormed up (about 6 miles) i put in 40psi , so I think I'll do the pressure waltz again and go lower this time just to see how low i can go with out feeling uneasy.
just a word of advice, after 10,000 miles you should take off your rear wheel and re-lube your drive splines with moly-paste.
Just looking out for you brother.Very Happy
