Does Curt daily that car on those tires too or just swap them on to race and drive to/from events?
Daily as well.

Also reading on the SCCAForums it looks like the new focus ST will be getting classed in DS.

makes sense given how similar it is to the MS3

He must rotate them on the regular and not drive very much at all. I failed with the focus and never rotated the tires cuz i'm dumb but the fronts were almost gone after 7k mi

Then again i'm still not entirely convinced the collision shop didn't do a giant burn out once they told me the car was totaled cuz the rear tires looked fine


edit: Jordan.. don't think a repost on here but I've seen that before and it's epic!

yea can't figure that out Clayton/Curt and most others I've talked to seem to get at least 15k miles out of them at a minimum

also more for timmy
Don't forget to join Mazdaspeed Motorsports Development for cheaper OEM parts. You only have to report two race results per year and autocross counts!
