Carmax info said 18/23.

Still pretty set on your old focus but thought it was interesting

2wd maybe, but that still sounds high.

From fueleconomy.org:

14 city, 18hwy, 15 combined.

2wd is 15/20 for 16 combined...

Now you get it

Also here is my dilema. I wanna keep racing the G this year but that would require new front tires. Which are $400 I would rather use on a daily atm.


Here is why I need new tires



That is on the side wall on the outside of the tire. Here is my questions.

I feel like I can run ok on the street like this as long as I don't make turns to quickly to roll over the tire onto that part of the tire. This should get me to end of the season since I have plenty of tread left on the main part of the contact patch.

However can I simply swap the tires on the wheels and run those corded parts on the inside of the track.. This way when I corner hard and tire ultimately rolls over it won't be on the corded area. Now my only issue with that theory is now the corded part is closer to the road during normal driving due to what the hell factory camber is.

Or should I really just fork out the $400 and get new tires because safety?
