Skip the tune, buy the best tires you can and toss the junk Contis. Makes more difference than anything short of Forced Induction and drivers training.

My personal favorite is the Falken Azenis RT-615s. About the closest you will get to real race-compound rubber in a daily-driver tire.

^^^ i'm getting tires soon and since i know you're real big on tires and you seem to know a lot about all the different brands and what works best on the SVT, i was going to pm you with a question that you just answered [:)]

the only thing is, since you hinting at that tire being good for a daily driver, does that mean it's ok in the rain and snow? i'll look it up at tire rack in the meantime.

what are your thoughts on the pirelli nero zero m+s? i was thinking about those

Not sure if Wayne @ Hypnotic still has this special, but I purchased his Xcal2 w/ 2 Tunes and his Short Ram Intake for $480.

Make a BIG difference in power (especially low-end), start-up, idle, and basically improved the way the car runs.

I've had it for some time now and I've never regretted it. [thumb]


I'm sure the other Tuner's can do the same for your car. This is just my experience.

Rain=good. Snow=absolutely NOT!
You won't find any info at Tire Rack either, since they don't carry the Falken brand.

Unless you're AutoCrossing a lot, I'd opt for the P-Zero Nero M+S...especially if you want it to work in the snow.[;)]

yeah after i posted on here i went to tirerack and saw they don't have any falken tires, just didn't have time to post back on here.

how about a little cheaper tire like the kumho ecsta asx? or what other high performance tires would work well being a daily driver?


SVTbedson, there's two guys on this site that's made it easy for us. wayne at www.hypillauto.com uses the SCT and tom at www.focus-power.com uses the predator and according to your mods they'll install a tune for you.

I have the p-zero's they are excellent in every weather condition. I even drove home one night with like 8 or 9 inches of snow on the ground.
