Here's a few more pics

Was out and about today, and I am pleasantly surprised by the improvements in acceleration, braking and going round corners as Disco pointed out. Can't wait to try this setup out on track!

Even based just on road driving, car definitely feels much lighter, it's definitely a difference you can feel through the drivers seat. Felt easier to move off the line, easier on the clutch for instance, but that could just be the placebo effect

I'll investigate titanium bolts as I've had to reuse my old bolts and they look... bad. They've corroded horribly over the 10 years since the car was made so time for a refresh

JPS... it did cross my mind but I'll give the decals a miss, been there done that Grin ... also if I went and put the old wheels back the car might look a little odd!

I'm liking the Cup 2's as well, they're quieter than I remember my old Cup tyres being years ago, and they feel more direct than the Super Sports (maybe that's because they're harder plus it was only around 2/3C today). They seemed a bit quieter than the Super Sports too come to think of it which surprises me

I'll report back again after I do a trackday or 2, hopefully won't be too long after the weather improves

Regarding the Supersports, having come from the PS2's i used to run them at 36psi cold as found it was more road friendly/compliant - they then heated up. I then tried the same method with the SS's as they quickly got upto 39 PSI (according to my aftermarket tyre sensor thing).

However i found the rears still quite 'squishy' and the tail abit more happier shall we say - not a comforting thought for me, on the road with curbs and probably lack of skill to catch it.

Now run the tyres at the recommended warm pressures when cold and has stiffened the sidewall up/prefer it for my driving style. I believe the SS get replaced this year

Cheers Terry Thumb

Kingston, yep PS4 replaces PS3 and SS. Not sure about availability though, but I'll be sticking with the Cup 2's and SS sets I have for the time being

Liking the way the cars looking with the gold wheels, big improvement on the red and then blue stripes Thumb

To finish it off you need some side decals like the 4.0 but with gold and matt black colouring.

I agree, wheels can definitely make or break a car's looks!

Every time I look at these pics I can't help but think the wheels look bigger than 19", even though they are exact OEM fitment. Must be because I've had invisible black wheels for such a long time....

I'm wondering what to do with the old wheels & tyres, might keep them a while and sell if turns out I'm just not using them Question

They suit the car well and your statement above is something I've tried to understand with the trend of black wheels, you may as well have black plastic hub caps on a car as you can't tell what they are anyway, lighter coloured wheels look sooooo much better and make any colour car look better.

still like the black and suits with red but change always good Wink

I'm a little confused... guidance says:

" MOUNTING NEW PADS ON USED DISCS (rotors)
We do not recommend using discs, which are pre-bedded, or have been used with friction material other than PAGID....

and then..

"If possible, pads should be bedded on used but NOT worn out brake discs"

I'm switching from OEM pads to RS29s. My rotors aren't too bad so probably don't need replacing just yet, but do I bed my pads in on my current rotors or should I look to change rotors at the same time I change my discs?"
