Re: 2018 TIRE INDEX ADJUSTMENTS

OK. Here's the latest for the Tire Index:

> 301 TW : 0.98
300 - 201 TW : 1.00
200 - 100 TW : 1.02
< 100 TW : 1.04

Is everyone (or almost everyone) good now?

Re: 2018 TIRE INDEX ADJUSTMENTS

Also, CDC doesn't account for suspension, but I think we probably should. Suspension classes might be: - High end aftermarket / stiff - Basic aftermarket / firm - Stock (moderate roll) (Miata, modern sedans) - Stock (seriously...that passed tech?!) (The challenge of course is assigning numbers to t...

Since you mentioned tire wear, how long does a fresh set of tires normally last(1 season - 2 season).
Depends on the tire and how you drive them, along with the car (heavy or light). My guess is that with performance street tires, you should get at least 2 years.
