nissanman312 Posted March 16, 2019 Share Posted March 16, 2019 (edited) I just wanted to share something I have found running these as others may want to try before they buy if they can. So since I fitted these I have had a what can only be described as a funny left to right wriggle sensation. It is very strange it's not all the time and seems to be worse over undulating surfaces and changing lanes etc I have been all over the car spanner checked all of the suspension and was at a loss as what to look at next Anyway on Friday I bit the bullet and called centre gravity to see if they could look over the car for me as they set the car up a little over a year ago and it felt extremely planted and tracked down the road beautifully. I spoke to Pete who set the car up big shout out to them for giving me the time of day they are super busy and he took the time out of his lunch to call and talk through things He asked me what I had changed and i said the only change made was the mps4s and as soon as i said that he was pretty sure of the problem. He then proceeded to tell me that he had 3 cars in that week all complaining of identical symptoms one was a 997 c2 one was a 991 gt3 and I cant remember the other but he said all 3 had fitted 4s tyres. He said one felt so lose he came back after the test drive and double checked everything He said he changed the wheels on the 2s to a set with a different tyre and the sensation was gone He advised that in his opinion it was the multi compound tred blocks and the tred blocks being quite high and thought that it would settle down as the tyres wear he said ultimately they are awesome tyres I mentioned I was running the quaife diff and he thought that could be compounding the issue if the diff was trying to shuffle power around on the rear The tred blocks are very soft you can almost move them with your fingers. Dont get me wrong compared to the Bridgestone that were awfull and would just snap at grip limit the grip is epic but I just thought this was a characteristic people may want to know about if considering using these tyres.
