Thread merged. A search of this thread mentions these a few times, although I don't know of anyone who uses them.
It's also worth noting that the standard rear size is 245, not 255.

If you're going for Yokos, then the AD08R would be a better bet.

The S2000CR ran 255s - cannot remember what the tyre was, now.

Probably no longer available...yup RE070s.

Default A052

Hi,

has anybody tried the Yokohama A052 and maybe even compared them against the AD08R?
Any info on this tyre would be great.
Thanks.

Looks like it's the replacement for the A048 about which there are some comments in this thread. Trackday tyres, really, so they'll outperform the AD08R but might be very "exciting" in the cold and wet.

They have correct front and rear sizes for 16" wheels but it doesn't look like they do the correct 245/40 R17 rear size for 17" wheels.

They are very expensive, so far as I can see, as well.

Yeah, I know that it is the successor of the A048. It will probably be similar and better....but that's just a guess. Some reviews would be great.

Bit of a strange question - has anyone got a set of RE050 MZ 245/40 R17s they no longer want?

I've some good fronts but have killed the rears, or course.

Or if they'd like some good fronts to go with their rears...PM me.

I'd stick this in FS/W, but I don't yet know which way round it would be...

There was a set of 4 kicking around the UK FB group, maybe ask Ian? 4mm all round so not new but still useable.

I've just thrown my old ones in the bin, i got them 2nd hand and after a couple of years of minimal miles and a winter in storage, they'd cracked in the channels.

Set of PS4 going on next weekend after getting the wheels re-powdercoated in gloss black

Yeah, I thought they might be like rocking horse teeth.

In which case, it might be time to decide between AD08Rs & PS4s. But I always associate Michelins with soggy sidewalls (the Yokos aren't that stiff by BS standards) so I'm leaning towards the former.

Got some AD08R fitted yesterday,was using Federal 595RSR 225/255-17s
225 Fed 9.1 inches,& 8.9inches AD08R
255 Fed 10.2 inch,& 10.4 inches AD08R
Saving 3.2 LB over present 595RSR.<both225/255>
AD08R- 215/245 17s-over 225/255 595RSR.would have less rotational mass saving of 6.2LB
For ref:
215/45=8.5inchesAD08
245/40=9.8 inchesAD08.
225/45=8.9 inches AD08.
255/40=10.4 inches AD08
