  1. Drift Mode = 'Blowout' Mode?

    Focus RS TroubleShooting
    *86 degrees F, been driving up the canyons for about 30 minutes in my stock Cup 2s.* After about 3,500 miles, I decided it was finally time to try Drift Mode. :eagerness: Put it in 1st gear, steer all the way to the left, floor it, and spin 180 degrees. The equivalent of dipping my toe in the...

    Focus RS Wheels and Tires
    So i had lost of fun last year lapping against some Subaru STI WRZ... Anyone tried lapping with some Nitto NT01 tire? If a order some, just want to make sure i ordered 235/35R 19, correct? Also, any fix on that overheating when lapping more then 12 minutes. Any package out there? Thanks guys...
  3. Difference Between Tire Size Identification/Markings? - Pirelli vs Hoosier

    Focus RS Wheels and Tires
    Alright, so, sorry for the rookie question here. I'm thinking of getting a set of track tires for track days (and only track days of course - I know these can't and shouldn't be run on the street). I've never bought a set of track tires and have run into a discrepancy, as I understand tire...
  4. O.Z. Hyper GT HLT on Pilot Alpin PA4

    Focus RS Wheels and Tires
    Being in Colorado, the forecast is to have our first snow this Monday. Luckily, when I called my tire shop today, the wheels and tires I ordered last week were in. They are super busy to put them on the vehicle, but they can get them mounted and balanced and ready for pick up. I weighed one...
  5. Tire puncture on my Cup tires!

    Focus RS Wheels and Tires
    Found my rear passenger tire flat and drove it to Mr. Tire. They took the wheel off and found a screw embedded to the head on the inner shoulder of the tire. They told me they don't patch anything that is not on the flat part of the tire. They told me to go to a gas station and get it "plugged"...
  6. Pothole Damage

    Focus RS Wheels and Tires
    Hope this does not happen to anyone else - taking wheel off later to get it replaced. No wheel damage but the tires seem hard to come by for replacement. Found 1 dealer with 1 tire in stock.
  7. Best track tires

    Focus RS Wheels and Tires
    Any suggestion? With a lack of camber adjustment not every tire works. I've just got a set of Dmack dmt rc - it's a WRC tarmac tire. I was hoping that it will be great on the track, but it isn't. It's actually worst than original michelin super sport.
  8. Cost for New Tires - LA CA- Michelin Sport Cup 2 vs Super Sport.

    West / West Coast Owners
    I was curious so I went to my favorite Tire shop, Hanks Tires, Woodland Hills To replace the awesome super sticky sport cup 2 they come with - $ 325 per tire - $1489 for 4 (inc balance etc) out the door. The lesser track Super Sports are $75 a tire less. Both would need to be ordered and are not...
  9. Looking To Purchase RS Winter Wheel and Tire Package

    Focus RS Wheels and Tires
    Please PM me if you are looking to sell your OEM winter wheel and tire package. I screwed myself by not adding it before selected for scheduling and now I cannot add it. If I must I will go aftermarket for winter wheels and tires I will; but I really like the Ford package and am pissed I...
