Time for new tires again for the GTR. Nissan dealer was quoting 370,000 JPY (installed) which comes out to about $3400... Said to heck with that and tried with a local shop that is a Dunlop distributor. They told me that there was no stock available to them in the country and to either get them from Nissan or they could re-import a set but would have no guarantee on the age of the tires.

Did some shopping on yahoo auctions here and found a local set that was never installed and made in October 2018. Got them shipped to my house and then put all of them in the car (one in trunk and 3 in the seats, lol) and took it to the local shop yesterday. They charged me about $350 for everything including disposal fee, nitrogen fee, etc, etc. Guy there is a perfectionist.

Good news is that I saved around a grand for the trouble and it was definitely time to get the new ones on! Down to or past the wear indicators on all of them and the inside of the driver's side rear tire was toast - both steel and fiber were hanging out. There's a off ramp on the highway on the way home from work that I will regularly attack and I think it caused it.

Bad news is now it needs a set of pads and rotors.

From the looks of that bad one it almost appears that there was some delamination or significant event that carved the corner down. Alignment has been checked regularly. Probably would not have lasted much longer.

There were no other brand choices in a similar size you could have shipped?

There is a Bridgestone that is an OEM tire but I donít think itís as good as the Dunlop. Wanted to keep runflats on the car so there were limited choices.

Plan for today was front + rear brakes and oil change...

Ended up getting the front brakes done and oil done. Fucking caliper slide bolt was seized up and rusted. Took way to fucking long to get it out.

Also tried Amazon 0w20 full synthetic this time around. Lets see how it is. Engine seems to not mind it.

Yep, simple, cheap and work great. I even had them triggered by a tab on the bcm when I had factory remote start.

Took the GTO out for an innocent cruise today to clear my head. Crossed paths with a 5th Gen Camaro. I didn't want anything, but he did. Had to put quite the hurt on him. His buddy recorded it, so now they'll have a great memory to look back on. They were good sports tho, smiles the whole time.
