I'm right there with ya. I really need them to last until the DE at least. Actually I may not drive it at the event now. I'd like to wait until summer to put new rubber on. Regardless, I'll just be replacing the rears. The fronts still have a ton of life left on them.

As short a life as these tires seem to have I'll probably go with something less expensive and much wider.

Will it get you pulled over for drifting an under-pass in 2nd gear, and then let go with a warning because the cop has read about it and likes the car?

Yes it will!

You got a better cop than I did. My guy asked if the car was an M3. Seriously? You're California Highway Patrol, and it's your job is to look at cars all day. You can't tell the difference between a 1 series and a 3 series?

I'd expected better; I guess even some CHP aren't car guys.

"Wish it" instead of "Will it?" (Sorry ladies )
