    I am thinking that I am going to give these a try next year.

    Stepping down to a 255 to get a few points back and be able to run them on stock wheels.

    Maxis has a pretty rocking contingency program for time trials. FREE tires:p. 1-3 placement with at least 5 people in class and they will give you free tires. whoop whoop.

    Talked to a S197 racer and he said they where comparable to the NT01s that I am currently running.

    Getting some points back by running the 255 instead of the 275 would also let me work on the chassis stiffening that the car needs.

    I've heard good things about those from a miata guy who usually runs NT01'S or Hoosiers. And NT01/RC1 get dropped down to +6 in 2015.

    whoop whoop. And I can loose a few points by dropping to a 255.

    Still really stupid that I take points for the stock size. lame. My base class tire size is a 235.
