    Shredded a rear tire on the way to work yesterday

    Fun stuff. I already have tires ordered.

    Rear: 305-30-19 Bridgestone Potenza RE11's

    Front: 265-35-18 Pirelli PZero Nero's

    Here's a pic of my blown tire:

    Sucks man. I just blew my rear 295/30 18" tire last Thursday. I also had signed up to take it to the track last weekend but had to cancel. New tire comes in tomorrow.

    Damn, I just saw this thread. Do you think this is because we lowered the car so much and the tires are so big? I remember seeing inside rubs.
