The real deal – wheels.

FINALLY.

I’ve been autocrossing casually for several years. I’ve even tried my hand at a HPDE (High Performance Driving Event) out at motorsport ranch a while back. Each time, however, I’ve been driving my car in street trim – on street tires.

I’ve finally gotten the Miata to the point where I feel that the street tires are holding me back a bit. I sold an old set of wheels and picked up some 949 Racing 6UL’s with Nitto NT-01 tires. These are R-compound tires that should go a long way into helping the car stick a lot better.

Race tires have been something I’ve wanted to try out for a long time. I’m looking forward to the next autocross so I can see what they’ll do.
