1991 Acura NSX: New Tires
December 07, 2011
Yesterday our NSX got new tires, not because the rubber on the car was worn, but because it was old.
We wanted an aggressive summer tire, but honestly we saw no real need to put high-dollar, extreme rubber on a 20 year old sports car that has a known history for eating its back tires.
In the end we narrowed it down to two choices of the many available in the NSX's staggered stock sizes, the very aggressive and more expensive Bridgestone Potenza RE-11 and the Yokohama S Drive. We went with the less expensive Yoks, which saved us about $200.
Total bill with labor was $646.96 at Stokes Tire Pros, our local gurus.
We'll test the car soon at the track and report the numbers.
