NISMO tyre wear

I'm going to see if I can get hold of continental sport contact 2's as these are still meant to be very good but last longer . They are discontinued so hard to get now .. I've also been told the toyo proxys sport T1 is very good

Just an update, Nissan are replacing my tyres at cost to them as they have identified an issue with the continental tyres so will be fitting Michelins, I'd reccomend anyone else with a nismo whose tyres have worn down quickly to get in touch with Nissan CS

Wish I'd kept mine for evidence as they should last 20 k miles

Mine are the super sports . Prob still soft but will be intersting how long they last . Don't really care as they're free :)

I had ordered falken ze914's as these had good reviews , however if the michelins last I'll stick with them . My contisport 5's had about 4mm tread left on inner and outta edge but Middle was on wear blocks . Always at 33psi has stated by nissan , I wonder if their stated pressure is too high !! Maybe I just had a duff pair as the Middle strip wore with 2 raised edges running round it , it is bizarre.

I'm ordering some Kumho Ecsta le Sport KU39 next week. Read good reviews and had Kumhos before on my old Mondeo which was about 190hp and over 400nm and they handled it well.
