The time has finally come to replace my tires. The front tires were in pretty good shape but the back tires were quite worn. After doing some research I realized that these cars go through back tires twice as fast as the front. I looked online and found that the Goodyear Eagle GT tires had been discontinued so there was no chance of finding just rear tires. After doing some more research, I found that a tire that does well on these cars at a budget-friendly rate is the Continental ExtremeContact Sport. I ended up ordering a set from Tire Rack and they arrived in just two days with free shipping.
Putting an S2000 on jack stands is no easy task. I had to drive up on 2x4s first so that I could get my low profile jack under the front to the central jack point. I just have to remember to lower the car onto the wood or I won’t be able to pull the jack out from under the car.
Time will tell how these tires perform. I haven’t taken it for a drive yet but hopefully, the weather will cooperate. I liked the Eagle GT tires so if these are as good, I will be happy. I plan to order a pair of rear tires in late 2021 so that I have them. I expect to have 60 percent of the fronts left when the rears are due again.
