We actually have a series 3 AU at work that won't spin the wheels on anything but a wet road, and a AU series 1 that will spin them easy in the dry.

Really strange...

I had to get rid of my 205/15's tyres on my car. Any more than half throttle i would lose traction in the dry and spin the wheels all the way up the road. In the wet it was god damn dangerous.

So i got 16in mags witth 225/50/16 Sava Intensa directional tyres and i can still spin them piss easy. Off the lights when i floor it they spin, holding the brake the spin on the spot and going around a corner i can get some serious spin all the way up to 2nd gear change.

i would say buddy you have a serious problem with your car.


sorry mate but i find that hard to beleive, judging by your signiture you dont have an aftermarket cam. 3/4 throttle spinning all the way up the road in the dry? i doubt it.

my mates 300rwkw N/A VT SS genIII wont even do that, not at 3/4 throttle. It will if full throttle is given from standing start, and thats on the 15's (205s)

his probably got less then 30% left on the treads plus the aid of road dust thats making it so easy to spin. :roll:
Unless he has a high torque cam that his not aware of. :lol:

they are almost the worst tyre i have ever driven on... a retard whos never driven a car before could smoke them!



Well they handle alot better than the bridgestone RE-88's i had on the car before. I get really good wear out off them, driving in the wet the car handles soooooooooo much better and braking has also improved especially with the ABS my car has.

and for the price i reckon there top value.


please tell me your joking? man sava's provide NO grip in the wet, iv driven in cars with near on bald 205's on the back that have more grip than any sava! theyre the s**t tyres ever, they are really soft compund which just make the car yuck to drive. the wear tho i suppose isnt too bad for such a cheap tyre. iv done about 15000km on mine an they have a fair bit of meat left

Same here, that issue was address by installing a high torque crowcam.

wtf... guys can't even get their wheels spinning in the wet? :shock:

Gawd my car was scary with my mods and the stocko 205 re92's, even overtaking they would get a spin up at 4000rpm...
Now with 235 pirelli dragons i must admit in the dry it aint exacly too easy but i still tend to burn off more rubber than i can probably afford.

Take off from shops... give it a bit of a squirt drive home 5ish mins away get out of car and smell rubber... :oops: more $$ gone.
Need lsd! 8-)

LOL!
Sava Intensas suck a** :P
Dude, you are tripping balls if you think they are a good tire!
The Simex 225/50 16s I had on my FTR's, even with f**k all tread left on them gripped better.
Should have kept those f**k things :(
I blame YTMONT for my crash lol!
