Each to their own though!
My rs3 was harsh on the staggered 30 series front wheels, it was inverse of my m3, tolerable on street but in hills the dampening fell apart on a bumpy B road at speed. My f80 on tractive suspension is about as good as a mcpherson strut front end will get, but in inner city no dampener can mask a 30 series sidewall plus all that adhoc chassis rigidity

You can buy suv's with sports sedan like seating positions

F pace svr is prob best in this respect, the high waistline and centre console makes you sink into the belt line, the seat itself goes low too. Apart from the view out you'd think you're in an xe

I'd buy one if I didn't already have that drivetrain in my f type

What I'm waiting for is a 2020 trackhawk, that hellcat motor is a laugh, full of theatre to make the daily drive entertaining. You wouldn't ever track or hill run it but it's got a proper set of external reservoir bilsteins and double wishbones so it doesn't feel wallowy in corners

To pull off an suv as a daily, you need to pair it with a sports car as well

edit! seems my dream of a 2020 trackhawk will be a dice roll given how bad fca are doing in aus (and even worldwide) - other options for f80 replacement won't be available til well into 2020, if not 2021

contemplating those cs wheels now in the 19/20 spec to tie me over

my thoughts are selling a used set of oe cs wheels would be far easier than some custom offset hre's when it's time to part car out

what's the going rate for a set via local dealer wheels only

Funny thing is I'm looking at the exact same thing... was wondering what the going dealer rate for CS wheels is... with ps4s'

And what's the going rate for a used but pristine set of shadow 666s' with PSS'... to sell... lol

Yep I can't justify that

Cheaper to source o/s

These are even cheaper 4-5k shipped with all our taxes and duties, and better offsets too, I've been advised they are amending barrel design on the 19" to fit front ccb

I'd only need 265/35/19 fronts, 850 max for ps4s

I can re-use my rear 285/30/20 ps4s

But I agree it's still a lot of money for arguably little gain, especially if you're at end of ownership

I don't get all the hype around Cup2's in the rain. I've been running Cup2's for 15,000KM on my CS and I would say they're fine in the rain. Perhaps if you track them and the heat cycles cause hardening of the rubber, then they may become slippery. For street driving however, i've found they're perfectly fine, even when doing 110 on the highway in heavy rain they didn't just slip out for me at all.

Garage List
I'm just back from Targa High Country where it was snowing and very wet around the mountain on the stages.

I ran Cup 2 N1s and the difference between the wet/damp conditions and the dryer conditions was night and day.

In the wet I'd say I had to work hard to keep up with cars with all weather tires like 4S or CSC6 but that was on very winding roads. I think for those conditions tyres like the 4s are a little faster than the Cup 2s and feel much more stable.

From my experience, the Cup 2s are not bad in the wet, they are just not confidence inspiring like they are in the dry and to drive them fast in the wet on winding roads you need to warm them up a little and be very good at driving at the limit as you can feel them wriggling around on the damp or wet roads, but hit some dry patches and you can leap ahead.

I agree on the straights in the wet at speed there is really no difference in the rain and you would need a lot of standing water to make them aquaplane but in those conditions you would probably slow down anyway.

Interestingly, at Targa most of the competition cars were still running R compound tires despite the bad weather, although half a dozen or so did slide off in the corners!

IMO its worth having the Cup 2s for our climate if you are into spirited drives near the limit or even fast take offs. If it rains they are still ok but you just can't go throwing the car around like you do in the dry.
