Anyone else having to frequently fill up the stock pirellis all the time? I'm losing like 3-5psi every week or so on all four tires.
Are you on the 19s? Have you considered going down to 18s and getting a tire with more sidewall? It's made a huge difference for me, both for ride comfort and peace of mind.I've already popped 3 tires all in pot holes at night and if it happens again I'm gonna go with a different tire
Didn't do it for the weight or performance improvements to be honest. I haven't even checked the difference. Just did it for ride comfort (significantly improved) and peace of mind due to the increased sidewall that I won't have a blowout or crack a rim or both. I've read enough horror stories about the stock PP 19''s both here and on Reddit.Did you notice any performance improvements or was the weight per wheel roughly the same?
What wheels and tires did you go with.
Are they, really? Or is that just bull and the real reason is "the bigger the wheels the cooler it looks"? I'm sure the 19s would be amazing on track, but most people that buy a VN will never see one, PP or not. The roads most everywhere make for an outright awful ride on the 19s even on the softest suspension setting, and the smallest bump or pothole makes a horrid sound that makes you cross your fingers and pray that time wasn't the time you'll be left on the side of the road.What wheels and tires did you go with.
I've read that manufacturers are going with very large Wheels like the Civic type-r and Veloster n when running higher horsepower to the front wheels, to offset torque steer.
In going with the smaller wheels, did you notice any increase in torque steer?
Yeah I'm on the 19s. I like the fitment of the 19s but yeah if I pop another I gotta get more wall for sure
