Crazy weather at VIR

Got back late Sunday from VIR. Friday started at 29 and later got to 55. Saturday was a great day that heated up to 74. Sunday morning cold and damp and I only got one session in before it rained. As I drove home through Virginia I drove an hour and a half through snow. It was a good weekend none the less. I sized up my tires to the Nitto NT01 235-40-18 front and 275-35-18 rear. They slice 5 second from my last years time and my consistency was very good.

Great photos! What brand and size tires were you using before sizing up to the 18's?

Hankook R-S3, 225-40-18, 265-35-18. They are very audible when pushed. The Nitto's were hard to make chirp

Nice pictures. Are those wheels O.Z. Allegerita HLT's?
If so, can you please PM me pics of how they look on your car while your car is stationary. I have the opportunity to buy a used set for $1100 for my Black Boxster. The set is colored dark gray like your wheels.

That's a classic photo at the oak tree at VIR! Quite a famous corner.
