I went from an 06 987S to an 08 997S Cab

For AutoX use Blue

The cold performance of the Blue is better, so for AutoX I would go for Blue. Personally I run with Blue for Street, AutoX and Track. They are nice pads.

I have 19s, you need 265/30/19 rears and 235/35/19 fronts. Don't use summer only tires in temps less than mid to high 30s, mid 40s are better. In any snow and ice summer tires are scary!

As others...

Hi Blinkwatt

I live in Nevada City about 68 miles NNE of Sacramento. There are a number of people living around Sac that post on this board and PPBB. Perhaps a little drive is in order.
