You did NOT SPEND money on tires, instead you INVESTED money into SAFETY EQUIPMENT.

It's all in the "presentation".

How about running kumho v70,s on the rear?

There a road/track tyre, and i can get them a lot cheaper than a pair of ad08,s. ???

Use the same brand and type of tire front and rear.

Yes, great tires. I have them on my 964 as well. I replaced my Cup 1 17s with Hankook Ventus V12 with the Yokohama AD08 on 18s. This was a big difference, although the Hankook are great for street/light track, but these Neova tires really grip like heck. I have them for just about 1800 miles now and wear is also very reasonable.

Love the AD08's. Have about 2,000 miles on them now. Excellent.

They were written up in a recent tires test in the August Car & Drive. It placed very-very well in the Top 10 (#3).

You crack me up at times mate

As others say, get the same tyres for front and rear. The Kumho v70s being track tyres will have stiff side walls so the ride on the road will be even harsher than the SO2s you're replacing. So stick with AD08s all round for a better compromise for road and track.

Update.
AD08s r a good tyre.

Since fitting them on the front have noticed a big improvement on grip, and stability/confidence no more front end skid.
But have still locked it up in the damp.

Much better than the old bridgestone.
