    $1000 set of wheels and tires vs. $4000 set of wheels and tires. Does more expensive mean more better? And is it worth it?
    We bought two identical Nissan 350z coupes and have been modifying them to be FUN, daily drivers that you can take to the track. James Pumphrey and Zach Jobe are on Team Hi and their 350z gets the expensive parts. Nolan Sykes and Aaron Parker are on Team Low, and their 350z gets the cheap ones.
    For this episode Team Hi bought Advan RG3’s at $676 per wheel and Bridgestone Potenza RE71Rs at $265 per tire for a total of $3,764.
    Team Low went with XXR 527s at $127 per wheel and Federal 595 RS-RR at $136 per tire for a total of $1,052.
    The two teams will mount these wheel and tire setups on their newly lowered 350Zs and then take them out to the skidpad. We’ll look at 0 to 60 times, stopping distances, how many Gs they can pull. Can cheap tires match the performance of the expensive brands?

    The fact that ya gotta keep replacing tires, the minimal performance difference is not enough to go for the much more expensive tires. That cost difference will just grow as time goes on and the more you replace tires. Plus, with cheaper tires, you’ll be less hesitant to burn rubber, which will make them more fun. Expensive tires make you drive more conservatively to save the rubber and dollars.

    From a distance, Lo car’s rims look a lot better but, once you get close enough to see that multi lug pattern, that kinda kills it.

    New tires will always preform the same new, the expensive ones will just keep the same or close to the same performance for the whole life of the tire

    Clearly the more expensive wheels and tire made a huge impact since the high car was originally slower .

    I think you pay 100% more for 15% improvement. so basically it is a question of "is it worth it" for the 15%

    Nice! But now I think you should try Michelin and Dunlop for high end tires. From experience, those are the best. Sorry if they're not american but hey, only the germans know how to build a proper car and the french used to ;)

    The size of the contact patch has nothing to do with the width of the tire. This is a very common misconception. There have been extensive tests done to prove that a wider tire does not equal a greater sized contact patch.
    The type of rubber used, thickness of the rubber, and the air pressure are what dictates the size of the contact patch.
    Take a tire that is 300mm wide vs a tire that is 250mm wide. Assuming that the tires are identical (except for the width of them) and the air pressures are identical, the wider tire may have a contact patch of 275mm wide x 20mm long. This would give a contact patch area of 275mm x 20mm to equal 5,500 mm^2. For the tire that has a width of 250mm, the contact patch would be less wide, say 225mm, but the length would be longer to equal the same 5,500 mm^2, so 5,500 mm^2 / 225mm to equal 24.44mm in length.

    Great video, love your guys work, but I do think it’s worth mentioning one tiny aspect about wheel fitment that you left out that’s super important: hub bore.

    the dumbest thing about tires is still the fact that they have 3 numbers, all measuring the width of something, and they choose 3 different units of measurement to do it.

    The extra four pounds come mainly from the additional spokes. Stick both in a bathtub and measure the difference in displacement.
    I’m going to have to try those Federals on my MR2T. It eats rear tires in 18k miles with a proper alignment on every set. I’ve been running Firestone Indy 500 255/45-17 but I want to push them to 275
