    C63 Amg Tyres 20' wheels

    I've got continental sport contact 6 and two sets of MPSS, all reviews point to the PS4S being superior, I'll get a set and report back on this thread. So far, I prefer the feel of the MPSS.

    Silverstone 17th December

    A friend has helped me with an IR thermometer in the past, but more interested in brake disc and pad temperatures the tyre temperatures. You'll feel and hear when the tyre temperatures are getting too high. Slowly start at book pressure values, as you get some temperature into the tyres then...

    The PS4s are an evolution of the supersport with improved heat management across the tyre. I know this sounds crazy, but on a mixture of wet or dry trackdays I wouldn't be surprised if you got over 10 days worth plus normal driving. To stop overheating tyre pressures are key, keep dropping the...

    Silverstone 17th December

    Thank you for the link, I've not seen that site before. I've usually used camskill/oponeo in the past. I'm after 285/35/19 and 255/40/19, but like you I'm willing to upsize or downsize to try these out.

    Also to add I've got conti 5ps on the rear of the C32 and they are not as good as the super sports (limited on tyre choice due to 17" rim) the 6 is probably more of an equivalent and I've heard good things about them. So I'm even less surprised about your traction issues in the cold.

    I don't think you can get the '4S' variety yet, if you have found a supplier please post a link. You're probably referring to the 4. Just wait a little longer if possible, but if you can't go for the super sports. I'd start with somewhere like Bedford autodrome, massive run off areas and the...

    Silverstone 17th December

    My friend an I attended in my 2003 grey BMW M3, you and your mate were holding us up :) it looked as though you both were struggling in the corners and were unable to put the power down on the straights. The M3 wasn't that much slower on the straights, even with the large power deficit. I was...

    Silverstone 17th December

    A wet / greasy track day and a few AMGs present including a 2 x C63 coupes and an A45 in metallic green. Anyone from here? The Ferrari FF owner did not have a great morning.

    PPP Option

    Just looking at another popular car forum. C63 507 corner weighted 1853kg, wow that's heavy for track abuse.

    PPP Option

    Just to add some balance. As an AMG fanboy (three in the family) and owner of an e46 m3 track car, where I've done many Trackdays including Silverstone, Spa, Brands (GP), Bedford and Snetterton. The field is certainly lacking AMGs most of the time, on the straights the AMG will pull away, but a...

    AMG 19" IV SL65 rims split or not?

    Thank you CB. I've got some of the 10" split rears that I want to run 295/30/19 Michelin Pilot Super Sports but they are silver. Michelin do not do a 285/30/19, it really is a great tyre hence I'm making the compromise. I'll likely be getting the wheels refurbished at Lepsons in...

    AMG 19" IV SL65 rims split or not?

    After a lengthy search, is is true that the AMG IV19" wheels are not split rims? I'm about to get mine refurbished with new MPSS and would like to know as it has a huge impact on cost. Thanks all.

    Santa Pod RWYB Sat 4th July

    Hello, I'll be running my old SL55 there this weekend against a mate with a 997.1GT3. I'll probably not take his scalp unless he completely fluffs it (or catches fire - fingers crossed), however is anyone else attending? Thanks, P
