Hey guys I'm new to the mod world and got a few questions so humor me...
1. If I need to a replace a tire do I gotta replace all 4? Cuz I hear the AWD sys. Overcompensates if one tire is diff frm the rest...
2. I got round 300 hp.. Best way start tuning and keep it as original as possible... I need all the help I can get.. THANKS!

Welcome to the forum, yes with awd you have to go in 4's, also with the power try stage 2 plus there are other power adders you can look into to get power

I have absolutely no idea what you are trying to say with number 2. Grammar is needed

No appearance should affect performance. Unless you add stickers, then you can gain serious power

The only way to change the outward appearance to improve performance would be to add the biggest wing you can find & maybe some canards.If you do not plan on doing any of those you are fine.

You can do that, but how often do you order a pizza and throw half in the garbage before eating your first slice?

Shaving tires is a bad idea. A tire that has worn through heat cycling and true road wear is different than one worn by a machine. Even if you can get them to the exact wear pattern they won't continue to wear evenly

Hello and welcome to the Club! :wave:

We kid around a lot here. Words like "cuz" won't get too far. And hard to read grammar does not work well either.

If the tire tread depths are within 2/32" of one another, you'll be fine.
