  1. Porsche Tires & Wheels
    I was hoping for some guidance on my tire wear patterns. I've been using RE-71Rs for 5 track days (spread out over 5 months). Aside from the track, the tires have driven about 3k miles going to and from the track. At the track, I monitor the tire pressure between sessions, shooting to keep...

    My 981 CS is a dual duty track/street car. But I've been tracking it a bunch lately. Specs are X73 suspension, Pilot 4S (245/35/20 F, 275/35/20 R), 12mm spacers all-around FRONT: -1.9 (max OEM) [0 toe] REAR: -2.5 (max OEM) [3/32 toe in] Caster unchanged at 8.7 Track tire pressures hot (35 psi)...

  4. 981 Cayman and Boxster Competition
    Hello all! After the first autocross in my 981 BS with PASM in not-freezing temps, I noticed that the outside shoulder of the front wheels were showing more wear than the inside. Attached is a photo of the left-front 20" Pirelli Pzero (the right-front outside shoulder looked identical)...
  5. 981 Cayman and Boxster Competition
    Been tracking the 981 a bit and the front tire shoulder wear is getting out of hand. : ) Have X73 set-up on PS4S tires, and current alignment is -1.75 (F) and -2.25 (R). I don't want to turn this car into a full on track machine, so I'm trying to do the least possible to reduce the premature...
  6. 987 Cayman and Boxster Service and Tech
    I replaced front and rear pads and rotors. All the new pads had the hole drilled in them for wear sensors. The textar pads that came off all had the probe-type wear sensors, but the new Porsche front sensors were a pad-type that looked like they would never even touch the rotor. The new rear...
  7. 981 Cayman and Boxster Competition
    I’m driving three days at COTA next weekend in Blue (novice – instructed) and want opinions on whether my new OE Textar front pads will be upto the back straight challenge. I expect ~130mph before braking, maybe an occasional 140mph if no traffic. I would think my MPSS would be the limiting...

    I use race pads on my 2014 CS (lately Performance Friction 08s) but the shop I use has never been able to get the pad wear sensor cables to work with non-OEM pads. To avoid triggering a warning light, they just zip-tie the sensor cables out of the away. Anybody else have this problem, or...
  9. 987 Cayman and Boxster Modifications
    Hi, I own a 987.2 CS on 19in wheels running Michelin Super Sports in stock sizes. The car is lowered on H&R springs. I have a pretty big tire wear problem. I am going through rear tires in 4,000KM or so, that's about 2,800 miles. I do not track the car. Tire pressures are at the OE...
  10. Porsche Tires & Wheels
    I’m using Michelin PSSs for heavy track use in my 2014 CS. (The PS S was not out at the time.) Someone recommended Bridgestone Potenza RE-71R as having more grip. Any opinions on dry traction as well as on wear, a topic here a few years ago? (I don’t want to go to a second set of wheels and...

    I use rev matching constantly. I have two opposing thoughts on this regarding the wear and tear on the clutch plates etc compared to me manually shifting. On the one hand, the rev matches are perfect on the down shifts. The computer nails it every time. So you would think that there would be...

    Guys, This probably sounds stupid, but being new to both Porsche and convertibles, I figured I'd ask. Is it bad for the soft top to be cycling it several times a day, due to multiple stops during an outing? I know that wear and tear is inevitable and resulting from use, but just wondering how...

    These photos are from a 2011 Cayman with 60K miles. Is this normal or excessive wear? Is there a way to repair or replace this?
  14. 987 Cayman and Boxster Service and Tech
    I'll be replacing front pads and rotors over the next few days on my just-under-50K mile 2010 Boxster base. The pad wear indicator light has not illuminated, but I though I'd go ahead and replace the brake pad wear sensors while I have everything torn down. Do I need to disconnect the battery...

    In April I swapped my 2010 Cayman S for a 2014 S with the X70 suspension. Having done three track days all on clockwise tracks I decided a couple of days ago to swap my tyres side to side to even out the wear, as I used to do on my previous car. My trolley jack won't fit under the new car...

    2015 Cayman S with 6000mi and 8 track days. Rear tires are wearing asymmetrically with outside wear. Is this normal? Could factory alignment be off? Tire press 33

    Is anyone else seeing anything like this? I have 24K miles on mine. Seeing wear on both sides Is this "normal"?
  18. 981 Cayman and Boxster Service and Tech
    Hey, My car goes in for service 2 this spring and I have noticed a tiny bit more wear on my right rear [P Zeros] than the left. This may be due to more hard cornering into left-handers, don't really know, but is it worth having the techs swap left to right while they have it up? I'm nowhere...
  19. Porsche Tires & Wheels
    Had the RR tire off today to patch a screw I picked up, and was surprised at the wear pattern I'm seeing. I would have expected it to be more regular across the width but as you can see center sipes are mostly worn down, inside not worn much at all. This is at 9K miles, no track days, lots of...
