man i love these michelins. I did a 20 or 30 foot slide to avoid a semi that stalled in the middle of a turn.

you should have seen the smoke.

65-0 in less than half an interstate overpass (2 lanes each way)

great brakes.

oh yeah i downshifted from D-3-2-1 that helped too

very impressive going 65-0 in about 100 feet

Your registry doesn't say what kind of Michelins you have.
Mine are PILOT MXM4. Real quiet and smooth.

Now do you have flat spots on the tires? Someone on the "other" forum did after heavy breaking.:eek:

Glad you're OK.... funny how those near misses make you think about stuff differently (for at least 15 seconds) :D

Exactly, if the breaking was as hard as that, you are lucky you didn`t flat spot them. If the tires are smooth riding the rubber is soft.
