What brand tires are you using? Been looking for a happy medium between tires like the Conti DW and MPSS and hankook rs3/4 and re71r etc.

Been running Conti DW as my summer street tire. Grip is ok but they are awesome in the wet.

They are floating, they don't seem to have a large slot like AP rings but the mounting holes appear to be slightly oval.

New Side Markers

Swapped out those amber side markers for a black set with an amber bulb.

Mirror Job

Over the weekend I replaced my mirror turn signal indicators with smoked ones, and my mirror housing with carbon fiber.






(the sun was bearing down pretty hard making the smoked tint look a bit weak)

How does the amber turn signal look? The aftermarket eBay smoked ones I got are almost invisible in daylight - at night it's fine but they're less bright than I feel comfortable with.

They are pretty dim in the daylight. Great at night. I didn't get the darkest ones I saw out there because of reviews of the turn signal being nearly invisible during the day - but these still dampen it quite a bit.

And is the light coverage the entire strip or localized? My issue with my current ones besides being a little too dim in daylight is that they illuminate only the edge of the indicator strip instead of the entire clear area.

It does not light the entire strip - it has an LED on the outer edge
