Out with the old, in with the gold! Written by Car Boy Auto Repair on March 14, 2018. Posted in Blog Even though the rain and snow has been relentless, it is never too early to start preparing for this year’s racing season! The Cricket is getting a few new upgrades, starting with freshly painted rims for some new Toyo Proxes R88R. As tires get stiff with age, it is best to get fitted with new ones about every three years and the Cricket is due for a new set this season. If you’re looking for a set that is track-specific, go for something with a little more traction, but anything consistent and reliable is good too! Some of my favorite tires for the track are: BFGood Rich G-Force Rival Bridgestone Potenza Re-71R Dunlop Direzza Zil Star Spec Car Boy Auto Repair We're a well-established mechanic shop in the heart of Richmond, BC, passionate about racing and keeping you safe on the road.
