I just realized that it was my tuner tires that were making my Infernus turn so stiffly through high speed turns when not braking. (Full hard left or right on the analog stick, and the car would barely make like a 45 degree turn without slowing down at high speeds.)
I was just messing around with different tire looks in LS customs, and I wanted to see how a certain set of muscle tires would look in the light, so I drove outside. Much to my surprise, suddenly, I was able to whip right around corners that were previously giving me trouble prior to the installation of the muscle tires. I've been driving this Infernus non stop since I got it a couple of days ago with my stimulus money, so it was pretty easy to tell a difference in its handling.
Bearing that in mind, what would be the best choice in tire, for high speed cornering? Like, going through 45-90 degree wide turns, at around top speed. (Like freeway turn offs, and the various corners laid around the 4 lane roads. *see picture below) Something that will give my car, well, "give." Tires that will allow me to swing around corners, without loosing control, and pulling a 1080.
I'm assuming that tuner tires are very gripy, so I'd need something with less grip, but something that won't loose complete control when I lean in to a turn. Slowing down n' hand braking and all that is fun, sure, but it often means I loose a race against my compatriots because the other cars in the race don't have to slow down for every turn.
