If you're in a stock class, your car should remain STOCK! If you have to get
new tires, that are in any way, shape, or form better than the oem tires,
you move up a class. You can, however, get new tires with the same size, and
ratings as the OEM tires and still remain in teh stock class, thus fixing
the RE71 issue.
What's so hard about that? I don't put up a big fuss when I have to move up
a class and I would look upon anyone who did as childish. It's just a race.
