Baby needs a new set of shoes

I missed the last autocross due to cash flow, gas prices and time. There is a new autocross this weekend. Right now, I expect to make that event.

I need to get a new set of tires for the 911. Looking at the tread, I am losing the side channels for getting water out from under the tread. Interestingly, I am not seeing any cupping, any uneven wear on the tires. This says that I am running at about the right level of air pressure, have a good alignment and my shocks are not worn out as much as I thought. All good things.

One nice thing about owning an old car, even though the tires are "extremely wide" and "high performance" for 1979, they are average passenger car tires for today. So much cheaper than I expected.
