      Hard to say. Probably just junk tires, since I looked them up and no one had anything good to say about them other than they (supposedly) last a long time. That said, this is the second set of GoodYear tires that car has had, and the second set that has had a problem like that. IIRC the first set went in a similar way but not that severely, so I don't think I'll be buying anything from GoodYear in future. I was surprised to see that they were only five years old since they looked older.

        Any chance of a rub on that tire or they just simply split like that?

            No rubbing, stock wheels, and nearly stock sized tires.

                  This is the right car to K swap and that engine will make really nice cell phone chassis when recycled.

                      Ugh, I got to be that guy and say that's a stupid swap but...

                      the flip side- the motor and transaxle will probably go to keep another 308 on the road..

                      Anyways, this is a good ol' youtube clickbait swap

                        Eh, the best Ks make something like 270hp, are probably sickeningly reliable, and the whole swap probably comes to less than a typical overhaul on the Ferrari engine. All while making people angry, it's perfect.

                            But are you arrabbiato, rabbioso or irrato? Be careful in choosing since one of them also means rusty for some reason.

                              I was kinda pissed at first when I saw he was getting a perfect 308 just to cut it up, but for what he's doing, the K really makes sense. It's a light, efficient, powerful motor with good parts availability, both OEM and aftermarket, its available in transverse layout, and it'll cost a literal fraction of the original 308 V8 while saving weight at the same time, not to mention being easier to work on - the factory engine bay is pretty tight. The only arguments I can think of for keeping the V8 is originality, and maintaining the character of the car, neither of which appear to be a consideration here. I still would prefer if he did this to some basket case 308, but getting the nicest example you can find is generally the cheapest and easiest way to go, and although I don't like it, I can't blame him for doing just that. Lastly, of the 308s available, his example is pretty much the worst - a late model US car. If he were doing this to a vetroresina 308, I'd be super pissed.

                                The real question is, once you have a K swapped 70s/80s Ferrari can you still listen to synthwave, or do you need to switch over to the subtly different Eurobeat to pay respects to the JDM heritage?
