Thumbs down I Need a New Clutch, Tires, and Brakes Any Suggestions on What to Get?

I am in need of a new clutch mine is slippin way too much kinda tired of it. Breaks have worn off, tires have no grip. For the tires i need some tires that will be good for winter and summer time, I live in Chicago and the weather sucks! lol so i want something that would be good for all weather conditions. Clutch, right now only have a gm stage 2 kit on my Cobalt nothing to big i guess. Any good clutches, tires, and breaks in particular that i should consider getting? My Cobalt has 67,xxx miles....

Cant help ya with the clutch. But if you put your modding plans down, im sure someone can tell you. I plan on going with Excedy when i upgrade mine. I love my R-1 concept premium blank rotors and Hawk HPS pad combo though. And i have always had seperate winter and summer tires, so i have no experience with all seasons. Guess im not much help. lol

yeah GMPP works well too. Think the exedy stg 2 was around 230+shipping and also holds around the same range of power.

I would just either get a stock clutch or the gmpp clutch depending upon future mods, wich even then, if you go with a bigger blower, you can get away with having the stock clutch. If you plan to go turbo, then think about getting the gmpp clutch or something with better power capacity.

frig sorry man it was actually $330. The stage 1 was around $265.

I bought mine on eBay but looking now I see the prices went up slightly. Just shop around for a bit.

The exedy was WELL worth it though. holy grabbyness lol. I can tell this thing will be awesome for launches once my kit goes on :D
