  1. I know I'm jumping around on things that I'm not in need for right now, but tires...again....I love these up front on my Dad's GT500. 255-45-R18. They hug the wheel with that lip so they do NOT looked stretched at all. Or I also found a 255-40R18.

    Think they would clear when I turn?

    Goodyear
    Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar

  2. Wow, those supercar tires are $300 a piece. Screw that!

    FWIW, I love the look of the KDWs.
     
  3. I'm a big fan of BFG's. I run the g force sports on my cars but would love to get the KDW2's. A couple of my buddies have the KDW's on their cars and they love them! I also put them on a t bird i restored. They are a sick looking tire
     
  4. I run G Force Sports, too. Great sticky street tire, and cheap enough that you don't feel bad about hazing them every once in a while. :nice:
     
  5. Yeah thats about the cost of my R6's and i dont EVER want to haze them lol
     
  6. Dunlop Direzza Z1 star spec, hands down one nasty tire for the $$. recent top place holder in a few tire tests, gobbs of grip and look good too.

    HUGE THANKS to Chrome_Rust for the 1993 Cobra OEM rear bumper!!!:nice: He met me half way today and hooked me up. He gave me a smokin deal that I couldn't refuse!

    I know if looks rough, but it just needs stripping, primer and paint. It's straight.
