After experiencing winter with my old tires, I decided to get some new ones. I never realized how crappy they made the ride. I noticed at about 10-20 MPH the car would kind of wiggle back and forth, but I thought that was the cement, not the tires.
Well, with the new Bridgestone Potenza G 009s I bought, it'* like a brand new car
It even quieted the power steering pump lol. I took my thumb and index finger to the sidewalls of my old tires, and they folded together like it was thin cardboard. I'm pretty sure one of those sidewalls would have given out soon.
The best part of it all is, I think I paid $360.00 shipped to my door. I then went to votech (where I went for three years), and the badass teacher was like yeah come on in we'll throw them on there for ya! I graduated only a year ago, but it seemed like a blast to the past. Either way, nice to have hookups with a shop with 6 twin post lifts and a state of the art alignment lift that was just installed less than a year ago.
The kid on the right is a kid I went to school with, he'* the one I actually let touch my car because I trust him. Not sure who the kid is on the left... but all I let him do was take out and put the ABS centercaps back in :P.
I only have like ten miles on the tires, but they BARELY spin even while turning (which is GOOD), and it corners twenty times better. It'* wierd though, old tires used to be semi-floaty. Now if you touch the wheel, you jerk left and right lol.
