Seems like there would be a club member near the border you could have shipped to? Would save some bucks for a little ride.

Looks good, like the tread pattern. Get us a pics after the install. Would like to see how the wider tire looks if you are still going with the 255/50'*.

Having gotten a set of 01 Swoopies..I needed sneakers. Found the Pirellii Pzero Neros good price and great traction so far.

Very good price.
The only complaint I have with those Federal tires is THEY ARE NOISY on the highway.
Not a problem as long as you have 12" subs.

My new tyres are installed !
i can only tell one word........................HUGE!!!!


When i enter the car in the garage they were all there and say,"OOhhh man, that will never fit on your wheel, it will touch the fender!!"

I told them to install the tyres, i wasnt sure at this point.....
Look by yourself how my 235 look ,lke tiny civic tyres:



After the install i parked my car outside to go pay my bill, and i was like... What ive done! Its too big!!!
But after looking at her more and more, they are awesome!! i love them! look better in real tought.


When you see the car on a certain angle, it look very huge. But it really give it a look !
Cant wait to see the traction!! its raining

Heres some other shot:


Will take more shot when she will be clean.

The ride is more stable, and smoother, but i can feel the road better.
And they are less noisy than my old goodyear RS-A.
