Goodyear Comp T/A makes a sweet tire if you want to stck to the Goods! I used a 235/45 on my 18s and acheived the best look! They just busted my pocket book, so I went with some Dunlop 9000s! 45s worked fine with no rub on my 97, the 50s rubbed like crazy!

I've been told I need some new tires but I think I can still wait a little while. I just have to remember not to do 80mph any more.

Most Z rated tires are quick to wear.....with that said you should still get 50k as long as your doing burn outs all over the place.

Those firestones look like my tires (but are probably better) than the fedrals I'm running, my tires are loud and thats why I didnt reccomend them to you sooner as you stated you wanted a quiet ride?

My brother is driving Falken Zeix'* on his Avenger and they've got incredible grip, as good or better than Pirelli P-Zero Neroes, way better in rain and snow, for $60/tire!

I'm looking at these for my next set of rubber
