Hey Shadd.....I have a little secret.



Les Schwab here is absolutely dumbfounded as to why my tires on the Zilla don't make the mileage warranty.

My last two sets were pro-rated.

My BFs are almost slicks now...
I need something V rated or Z rated.

V and Z will typically wear out quicker than H.

Shadd... when you got there you mentioned the tires were basically brand new. We watched you get street tires heated enough to make them sticky when usually they slick up with heat.

Most people don't have to rotate their tires for the 2nd day at the track. Personally..I was surprised you had enough rubber to drive home on.

Shad, I have a picture of STS holding a clump of shredded rubber from your car on day 2 at the track

The way you were smoking them up at WCBF I thought they were old shoes you were burning off because you wanted some new boots.
