Cheapo Cooper tires. They are GREAT in the winter, but get crappy traction when I want to have fun.

I can burn those things till there'* no rubber left.

Falken Ziex ZE-512 P225-60/R16 V-rated

35k+miles on two cars and the fronts are starting to get down on the wear bars a little, need to rotate before real winter.

I can spin em, and I can smoke em, but when I feel like leaving in a hurry, they hook up and go. Terrific road-handling, too. When I first bought the Bonnie, it was a skidding, sliding mess on Eagles. Put the Falkens on, went for a drive, realized I was doing 80mph on a road that used to scare the crap out of me and hadn't realized it!
