those are damn good tires. let me tell you, with having my licence for 5 weeks i fishtailed my grandmothers car at 110-115 MPH. the car is still in one piece as i recovered, and i can't help but give some of the credit to the tires.
Well it wasn't the tires fault if you broke a FWD Acura loose like that..



Jim i didn't need to hear that, that'* what size i wanna get next summer!

yeah, but what i'm saying is if the tires wern't as good, they wouldn't have been able to regain traction. that and if i didn't have any clue what to do, i wouldn't be typing this

The only recommendation I can make is the round, rubber ones. The ones with the flat spots give a really rough ride....
