Firestone tires are NOT normal stock at sears and at mine we wont even order them, we just simply dont deal with firestone anymore and we barely deal with bridgestone and even then its limited at best, your best bet for them is to go to an actual firestone dealer, the price will be better anyway.

SSC wheels are garbage, run and run fast. they bend easy and they loose their coating and corrode very easy.
I think I've already decided agenst the firehawks and I'm going with the fuxion tires. About $20 each less, and 17" instead of 16" Now I need to choose a wheel. Thanks for the warning about those wheels. I will keep looking, that'* to bad, the price seemed good.

Looks like a have a line on a set of 17" swoops. But I think they are 17x7. The tires I want are 245/45/17 and recomended wheel width is 7.5-9. Will these tires be OK on a wheel that'* half an inch narrow? Or are the swoops we see on some members cars 7.5 wide?
