Default New Rubber



Dont you love it when the guy in the brown truck leaves you a set of tires at the front door?







Rated to 149MPH (Willwren type speeds)

2nd best rated high performance at TireRack.

http://www.tirerack.com/tires/survey....jsp?type=HPAS

My current tires are down to 1/32 according to the tire place.

Update on performance will follow.

He has a 94' 88 which only came with 2.84 gearing, no 3.06 available. ONLY, if he has the LSS package. My dad'* 93' has intake and won't burn even a squeak of rubbar.

Them are some nice looking tires, the tread pattern looks to be designed quite nicely for griping the road for cornering and wet traction. Nice buy!
