Bridgestone FTW

I like these so far. I'm getting an alignment on Tuesday, but so far these are nicer than my old Coopers.

I haven't driven the car too hard yet. I will test the grip once I get an alignment.

just put a set of these on the 97. they are very good on ice, haven't had the chance on snow yet (still don't have any snow here). cornering is at least twice as good as the road tires I've always used

Yea, it'* been a mild winter ... not that I'm complaining.

I like the non-salted roads. It'll give me a chance to have fun with these.

I had those on my Cutlass, and I LOVED them. The grip is very good on dry roads and in very heavy rain. It would drive through deep puddles and the car stayed perfectly straight. I drove through quite a bit of snow with them too. They weren't too bad actually, but definitely not snow tires.

They're going to be my next set. I have Nationals. Guys, please DO not get the National brand at any cost, good lord they're the cheapest made and it does show in all conditions.

Nice tires btw
