Sweet!!! Let me know what you think of them. I like mine MUCH better than the Toyo Proxes I was running on the rear.

I threw them on and took a trip to the local industrial park....on the way up there I was terrorizing the car from a roll. Hooked perfect from a roll, and on all the following shifts.

Once I got to the park, I did a nice 10 second burnout and tried to launch at around 3200 rpm...and blew the tire away through 1st gear.

I'm going to assume on a properly prepped track this will not be the case, stay tuned!

Where did you get the stripes? I would like silver ones.

I think I just put 2 and 2 together through Facebook and the posts in your engine failure thread. I believe was behind you leaving Grand Rapids and that you were the guy giving me a rough time about being a Twins fan, right?

Anyways, it really, really sucks about your car man.
