Well my Shelby is 10 years old and has about 26,000 miles on the tires. I think it is time to buy new ones. First because they are old and second because it seems they have gotten  very noisy. I bought the car new and they have been getting worse. What kind of tires has anyon bought to replace the original tires. Rick Gardner

Not any louder than the exhaust. No I think they are quite. If you need a price I know a guy in Lombard.

I vote for the Continental Extreme Contact DW Tuned I got last year.  I don't know if these are still available, however they are smooth, quiet and grip very well.
