I said before to others, I have Kumho's on my they hook up nice awesome in the rain!! I got them from tire rack.com cheap look at the customer reviews on them. I only have 5000 on them but beat them and still alot of meat.

Best bang for your buck = Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercars

 

If you have some extra dough to drop, I really like the Nitto NT555's on my 66.

Good luck

I just installed Nitto 555's- 255/45/18 front and 285/40/18 back. Very sticky, great for corners, not so great for burn outs, but they look great on Razors. :shift:

Falken FK452's are great if you're looking to save money. They aren't top of the line, but you get what you pay for. And for 125-145 each they're great if your doing a lot of driving and just need some sort of all purpose tire.

I've got a GT 500 and they come stock with 285/40 Good Year F-1 super cars (in rear) and they DO NOT provide good traction on launches. My stock GT 500 was dyno'd w/412 rwhp and 420 lbs of torque, so if you are making close to that or more, get something else.

Agreed. At 508 RWHP, the F1's are certainly lacking traction for my SGT as well. However, compared to the stock BFG's they are like a Hoosier R6!

For the money ($130-$150) you can't beat them. If you have the cash ($1800/set), go with the Toyo RA1.

I have the Nitto 555's and they have been great so far.

 

Bought them from Discount Tire, the service is first class in my opinion.

Ken when did you put the Nitto's on? Are they the NT05?

I was just joshin.

I have the NT555's on my fastback and they are renown for burning through the tread pretty quickly.

Just a friendly jab. :)
