    I for one don't usually go around sniffing my tires....



    Good deal though. I'm probably going to get those same nittos in that same exact size once I get new rims.
    Let me know how you like em after a while.

    Never got excited about buying tires. That was one of those things I never looked forward too.

    XD Maybe it's just because I can't wait to get rid of these POS tires lol idk.
    I'm mainly excited about having fresh tread under the car and wider tires. Not excited about spending $750 at all but hey it's gotta get done

    Tires are exciting if they are RE-11 Potenzas, Toyo R888, Hoosiers, or something badass. Because I like sticky rubber that actually hooks, and only chodes get excited about a lack of traction. Lack of traction = you spin and go no where.

    At this point anything is better than my Nexens, and I have heard alot of good things from NT555's.Then again I don't need race ready tires, or something that's going to kick up a bunch of road debris at my car
