    Well its time for new tires....im looking for like 245 or 255 50/16s for the rear..

    I need a good summer tire with good traction...i was thinking about bf goodrich g sports..which tires should I get...not looking to spend ike 200 a tire either..haha

    I think im going with fuzion zri tires..they are onyl 75 bucks for the size i need and are getting amazing reviews by everyone.

    So when you say that..they get good traction?...cause im looking to cut my 60 time from the 2.25...to atleast a 2.1...the tires I have now are completely bald and get absolutely no traction. Will these tires grip if I slam it ?...how good are they?..comparable to bf goodrich kdw?

    i work for firestone tires (we carry the fusion line) and i have heard really good things about the ZRIs, they supposedly hook up very well for being a non-streeet slick. they also look mean as hell too! if you want to drive to lawrence, kansas i can hook you up with 20% discount! haha

    we are kinda in the same situation i guess, I'm a junior working about 15 hours a week and want new wheels but am not every going to be able to afford some of them. :-[ 18x315s at $270 a piece is a joke for me.

    I just got some new tires yesterday. I got the BFG G-Force sports.
    They ride nice and handle real well. So far I like them better than the Nitto's I had before.

    And for the $$$$ I cant complain.
