We call them "Good for a years" because most of them only last that long before problems start. I hate goodyears, they are heavy and they balance like ****.

Never did like anything from them. They make a pretty good run-flat, you can sit on them and the sidewalls don't budge, but you'll likely never use those unless you get a Vette.

Bridgestones are heavy too, but at least they perform well!

i personally don't think it is half as interesting as the F1 qualifying rounds that have been going on for the past few nights. Wish i wasn't working on my miata today so i could have watched american lemans

in nascar news: whats so different about the "car of tomorrow" and why have they not made a full change to it?

I work for a company that supplies valvetrain components to a majority of the race teams. 95% of the people who work with me dislike NASCAR for one reason or another, but we do have a pool.

Again, Goodyear FWL. Gates FTW (belts, our business).
