Get a nice set of 225 Rivals on an 8 or 9" rim and get on with this ****. 3rd page of the thread still talking about shitty tires.

Hey all you drift fans, I'm ordering tires tomorrow afternoon. You all better decide on a tire. Gotta be from tire rack though. Take into account I'm poor

I'll make a suggestion though. Compare price shipped for a tire from Tirerack to the exact same setup from Discount Tire/America's tire. Last couple times I did that, Discount was cheaper.

Not a huge tire rack fan personally.

It's not free. This is why their prices are the highest.

TireRack choices:

If 205/50 - ZIIs

If 225/45 - Rivals or RS3s



If other than tirerack: 205/50 595 RS-Rs for $340 to your door. Price difference will more than pay for mounting/balancing.

Ummm, no Tirerack is cheap for me because Ican pick up from the wharehouse just outside my city. And NO, it does not cost any more dollars
From Tirerack:
"Would you like the BFGoodrich g-Force Sport COMP-2 tires in your cart mounted and Hunter Road ForceŽ balanced on the Advanti Racing Storm S1 wheels at NO ADDITIONAL CHARGE?"

I thought you were near TR, but wasn't sure.

Since you are, its a no-brainer. Go there and get them.

Btw those BfGs are 304 for the set. Are the Potenza's worth the money?

The point i was making was that TireRack's prices are often not competitive anymore.

They aren't charging you EXTRA, because their prices are higher to begin with. (Even if you pick up sometimes! Been there, done that, it's only a 3 hour drive for me, and i needed tires the next day)

See how that works?


Just order something, jesus. I don't know how many different ways we can answer this question.

Uhhh well I ended up getting Koseis that weigh 11.4 lbs and yokohama s.drives that were discounted. So yes, I got a good deal. IMO Tire rack is still the best by far, customer service BROO!!

wait.......

Hmmmmmmmmm.............

"with any luck you'll hit a pole and go up in a flame of fire while still strapped in the car and the belt buckles get stuck. "
Ok yeah, I'm gonna buy brand new tires just to shred them into oblivion. Right... Well anyway I'm gonna get the drift out of my system, the (chinese) Ohtsu negotiators currently on the car will possibly be used up. Right now they are practically slicks anyways. So I'm just gonna go to an abandoned parking lot and finish them, right before i put the new ones one. I'm planning on getting it out of alignment and then clutch kicking until the tranny explodes. then I'll end up in on of those parking dividers so YUP, drift into a curb. Then, as promised, pictures. Yes?

Your move you forum going " haters" haha. Found this sticker to go along with my JDM as **** decal that's on the front windshield **** Haters JDM Sticker #1274 - $3.60 : Stickernerd, crazy cheap vinyl stickers

Most* of you fools need to have a little fun and enjoy your lives. If you do something no one else likes, who cares. And most of all, be nice to other people even if they are reckless teenagers. But still, I have you fools to thank for my -6 props, whatever that's supposed to mean

They are having fun... at your expense. Don't be so quick to call someone else a fool.
