I just got to look at a few at my local tire store, they were pretty sweet looking. large tread blocks, sticky rubber.

Oh and anyone worried about the flames, a 5 sec burnout will get rid of them, im not kidding. I wish I coulda got them!

I know there was talk of a 245/40/15 being released several months back. Did anything come of this?

I'd look really hard at them in a 245/40... not that I won't in a 225 I guess.

I'm happy with my 215/45-16 Ecsta XS. Fastest auto-x street tire on the planet. And as wide as any other 225/45-15.

I'm looking at these really hard for a set of dedicated autox tires. Anyone tried them?
