S drives are one of the most well rounded tires ive owned. They're quiet, lasted a while, and the grip was damn decent. Nothing compared to race rubber but quite good considering their life.

I need to get some daily tires for the mustang (these factory all seasons are driving me crazy), I'm thinking of trying the s drives again. Too bad they're like 180 a pop...

I run 205/50/15 kumho xs's on 15 by 8 konig wideopen's 20 mm backspace.fit is good and looks great. 1990 with rolled and stretched fenders. May have room for nines. .

Going to try my buddies 15 by 9 6ul's with 225/45/15' r1r's to see if they fit. I have difusers on the rocker panels.

Currently this set up looks amazing and has alot of extra clearence.

Good grip but likes heat in tire to really hook up. Not rated as very easy to drive in heavy rain. Got only 1000 miles on this set up so far. I'm a rim *****. Lots of wierd rims some rare.

100% true but the Kumho XS is still better and cheaper.

RS3 wear out a whole lot quicker. 200 vs 140 threadwear is a big difference.
