Default WTB: 15" summer tires

Looking for a good deal on some extreme ultra extra uber performance summer tires in 205/50/15. Anything that would let me switch to my Pro Race One's from my current daisy/"Le Mans" combo would be great.

Yeah, picked em up from David Hedderick last week, kinda what started the marital fallout.

Getting the tires mounted tomorrow.

I can finally laugh at all the poor bastards still running daisies. Good grief I WILL NOT miss those wheels.

I keep telling myself that the daisy's are fine for now, since I'm still running on the shitty Tokico suspension and no boost. But holy smokes they look horrible. Like a man standing with his feet together, know what I mean?

Only great thing about daisies besides a structurally great lightweight design is that you never have to feel bad about painting them...unless you spend more than an hour doing so.

Boost will make you realize how incredibly inadequate 185mm is -that's what she said-.

Wednesday I'll tell you how much better another inch of grip is too.

If you're not going turbo anytime soon I'd let your AS tires take the winter beating. I'm only bolting mine on now because I just CAN'T stand it anymore, and actually had a nice pucker moment at 70+mph in the rain the other day.
