Re: Suggestions On Tires (please Help)

Go to www.tirerack.com and search your size. You can refine your search by picking what type of tire you want such as "ultra high performance" / "high performance" / "all season high performance". You can look at the prices and when you find a tire that's priced "right" for you read the reviews. This should help you decide what fits your needs. Hope this helps. By the way welcome to the site. FYI this is mostly 1st generation orientated.

Ditto, THE TIRE RACK!!

And also check Walmart out too for inexpensive tires. Their Douglas brand..

Re: Suggestions On Tires (please Help)

I'd recommend getting Kumho's, they are the best priced tire yet have great handling, traction, treadwear rating, temperature rating.
I run them on my 2003 Infiniti G35 and my 69 Camaro.
Kumho ECSTA SPT
(Ultra High Performance Summer) 275/40ZR17
$117

Kumho ECSTA ASX
(Ultra High Performance All-Season) 274/40ZR17
$115


You get about 25% more life out of the all season, but you would get a little better traction out of the SPT. I run the SPT on my 69 Camaro

These are available from Tirerack and many local tire shops too

1969 Camaro - GM 2003 Electron Blue
Beck Racing 383 cu in 465HP Engine - Sean Murphy Inductions Stage 2 Quadrajet
TCI Streetfighter 350 - 3.73:1 Posi 10 Bolt Rear - 12.6 sec qtr mile

I like tire rack, but also just found that I like Discount Tires Direct more. No tax, free shipping.

1968 that started life and a 6 banger with a PG. Now it's a 350 with a TKO600, Moser 12 bolt, Speedtech LCA/UCA, ATS Tall Spindles, Hotchkis Springs, Forgeline ZX3P, C5 (Kore3) brakes with other cool stuff from Ron Davis, Vintage Air and soon to be Terminator EFI.

I'm a big fan of the BFG G-force-T/A KDWS for the street if you ever have to drive in the rain. These are what I run on my daily driver.
