The BFs are an excellent tire. I've had them on a couple of Corvettes. Them give good traction on dry pavement and are excellent in the rain. But if you want an excellent Z rated tire that is an excellent buy Check out Pep boys Z rated tires A set of 22545zr17s fronts and 27540zr17 for the rear are just $519. I know people frown on Pep boys but the tire is made by Cooper tires, it has a good tread design, and what the hay what are we gonna do anyway smoke them off so save a few hundred and don't feel guilty about smoking them tires.
