Go to your local firestone dealer and take a look at the wideoval. It is a better looking tire then the Nitto, comes with a better warranty and the price will be better. they even come with a 30 day test drive!!!!!!!!!! Can't beat that with a stick and a piece of bacon! I see that you are in the USAF, your base should sale these tiresat the auto center! Any questions, contact me

Tim Smith put together a group purchase aover at The GP was thru I just purchased a set of Boyd Coddington wheels with Nitto 555 for a great price. Call and talk to howard and tell him you are interested in the GP from pro touring. They do not list Nitto at ther website, but can get them. Howard is a super nice guy.Tell him John from Montana sent you.
