Re: what tires!

Radial T/A? Geez, why not drop down to 14's? Michelins will probably break $200. Check out what Toyo has to offer. And Nitto.

Re: what tires!

If it's just a daily driver, get some regular $100.00 tires. There's no point in buying really expensive ones.

Re: what tires!

Bridgestone G009's. They have a direction tread design, rim gaurd, 50000 mile warranty, 30 day test drive and they cost about 120.99 per tire at Firestone. A little birdy told me that they are having a sale this weekend and that tire will be 20% off...so, about 98 a tire. At least in Texas.....

69 x-11..LS1, 420.88 horse to the tires,750 Holley Ultra DP, Torquer V2, darksides headers, PRC heads, 10.8:1 compression, forged bottom end, 5 speed. 2008 King Ranch F150 4x4.

Do that. Hell, add the road hazard too.

Agreed. That's the tire you need right there.
