Turbo tires

It's time for new tires, just blew through my azenis. Debating on getting the eagle gt's for the street. What are you riding on the street, not track?

i have 225/40r18's and they have been great, as far as star specs they arent ideal because of the sidewall stiffness.

Yeah I recommend 235/40/17 on stock rims if you don't have a wider set. I have this setup and it works great.

yea i will def buy them in the future..

they are so predictable, hold traction amazing in straight line and while cornering.

amazing in the rain too which surprised me, and in the cold them warm up nicely.

they were so good it made me realize how far behind the suspension was and couldnt keep up with the tires under hard turns
