I am going to have to buy tires.. opinions

I am pretty sure I am going to go back with 275/40/17 yokahoma avs es100s but.. if anyone has another tire or combo I should look into let me know.

I have thought about doing DRs bout back but i dont feel like replacing them every year. My rims are 17x9 all around so I cant stagger them out back as well.

Just go with the same tires for now and later on when you don't have to drive it every day, get wider wheels out back with some DRs.

Just be warned that if you do get Nittos... they're not really all that much better than your average street tire until you warm them up. If I ever put drag radials on a car again, it'll be either BFGs or Mickey Thompsons. The Nittos just aren't sticky enough.

Get the Nitto 555s all the way around. You don't really need DR's in your stock config, plus you don't drive the hell out of the car so traction shouldn't be a serious issue for you.

On a side note, I have had my DR's for over a year (about 5k miles) and I have plenty of tread left even though I drive it like I stole it.

I just got a pair of the Mickey Thompson ET Street Radials. When my extra wheels get here and I get 'em mounted, I'll let you know how they do

Re: I am going to have to buy tires.. opinions

I dont have traction currently at all, ask ben, 2500 rpms shifting into second gear = no traction. I want another set of rims to mount some nicer tires on, I may wait on DRs or what not until I dont have to drive the car every day (aka when I find a job near huntsville)

Re: I am going to have to buy tires.. opinions

I would wait on them. Like I said, you'll have the same problem with Nittos. My car would smoke them all the way through 2nd. They really don't start to stick until you heat them up (and even then not as well as you would think they should).

I'd wait and get the BFGs if I were you. My car actually hooked with them and they were only 235s... Plus I still had 4.10s while I had them on which makes them even more impressive.
