not sure, go to tirerack.com and discount tire direct.com and do a price quote as all as read reviews on those tires. See how they stack up review wise to other tires in their range/price

its like 100 dollars more off of tire rack, pluss with my uncle i get free mount and ballance and ensurance that they wont damage my new rims. so i believe im gonna buy them. and the reviews on the site seem reassuring also, everyone seemd to be happy with their purchase.

If you're just using them for street/daily driving duty then they are fine, alright tires...you really don't need an aggressive tire for a daily driver, lightly modded car...

If you're making substantial power or are using the car for regular track, autox, or roadcourse duty, then they are useless...

I have these tires on my 2004 v6. Not too much grip from a dead stop, but their cornering and braking is amazing. Btw, I paid ~$550 installed for 225/55 16s
