And all you have to so is press the gas down a tad in the rain to make it fishtail. I'll leave the traction control off for dry days like I usually do. Good day sir

Most of us don't drive the car daily. I live in a dorm and work from my computer, so I pick and choose when I drive. I pretty much just go out and have fun. And 260bhp from a 2v really is not that much. I know a guy with an LS3 Corvette who drifts it regularly.

The summis are ok..I can break them loose fairly easily with my stock 5.0. But they do last long! Depends if I want to hook or something to last long for DD.

I DD on my summis & they work fine. If u drive around trying to break them loose they will but if ur just driving normal/slightly spirited u'll be fine! That being said I wanna use these already & try out the MT street comps! Haha.

No, Little Caesar's or even the junk that is Dominos is better than Papa Johns. Around here, there are hardly any of the Papa/Domino's/etc... because of all the legit Pizzerias.

What the hell were we even talking about? Tires? Again, Sumis and Nittos are both meh. Sumis are good for longevity but have fun spinning into 3rd. Nittos hook up OK but run narrow as fuk so you have to ballpark what you are getting sizewise and they are overpriced and there are better options.

You have:

Mickey Thompson Sport Comps
Continental Extreme Contacts
BFG TA/KDW/Comps

All are far superior choices to Nitto. From what I am hearing, the Mickeys are game changers at this price point. I got BFGs because I am a cheap bastard but they still hook up and grip 100x better than the Nittos not to mention the ride is better.

Lol I don't eat any of them unless someone else buys and says I don't have to pay anything. Surprisingly, Costco pizza is not half bad. Its sort of along the lines of a Papa John's but not as ****ty.

And yes I rule on tires except selecting the right width for my own car rofl. I'm going to be ordering new rims tonight and putting up the 03 stylez ones for sale most likely. And to +1 the BFGs I lurve BFG, if you want a great tire on a budget, this is it. If you just need rubber and don't give a **** about performance, then yeah get Sumis.

Lmao. Yea I costco pizza is pretty good!
That sucks! Your tires are too wide for the wheels? I got the sumis cus I wanted to throw my wheels on already & didn't wanna save up more for better more expensive tires! Plus back then I had the 3.7 so I was ok with these. But when these go I wanna get either the BFGs or the MT street comps!

No, I had the BFG specs for the front 235/45/18s at 9.1" and 275/40/18s at almost 11". The front 18x9s have a good 1/4" of lip out past the sidewall and the 18x10.5s are about flush but its not great... meh... just an excuse to get a new set of deep dish Bullitts that aren't chrome at 18x8/18x10 which will match my tires perfectly.

I justify things instead of making excuses lol
Like the rims/tires I am going to put on...
Again stayed in this weekend, obviously haven't been driving so saved on gas
so all that money I saved should help make buying them not hurt so much lol

If I was American I would save like 400 dollars in shipping and it would be easy to just buy anything whenever. few hundred here few hundred there.. no shipping HAH id be all teeth

The KDW2s are being discontinued so you can get a hell of a deal on them right now.

The Comp 2s are still way cheaper and from my recent experience, they rock. KDWs are great but overpriced vs other BFG stuff and then you have the Mickeys...
