Re: Rim choice

I love my bullets, but make sure you get the staggered set up in the rear if you do. Im currently upgrading to Staggered Chrome Saleen Style Wheel & Sumitomo Tire Kit from American muscle.

Re: Rim choice

If you want some amazing wheels and don't mind spending a little extra (a lot actually) check out Asanti.

Just because their an American brand doesn't make them American made. Goodyear has factories in Japan, china and Europe. They also sold licenses to companies in south america and the phillipines so that they get the brand name but produce their own product. Ya need to evolve, I like to choose the best tires not a brand, sorry but everything 'made in America' doesn't mean it is from America. A lot of the parts on your car were made in Japan but than shipped to America to get that sticker 'made in America' it really doesn't matter, you should choose what makes your car run to its peak performance

And I've ran Goodyears and now use Nittos, not saying they are the best but I've gotten a lot more out of my Nitto's than the Goodyears. I kinda lost faith in that company when they started selling off license agreements to foreign companies and than came all of their recalls

Re: Rim choice

The way i see it, is as long as the tires keep me out of the ditch their doing a good job. I have had Nitto tires in the past and loved them!

LMAO!!! Why don't you read, as I said it may be an 'American brand' but it's made in other countries. How is that different from buying a foreign brand?

Oh and Nitto tire North America was founded in 1999
