Had a pretty bad blowout on the highway today, anybody have a good reccomendation on tires?
Holy f*ck [email protected]!!

That is what I believe we call a catastrophic failure.

Was someone shooting at you or something? Did you ride the guard rail for fun or something?

Wow. Lucky you didn't loose control.

I'd poop my self.

What kind of tires are you thinking about?

All season, summer, drag.

I had really good performance (almost unreal) with summer tires - michilin pilot super sports (rears only).

Expensive as hell. But I put down mid 12's at the track with those on heavy ass 20's only 255/35r20 and a tune (and a fat driver... In 110 plus temps... And humid... And 1/2 tank of gas... Haha. )

I would recommend them again. If you don't deal with much rain, you can probably get away with nt-05 drs

Hankook ventus are a good brand and so are falkens. Not a bad price on them either and they perform better imo against bfgs and goodyears than ive seen. In pepboys we see people drop goodyear for hankooks. Cooper is even a good brand and im talking both front and rears. I got a set of falken 502 rear and hankook v4 no complaints here o er the last 2 years in miami so its definitely summer applications

Nitto 555, why mess around with the others.

I did like you and tried some others, wasted a bunch of money and ended up with Nitto 555, the king tire for our stangs.

Too many reasons to list from my phone.

Loving my falken fk 452. Great summer tire. If you need all season I couldn't help you. Never bought on in my life. Just summers and winters. Oh, my full set of 275 cross section falken were 484$/set which is awesome. Because my 225 section winters are 1300$/set. Never thought that would happen. But it did.

Sumitomo High Performance HTR Z II Tire (275/40-17) 5517766 - Free Shipping!

Those are what I use in the summer, I have 4.10 gears and they hook up great. My dad has nittios on his 12 5.0 and we have decided they are over rated and over priced.
I hate these tires with a burning passion. The compound project down quickly, sidewalls felt like jelly, and they would not grip at all. Fk452 were night and day different. Better turn in. Less wheelspin and better braking.

BF Goodrich G force sport is also a very good tire IMO
I do like the gforce sport a lot too. It's more money. There is a new version called compound 2 which is a little better. Those were great tires on my 96gt.
