Glad to hear that. Sounds like the good choice then. You think it would be ok just to run them in the rear only?

Look into those an the star specs, both are really good tires for anything you want to do. Minus drive in the winter which you do not do anyway

Pretty sure they are a little cheaper than the r888- those are r-comps, they wont last long on the street

Those are 315/tire and I don't see 275-30-19. They only have 175-35-19. The other ones they still at tire rack for like 175 each that you first suggested.

I am registered for Saturday as is my buddy dave and a couple others. Really looking forward to some of these really high hp cars running. Hopefully AMS can get down the track without blowing up though which they apparently have a reputation of sorts for doing.

Not when you advertise the "reliability" that they do with the packages and charge 70k lol

Still amazingly badass cars though
