New tires on order ; )

Well guys...I didn't like some of the opinions on the Goodyear Eagle F1 D3s so I am going to sit on those for a while.

Instead these will be going on the FR500s Monday



295/35-18s in the rear
255/40-18s up front

Can't wait to get them on. I have an appointment at NTB at 7 in the morning to drop it off

Nothing beats sticky rubber...

Except new sticky rubber. Make sure you wear the mold release crap off before utilizing the full stickyness.

Haha...these tires will rarely be spun as much as they were. Maybe a few spins to get the slick off.

Hopefully these will launch better than my current set up.

Damn good tire. I've never really heard anyone say something bad about the G-Force's.

Nice choice. I too have heard poor ratings on the Goodyears.

Actually, other than the MTRs, I havent heard of many good Goodyear ratings/reviews.

Just as a warning.. I hope you like retardedly loud tires.. especially when they start to wear.

I think the BFGs have the best aggressive look out there but the traction and noise is sub par vs its competitors.

As you should have with a Stang

I just was not impressed with the dry traction vs the Toyo T1R, although they did handle better than the Eagle F1-D3 and the Nitto 555R

Yea...not exactly worried about the noise of the tire. Won't be able to hear it over the exhaust/radio. I read that they are a little loud but don't really care. I didn't buy them to ride like a Caddy.
