I was going to get those once my current tires were completely gone... Dick. Haha well I will be very curious to see how well they work on your car.

BTW, your more than welcome to try out my RS/Re-11's on your car if you want an idea of what those sort of tires feel like, but I have a feeling with how unevenly worn they are it may make it feel even more different.

Also, what tires did you have before?

They were Falken Ziex ze-512. I thought they were pretty grippy, just looked gay, being 195's. I'm sure you remember raging on ramps with me.
When I first got my wheels (with those tires already mounted, used) I hit some corners and remember feeling my face being altered by the g-force. hahaha. Of coarse I was coming from all seasons on bottle caps. haha.

Figured I would post this here:
BFGoodrich g-Force Rival — NOLA Motorsports Park


And just an fyi, Andy Hollis is pretty much the guy that knows everything and anything about this sort of tire, he's the one that does most/all of the tire testing for Grassroots Motorsports.

I saw you post this on fb. I figured you'd post it here too.
I'm planning on picking them up this weekend. You're welcome to come if you want to.
Should I buy the tires in advance? I'm sure they'll have them when I get there, but just to be sure?

I was very tempted to get those for my car.... decided that I just drive too much on a daily basis so they'd burn up fast.

I guess I need a second set of wheels/tires... lol!

In the summer, I ride my bike to work most of the time, so my car sits a lot. Since I've got snow tires for the winter, I figure I can get away with these.

Nick, yeah planning on Saturday. I'm gonna want to go in the morning. Idk. 9am or so. I know that's like 4 hours before you normally get up. -XD-

Keep in mind they are an hour behind us. If you wanted to wait until 8 I'd be game, not getting up any earlier than that lol.

Ah! Didn't think of that time change thing.
Meh. You need the beauty sleep.
If I end up leaving later than I want to, I'll give you a wakeup call, but chances are I'll be there and back before you're up. haha.
