    Same tires I bought a few months ago for my Impala. No complaints. They handle great in the snow too.
    It's on jackstands.

    Hmm....I wonder if they will be better than the stock tires I have on my TA now. After all, they are only 12 years old...
    They don't do discounts

    Hell yeah. Nothing like new quality rubber for our F-bodies!

    They did for me. Wasn't much - $25 bucks - but that's half the mounting/balancing cost right there.

    It's listed on my invoice as "Regional Instant Rebate".

    I would use them again in a heartbeat (No Chevrolet reference intended...). You might need to be over 40 to get that one...

    I also got the same discount at Discount Tire - $25 off on top of their best sale price...and all I did was say "Is that really the best you can do for me?"

    Looks like I'm going to the drag strip tomorrow, a real one with a full 1/4 mile. Hope to see some good launches with the tires, they're great for cornering.

    Whoops, wouldn't want to upgrade the factory tires with anything more modern, would we?
    (lol, some may know who I'm referring to)

    i need new tires bad. mine are old ass BF Goodrich KDW's from 2004. they dont grip for shit.

    i've been thinking about getting the Continetal ExtremeContact DWS - or whaterver the all season one were.

    you guys with the Conti"s - how do you like them? for the price they look pretty good.

    we put a set of the Continental ProContact Eco something or other on my wifes 2006 Malibu Maxx SS and they are really nice. had them on for about 8,000 miles in about 2.5 years and they still look great

    I'm interested to see hoe they do, I've had my eye on these tires but mine still have a lot of life left in them.

    So, the tires hooked great. My first trip on the strip, I didn't haze them before the starting line, and I thought I would spin, but no.

    First run, a 2.138 60 ft with an ET of 13.326 @ 105.47, car bogged a bit off the line since the tires bit so well and I wasn't real aggresive with my launch.
    Second, I hit it harder, and still no spin off the line, and she hooked to a 2.037 60 ft with a 13.076 @ 106.82
    Third run was a 1.98 60 ft, felt great, then I shifted to 5th instead of 3rd, dammit, so no 12 second pass.
    Last run was a 2.032 60 and ran a 13.030 @ 108.19

    So, very happy with the tires, I highly recommend them.

    For those people considering any performance tire, don't get an all season tire. You really don't drive your cool muscle car in the winter, do you?????
    Get something that sticks on launch, corners great, and may have some decent wet traction, but don't buy an all season tire, too many compromises in that type tire for the F-bodies, or LSx cars in general.

    Also saw a ZL1 Camaro tonight, it was running 12.70s @ 112-113. Dissapointed with that, I bet. He had no traction at the line, like a 2.3 60 ft.
    And a 392 Challenger, it ran 12.7 at 111.5, my bosses GT-R ran 11.19 @ 119 and my friends 462 Pontiac powered 1976 Trans Am ran some 12.30s @ 111.

    Hell yeah. Anytime driving at the strip is fun, 'specially when the 10 bolt comes home intact. You bet I worried some with the traction tonite.
    She's been in the 12s before, and would've on that 1.98 launch, but oh well. I know with my trap speeds it's an easy 12 sec car.
    My friends 68 400 Firebird runs 13.3 at only 100 MPH. Great launch, but no top end.

    Concrete garage floor, and it rain floods the floor,which makes me sweep it. So, the marks go away quickly, dammit.
