    New Tires, muffler and cutout......

    Well my new tires came in yesterday, I got them put on as well as my magnaflow muffler and a cutout. I really like these tires, so far they hook well, I am pretty much stock besides the aforementioned exhaust pieces, ported TB, and a CAI. They spin very little, from a "street light launch". I would imagine they will hook well at the track. This is my second set of falkens and I would definitely recommend these tires. The price isn't too bad either, compared to others. I think Falken is a sub of sumitomo tires. My muffler is very mild, it gets louder under acceleration but its not obnoxious, I am happy with it. The cutout is "somewhat quiet" at idle but is loud at any other rpm. A little raspy down low but sounds great at WOT. I have already purchased my 3:73's about a month ago, they are going in pretty soon. The car feels better but its probably because I had bald tires that would spin easily and now I just hook n go.....

    Give Discount Tire On-Line a try. Not sure of your budget, But I picked up a set of 4 BFG KDWS for $144 each this afternoon in Orlando. Night and Day difference over the OEM Eagles that were on it. Like driving a different car.

    My .02 cents worth
