    Never again. Shitty tires...no traction, terrible wear, etc...

    In the front right now. Use to be on the back. Shitty traction but they are wearing excellent. Prolly 10 track passes and 15,000 miles and will still pass a highway patrol check.

    Man: The Mods you are fighting,
    they are the biggest Men I have ever seen. I
    wouldn't want to fight them!

    Me: That is why no one will remember your name!

    o and i forgot to mention...if your putting down 500+ these tires WILL suck. But if your looking for a tire that you can do a burnout and not have to say to your self. There goes $50 in tread. Then these will do just fine.

    Agreed but they're a great burnout tire.

    I have them on my T/a in 17" and my daily driver F150 in 22" cant beat the price, IMHO.

    I would seriously consider other tires, they grip just as good as my Ecsta MX's that were 275 wide, if that. I have 315's out back and the only reason why they grip OK is that they are wide, if these tires were 275's wide i would've been seriously disappointed. The annoying thing is everytime i race or gun it they spin or chirp bad, i have a few vids on my cardomain were you can easily hear the problem. They are VERY CHEAP no doubt but my next tires will definitly be something else.
