    Can't get any traction!

    I can't seem to hook on the street with my stock ws6 wheels. I put these crappy Falken tires on last summer cause they were cheap and I spent my $$ on my TTMs and GY DSGs. But after all my mods last year, i just spin my tires all day. So, once I burn through the Falkens (which will be very soon), I want to get a nice high performance street tire for my stock wheels. Probably something other than the GY DSGs. Does anyone else had/have problems getting traction? Any suggestions?

    you might also be needing shocks... controlling the wheel movement will increase grip @ all times.
    What's your suspension setup ?

    my sig has my suspension set up. My friend at work told me my tires could be over inflated, deflate them a little until it's just right. Is that true?

    I have BMR lower control arms and the relocation brackets. A BMR rep said to lower the control arms to the lowest holes. That might work...
