    Good looking tires for cheap. They are ok traction wise, I would rate them slightly better than sumitomos.

    Pretty good tires. Got my rears for $100 a piece. Theyre worth the price.

    Would that be summitomo htzr's by chance??? Im assuming you have tried them both. My summitomos are getting bad and was unsure of what better tire to try, as they seem to hook really good for me. I may give the raptors a try.

    Yessir. I've had Sumitomo HTRZs, HTRZ IIs and Riken Raptors. The Raptors were my favorite by far, then the HTRZs followed by the HTRZ IIs. None of them are phenomenal traction wise though. On my mostly stock LT1 car the Raptors I could get to hook rolling into it pretty hard in 1st gear. The other two I had to pedal in 1st gear, and just a touch of 2nd.
