    i got the good year f1 ds-g3 275's all around my SS and they are Very nice.

    Hard tire but work awesome for rain, have good dry traction. for all around tire they look sexy and work very nice.

    i know its not in the list but worth a look.

    Get the Goodyears

    Yeah the Goodyears are expensive but a proud American tire company with quality tires for your ride. You don't want Japanese stuff on an American muscle car. That's just plain wrong no matter how much money you save. There is a reason for it too. You get what you pay for!

    Good years are too much money unless you are just loaded. Can't really think of a reason to run them. A lot better tires out there for less money. Just my .02

    Goodyears are the way to go. The F1 GS D-3 are a little expensive but well worth the money. Great traction wet and dry weather, but they suck in snow. Of the one's you have listed go with the KDW. There a good all-round tire.

    i got my tires from tirerack and the were under 200 per tire.

    worth it in my mind, the tire affects the way the car handles!

    GS-D3's rock! Make sure you run atleast 35psi or they are to soft in the corners. You can corner in the wet without spinning out! I heard the KDW's wear out fast, but are good tires. Kumho's suck...
