    You know all this tire talk got me to thinking? It would be nice to see a break down of how (in theory) certain tires perform...

    Based upon an average stock suspension at 300 hp (highway use only)

    Tire-----------Dry----Wet------Tread depth------60' times-----Mileage
    Normal tire----good---good-------11/32-----------2.8-----------40,000
    g-force KD----GREAT---poor---------9/32----------2.2-----------20,000
    g-force Drag--Great---BAD---------6/32-----------1.7-----------10,000
    F1 GS-D3-----Good---Good--------10/32-----------2.2-----------20,000
    555---------- Good---Good---------9/32-----------2.2-----------20,000
    555R---------GREAT---poor---------6/32-----------1.8------------15,000
    555RII--------GREAT---BAD---------6/32-----------1.8------------15,000
    NT-01--------GREAT---BAD---------6/32-----------1.8------------15,000
    ET Street Rad-SUPER--BAD---------4/32------------1.5------------5,000

    Of course this isn't very scentific and there are lots of varibles. However something like this would be very helpful to others. It's far better information than you would get from the tire companies because it's the end users that would be really contributing to this information, from their own world experience...
