    Well,congrats on the great 60 ft time and 12 second run. I will stick to my bfg's for now. Thanks for the heads up on the coopers. I wish they were Z-rated.

    discounttiredirect.com and tirerack.com are FAR cheaper than that site on every tire that they both sell........distiredir is also free shipping
