    ramrod, i switched from runflats to the C6ZO6 goodyear supercars for performance, weight reduction and handling, not because i was trying to save a measly 500 bucks per set of tires which goes right back into the AAA roadside membership (that I bought as a result of my tire type switch) and (most likely) a ZO6 tire repair patch kit that Im trying to figure out where to buy. Do you have runflats or non runflats? Im just asking for advice; what would you do if you got a flat tire, or are u simply suggesting I tow it to get it patched? What about in the middle of the night or on a long drive (eg} more than 100 miles from your house)? (VEGAS?)
    Catch what i mean? -Thanks

    BFG Drag Radials Slicks ! I suffer the consequence I guess. Besides 600 rwhp car is not your source of a everyday driver! At least the way mine is setup. I guess I never looked at it at your perspective bro. I'm sorry. I would call up a dealer ship and incorperate part # 9593935, OR #2273202. The most expensive is over 600, and the second is below 200 in price.

    Tirerack has what appear to be some nice repair kits reasonably priced.

    I was lucky, but around mid 400 hp depending on the right tire I have seen them give up! I went with a stage 3 diff with trans, and diff cooler so my a$$ is in check! Depends though some of them don't give out at all. It's a fifty fifty..
