I just bought mine and am driving it across the country immediately, my first purchase was an Escort Passport IQ.
Excellent choice... I have an Escort PassPort 9500 iX and it has saved my butt many times. When it says "Redlight Camera", it's not wrong, it'll be there and when it tells you way up front, you'll have plenty of time to slow down and watch that "Yellow Light" for sure!
When you see something and don't beep at you, please mark this area so I would know too then... A lot of cities, like now here, are installations for way too many cameras! Be careful.
As for tires? I ordered a 2004 Corvette and it came with F-1 Super car tires (Run-Flats) no spare or jack, and I sold mine in 2009 and the tires were still almost just like new (originals). My 'Vette would kick it in the butt from time to time, and the rubber is much better than it was on my '88 IROC, the rubber was super soft, but now the F-1s last a lot better now. The F-1s are pretty expensive, but if you can afford a Shelby GT500 or "Super Snake", you shouldn't have a money problem with tires, but those tickets plus an insurance rate, then I guess you'd be headed toward the "POOR" side.
2012 Shelby GT500; Ingot Silver; Charcoal/Ebony; SVTPP; Electronics Package; Shelby Car Cover; 20" tires on rear/19" tires on front; Machined aluminum wheels.
5.4 S/C; 32 valve; 6 speed TREMEC transmission, short throw stroke.
The exhaust is quiet inside, but outside...???? You'll know she's there. I roll the windows down so I can hear my "girl" talking to me!
