I like my Fuzion ZRIs, They didn't break the bank either. What size did you want to get? All 4 the same so you rotate them? If so 265/35/18s will work.

Dollarbill, How are your Fuzion ZRIs at the track.

Thanks

I agree on the F1 GS-D3's. They're not all that great when you first start moving, but once you get the slightest bit of heat in them, they can't be beat for grip, except by a drag radial.

I've cut 3 2.0 60' in a row one night. I can always get a 2.1, pretty good. In cold weather they kinda suck though. They need a good burn out to hook.

If you all are serious about times in the 1/4 or 1/8th, you would skip the 18" rims and low profile tires altogether. To get the best grip possible, you need a 15", with D/R's. Don't get me wrong, I love the look of some short tires with some big a$$ chrome rims, but I put all this $$$ into my car for speed, why not get the most out of it!


BTW, $250 a tire, I would think you had your pick of the litter at that price!

Yup, I have them on my car right now. When they are cold they spin really easily (and I have 315's on the back:eyebulge: ). But once I drive them for a little while and they get the slightest bit of heat in them; they are unstopable. Amazing grip. I also have never come across a tire that is better in the rain. They grip just as good in the rain as they do in completely dry conditions. Another thing I have to praise them for is their life. For a high-performance tire, these things are lasting a loooooooooooong time; and I put them through hell and back and I still have thousands and thousands of miles left on them. That makes me happy since this is my daily driver:laughlitt

GoodYear Eagle F1 GS-D3. Have a set of them on my Saab 9000 Aero.
Great tire, great traction. Just a little pricy...

I'm still using the stock size on the rear for now. I'm tryin really hard to convince the wife we need a pair of 17x10.5's on the rear with some 315's to hook all this torque.
