a lot of different factors on what psi to run but i think the biggest would be to check the tire manufacturers recommendation.

Will have to see. Most places like tirerack only show MAX PSI for each tire, not MIN.

http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires.jsp?tireMake=BFGoodrich&tireModel=g-Force+T%2FA+KDW+2&partnum=83YR0GFTAKDW2XL&vehicleSearch=false&fromCompare1=yes

I guess I"ll see how these tires compare to my F1's. Looks like they have more aggressive tread...not sure how that will help high torque traction but it might help in rain or snow.

I weighed my rims + tires...EXACT, and I mean to withing a fraction of the pound, same weight as stock ones. No loss in performance...Yessss! And since my rears are 10.5" rims, I can up my tire size to 315 :-)

All shined up and waiting for the lugs!!!

His stockers run about $300-$400 per tire and I believe he has his wheels/tires for sale for around $2200 as a package deal.

Not a bad deal. The wife has thoroughly thrashed my 1 off Enkie's :-( time to try something else. Also, they member that had his wheel fixed down south, do we have one of those guys around town??? Maybe I can just get mine repaired. 3 out of 4 are road rashed.

Me happy! My other wheels have sold. After shipping, I actually made 80 dollars. So basically I was paid 80 dollars to upgrade to a $5000 set of wheels.

At about 72 degrees outside, and not too too much warm up, they hooked up slightly better than my stocks. However, as reviews say, they are NOISY tires. I do like how they look thought! They are Y rated as compared to my W rated stocks as well. Yay, now I can go 186 mph. Yeah right!

Hey by the way, imagine that 3rd pic above with carbon fiber chin splitter, rockers, and hood vent. I'm leaning towards doing it...and then getting pulley and tune. And 10% OD. I'll have like 15 psi of boost.

Looks pretty sweet! I knew they would look right at home on your car. Did anyone mention lowering springs? :)

haha, so I guess I need lowering springs? What kit would you guys recommend...and is this a self install sort of thing or would you have a shop do it. My suspension is already pretty stiff, will a lowering kit make it stiffer?

Send me some links to what you would buy...looking for bang for buck, not absolute best.

they are all around the same price. Looking to spend $200-250 on a new set.

Can be installed in about 2 hours with a floor jack, stands, and simple hand tools.

If I got lowering springs, is there anything else I would have to get. Wouldn't this mess with the suspension forces? I see on many web pages that "customers also bought" caster camber plates. Do I need those?

ALSO...I need to know for sure these are upgrades from my SVT package.

I would suggest FRPP or Eibach lowering springs. With a mild drop your caster/camber will probably be within an acceptable range, at least that's how mine was. Those with GT500s might have different thoughts though. Just make sure you get an alignment after the install.

If you plan on getting a tune, you should be able to adjust the speedometer calibration through the tuner.

You will need a programmer to change the speedo.

When you drop, I would suggest you start with some camber bolts and an alignment. If you notice any other differences, upgrade then. Lots that you can get, but it may not be necessary.

Like Jerry said, tuner for the speedo.

Also, what neighborhood do you live in? That looks really familiar. Have some friends that live in a new housing addition around E 24th and Tecumseh. Looks similar to that, though all new houses look the same to me.

I'm in NW Norman, Cascade edition.

I might hold off on the lowering. Doing some reading, there are a lot of adjustments that would need to be made. Plus...my front end is already so low...and I"m planning on putting carbon fiber on the chin spoiler. I suppose I could lower just the rear to even it out...there is more distance in the back wheel wells anyhow. I read I might need a new adjustable panhard bar though. Sounds like a lot of adjustments and I don't want to screw up my performance and tire wear issues.

Mine is lowered.... no problems. A little harsh ride, but still very comfortable. Unless of course you're on a pothole infested road.

Well, noticed decent vibration going down highway after I got my wheels on. Figured maybe out of balance. Brought to Hibdon to have balanced (and I watched the whole time). They had to 180 each tire b/c it was not seated right. Well, noticed right away two bulges in my front tire sidewalls! I told them it was NOT there before, and they agreed...you could see the small teeth marks from the machine. Maybe the tires were bad...or weak...but the sidewall bulge is separation.

Anyway, the guy instantly ordered me two brand new front tires. Well now...that will probably get rid of the vibration! Yay! But to tell you the truth, I'd rather have different ones.

Finally after waiting 10 months my signed dash plaque is in the car. :) Thought I'd never see it! Still worth the wait though.

i've been wondering how these tires will be for street driving around town. they definitely are a bit loud, but dammit one thing you don't have to worry about is rain. i don't even bother slowing down when it's pouring outside with these. never have i lost traction or even any hint of hydroplaining while going 85 on the highway
