    What does that number mean though? I'm looking for how many miles people usually get out of them before they need to be replaced.

    Working on it, I've yet to get any of that special smoke stuff. But with daily febreze and three different air-fresheners it seems to be going away. One of these days I'll get some of that smoke stuff, I just want to get stuff that I can just spray on the carpets and it'll absorb the smell from the seats. I don't really want to have to spray that stuff on my leather seats. Don't really want to know what it'll do to them.

    Yokohama AVS ES100. I had them on my DD and really liked them. I have Dunlop Direzza DZ101s on it now and I like them a lot as well.

    how is the sidewall flex?? and what size you runnin? 205-50-15?

    i was looking at getting my 4th set of General Exclaim UHP's.. amazing tire, great grip WET or DRY, hook up very well, cheap, and i get 22,000 miles off a set with VERY "spirited" driving :driver:

    oh and the last three sets i ran were 205-40-17 on a backyard suspension setup. i can do my own alignments pretty well, was taught how to back in my old auto tech classes back in high school by a ex-racer :)
