    of course nobodies happy about the price...but tire companies can rape those lambo and pantera owners all day long...they only make that size tire like once every five years...so the price stays high...since nov...I watched tirerack.com raise their price fro $491 up to $495...and prolly in a month they'll be up to $500..

    if a tire company made some grippy ZR rated 305-40-15's...and sold them for $200 a pop...they couldn't keep them on the shelves.... or even the same can be said for the 345/35/15's...

    I highly doubt I'll be burning off 13" wide 140 treadwear tires with what I got now....but they will have the grip for some nasty road racing...

    Have you ever seen a lambo smoke it's rear tires???? I didn't think so...hehe
