    I assume you're going to be open tracking the car and driving it on the street, right? So why two different tires?

    buy a set of azenis for all around, then when you go to the strip, put some 13x12 or what ever the normal slick size is.

    i really want to run a 225 up front... but the 225/50 tire selction blows unless i want to go full comp.
    215/50's practically don't exist, neither do 215/45's in a 15....

    i dunno... we'll see.

    as for looks, i don't give a shit. you try hooking up 3x the poweryour making on the same size tire.... then youc an understand
