    alot of this section talks about springs, coilovers, etc.. but very little about tires.. so what i wanna know is what kind do like and for what? meaning McThompson for drag.. etc.. just curious since tires are the only thing that is in contact with the road unless you crashed or lowered so far that ur exhaust scraps..

    the falken azenzis are really nice wheels. i personally dont have it myself, but i have friends that have them and the ride is nice. perfect for street/strip IMO.

    If you're wanting all season, my new Falken Ziex 512's rule in the rain and dry pavement.

    im running dunlop sp5000's on my daily driver and they are great .... they handle great on dry pavement, great in the rain, and i can get through more snow than bill can with his truck

    S-03s are a good choice, if you have the money. A good friend of mine has them mounted on Volks and they are the best tire I've ever had the chance to drive. The Toyo T1S is really nice, too, I may get a set after these garbage FZ4s wear down a little more.

    Hahahha, another sucker who bought FZ4's. I'm sorry. They shouldn't take long to wear out. Mine took 5 months.
