    One of my mustang buddies was rockin the wide ovals one time... we just couldn't take them seriously as a result.

    (yes they're good, mustang, twisty road, indy wide ovals, you get the idea -- it's like what happened when nascar went to mexico for the first time and all of them spun on the only curbing they've ever seen)

    This is a good thread with some great info. James is right and I didnít think about that when I posted The re71rís and the federal 595ís I ran were BIG compared to these potenzas and had to grind the rear uprights to squeeze them in. My friends running nt01ís and they are big also.

    Since stage 3 and beyond I've ran a couple sets of summer tires. Here are my thoughts:

    F21 + meth, 410whp on AWE's mustang dyno

    1. Conti DW - Good tire for the money at the time. Sidewalls were soft and every set cupped. Probably ran 2 or 3 sets of these due to being poor and in college
    2. Bridgestone 760 sport- grip was meh, wore fast, not very impressed

    Built motor K24, ~550-600whp

    1. Khumo V720- Very good traction and aggressive looking tire. Traction in the rain was good as well and the sidewalls were nice and stiff. But they got extremely loud in 5-7k miles
    2. Falken RT615k (current)- Awesome traction, good looking and quiet so far. Much more so than the Khumos. Sidewalls are stiff, decent in the rain, though I don't really drive it in the rain often. If it's wet or chilly any tire will spin at this power level though. And yes, I flicked the wheel a little...

    see now you're just making the case for wanting less grip...

    agreed on all that. Aggressive/cheap is a bad combo. if they look like mudding tire tread blocks, they'd better be expensive/mainstream or I don't wanna hear about refinement :)

    Haha. The 615s are a badass tire and look tough and meaty. Super sticky when it's warm out. They're constantly kicking up shit on the underside of the car.

    The original ventus RS3s would disagree. Back in my e30 days those were the tires to have if you weren't going for R comps.

    true enough, but I don't strike oil every time I dig a hole. Usually I just end up with a perfectly good tread that's decided to unglue itself from the threading sitting on the side of the road. Think I got about a mile and a half out of my last offbrand venture. Go figure $50 a tire and a name like sentury... UHP alright. Now to see if they'll prorate my 40,000 mile warranty :P

    Good sticky tire thatís
    inexpensive are federal
    595ís. At 500whp those
    and 225/40/18 Nitto nt05ís
    hooked great. Wouldnít
    even spin much out of the
    hole. Wet traction on the
    summer tires isnít as good
    though. The nt05ís run very
    wide youíd barley be able to
    fit 235ís.

    It depends on what you want
    and how you have your car setup.

    Bang for you buck 600 for set of falken azeni 615k+ itís a damn good tire. I have also ran federal 595s in the past, a surprisingly decent tire for the money. I have two kids and I like to do highway pulls here and there so my days of cheap tires off brand tires are behind me.

    615Ks are my fav so far for sure. And they look scrappy.

    I run a 225/35/R18 falken azenis rt615k+

    For me they fit just right.

    The rim came with a 235 and I rubbed all day and got 225s no problems at all.
