By the way there 225/55/r16 v rated contiental conti-extreme contacts which i bought for a whooping 383 dollars for 4 of them, it's good to have friends in high places
High places? But that's the same price you get them from tirerack shipped (at least to Illinois).
Beat me to it! I've been telling people to get them there for months.
There are only two drawbacks I've heard about the ContiExtremeContacts. #1 They flat spot if you let the car sit for a while, but it goes away after a mile or so of driving. #2 They wear pretty well on the street, but autocross is a different story. But at that price, they are damn near impossible to beat. The Goodyear KDWS is the next closest thing. They wear better on the track, but they aren't as good for all-season use. And the Contis are quieter.
