I'm sorry, they are DZ101. I drive 2500 miles per month so I needed something with a decent tread life. I have too many engine mods to be in a competitive class anyhow.

UPDATE: Ordered Stoptech premium blanks from Dezod last night and Hawk HPS Pads from Ebay best offer $135 shipped. Progress bar is in the mail and sitting at the last dealer right now that did clutch work to see if they'll step up and fix the close-to-the floor catch.

The thought is pure ambiguous

Sounds like a good start!

shroogis - look into the Nankang's I mentioned. I put a ton of miles on my car too - for what you save with those tires, a second et of cheap wheels and some decent race rubber isn't so far off!

"badass" doesn't quite cover it, imo.

My experience with any Goodyear tire I've ever driven on is once they have a bit of wear, traction goes to hell, especially "in the wet". How do these hold up when they start to wear down?

these tires were unbelievable in the wet when new. that's why i bought them. the main highway in and out of the city has terrible puddle issues when it rains. 1/4" deep rivers of water crossing the road are as if they aren't even there. the tire just cuts right through them.

i don't notice a significant dropoff in wet weather grip as the tire wears, only the corresponding decrease in resistance to hydroplaning. honestly, though, i have never felt the car hydroplane with these tires. since i have gone to wider widths than stock, the tires tend to drag through big puddles at speed, but i think any tire would do that.

i do consider tires used up at 4/32" tread depth. i don't like the idea of having to significantly adjust my speed or driving style for weather. this is the last season for my snow tires, and they are at 6/32".

if it's pouring rain i still expect to be able to go 65 mph with confidence. if it's snowing lightly, i expect to be able to go 65 on my snows with confidence. i do adjust my cornering speeds accordingly.
