let's see...

i run F1 GS-D3's in the summer. there's one main road that floods when it rains so i wanted something that grips well and still handles water.

ZRi's i have seen good reviews but wear out really really fast.

i have also heard that the exclaim uhp's wear out fast, but i haven't seen any.

my experience with toyos is with the FZ4 which is a step down from the 4's. they were sticky enough in the dry, but had very poor wet grip.

the rest i have little or no experience with.

Q: What's the difference between a bolt and a screw?
A: First, you screw. Then, you bolt.

Basically I contacted a local guy who did a ton of leg work looking for wheels that would fit our bolt pattern in an 18" rim. He just kept emailing me pics of wheels and when I saw these I was pretty much sold lol.

There's more on the actual Boss site but these just looked like they wanted to jump on my car

Does Avon make a pretty decent performance car tire?
I've never tried them, and haven't' heard much about them.
I know their sportbike tires are frickin golden, but you pay for them....
