Once the mold release was scrubbed off, they definitely had a lot of grip. Night and day compared to my old tires and wheels. I am rubbing the front struts a bit. I think some spacers might by in my future for the front wheels.

Other than that, its time to get a real pressure gage and start dialing these tires in. I may actually be more competitive in STS now.
Those are the exact same wheels I was looking at getting, and the same tire size. Keep us updated as you dial those thangs in.
