They are for daily use. I am currently a delivery driver, but am about to start looking for a different job, so they will be getting fewer miles on them. I am fairly confident in my wet weather driving, as long as I am not sliding at every turn at any speed.

Well I had AST's on my shadow (size 225/50/16 and they were awesome in the wet. I ran them until they were completely bald and still no issues to report in the wet. But SInce it is very dry in El Paso I don't really have to worry about wet performance very much.

I am pretty sure that Tommie Vaughn has then, or at the very least they can get one. Not too sure on the price, text me what year it is and I can check for you.
