I was on Tire rack looking to get a new set of tires for my car (02 ZO6). I saw that Firestone has a new tire out for the ZO6, and they are cheep compared to the F1's. Has anyone tried them,? And are they any good.
I am going to put a set of these on my Syclone pretty soon, as the original tires have had it. I'll be sure to post info on them once they are on for a few hundred miles of 'spirited'
driving. Can't beat the price!
I just put Toyo T-1s on the front. Almost went with the Wide Oval--but having "survived" the Firestone 500 fiasco and looking at Firestone continuing problems on the web I backed off. My local Firestone dealer got me the T-1s for only a few dollars more than the Wide Oval's. Go with the Toyo's is my recommendation.
I put the Wideoval Firehawks from Tire Rack on mine based only on affordability. They work fine. They look OK. They take me where I want to go rain or shine. I have had them now for about 3000 miles. They do not provide much in the way the "mine is bigger" approach though.
I got mine at the local Firestone retailer, tax tag title mount balance, for a little over $800. Good tire and great value. Track and street, the tire performs well. Just ask them to price match internet and they gave me 20% off,came close enough to not mess with shipping.Happy camper!
Like I said earlier I came "this close" to getting the Wide Ovals. But my local Firestone Dealer got me the Toyo's T-1's for only a few bucks (~$30) more than the Wide Ovals. (He pretty much matched the web prices). There are still too many Firestone horror stories circulating-and-my main concern living in South Florida is wet weather traction which seems to be a strongpoint of the Toyo's. FYI, when I got the tires last week my dealer had just returned from a Firestone high performance driving "school". He said the tires were really great, but they didn't have Toyo T-1's on any of the other comaprison cars. JubJub go for the Toyo's!!!!:yeadog:
