Only 12,000 miles and i've got to get some new rear tires already, definitely have been driving aggressively.

Anyways, i'm pretty happy with the F1-SC tires, but 60' times are always 2.1 range and thinking maybe there is something better out there.

Did a search on tirerack and found a couple of other tires including BG-Goodrich G-Force T/A KD, and a couple other vendors including Michelin, Pirelli and Yokohama.

I'm mainly concerned with dry traction, especailly on the drag strip.

I don't want drag radials, and want to stay with the same sized tire.

I'm thinking seriously about the g-force, but would like some input from everyone.

Thanks for any input, and feel free to also email me at [email protected]

The Goodrich KD's are a better tire for autocrossing and drag racing but they do not currently make a 265/35x17 for the front. The autocrossers I know are using the 245's up front and the 295's in the back. That is because of NCCC Group I class rules. The SuperCar Tires are pretty good for drag racing and should give you 2.1's in the 60 ft times. Some serious drag racers claim to be getting 1.9's. The corvette drags I have been to show moslty 2.1's. The KD's ususally get in the high 2.0's. Probably a good side benefit of the KD's is slightly better tire milage.

Get the BF Goodrich, they are giving away a G-Tech Pro Performnce Meter when you get them. It's a pretty good deal, it stars on June 17,2001 and expires on August 31,2001.

I hear they're pretty good tires. /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif /phpBB/images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif

BTW, TireRack does not offer a road hazard warranty on their tires.
