Hey guys, I'm back!

Hi guys, I've had an account on this site for a long time, and keep disappearing when I end up selling my F-Bodies.

I've owned a:
2001 Firebird V6 M5
2000 Camaro SS M6
1998 Camaro Z28 A4
...and finally I now own a 2002 Trans Am WS6 M6!!!

Question about tires for these 17'' WS6 wheels... the 275/40/17's, can I get some tire recommendations?

I want a good mix of both good tread life and traction. I was thinking about these...

You would buy them again?

Anything about them you can tell me you really liked about them?

Traction, handling, treadwear, etc...

I just put those tires on the back of my v6 bird, they look amazing and perform just as good. I would recommend them, and plan on replacing the fronts later this year with the same tires.

Treadwear was normal. Traction I would say great, hooked very well,and handling I can't say much because I never really pushed it through turns.

Nice! I haven't ever bought new BFG's before, so I kinda want to know it'll be worth it before spending the $$$$.
