I had the F1's on the front of my car for awhile. Not worth the money at all in my opinion. I'd go with a nice Toyo, Falken, or Nitto that is moderately priced.

I have not run the Supercars, but don't seem to have a much better tread pattern than that of your average A/S tire. I would recommend the Michelin PS2 as I run them myself on Winter wheels and am a VERY avid fan of Chubby Checker, as we BOTH do the twist :yes

I personally never buy anything too insane for street tires. Cheapest possible.

If I was on a budget I would do the 555 / 555R combo.

If I wanted maximum street/strip performance I'd pick some cheap who-knows-what tires for the front and M/T DR.

If I didn't care about strip performance because I have track wheels then I'd just find whatever was on sale.

Maybe my approach to tires sucks. I just have a hard time dropping a ton of money to do 20mph in a school zone on the way to the mall or something. :(

I love my BFG KDW's. I've had them on three of my stangs and are way better than the Khumos sitting on the SVO now.

I haven't heard a lot of good things about the KDW, I would say the 555 and 555R combo like stated above. I am sure u don't drive in rain or snow so the drag radials should be good for u

It sucks. Eventually cheaping out on tires willl bite you in the ass.

I've put two summers on my BFG KDW2's and I love them. They provide great traction both wet and dry. I would easily buy them again.

F1s suck beyond belief. I love my KDWs for daily driving.

These are stock sizes by the way.

I have always been a fan of the kdws but heard with the new tread pattern they can be noisy?
