Those look like the new-new Firehawk Wide Oval Indy 500s, just introduced earlier this year. Let me know how they work out for you, eventually my Wide Ovals will need to be replaced... :)

That's why I have 18's they fill the wheel well much better. :D

It may just be the camera angle; we'll see when he gets some outside pictures tomorrow.

True it may be the angle. I run 17's with Vogtland 1.6 drop and I never noticed that much gap.

Never knew I had that much influence! LOL

But yeah, I have been running 40 PSI in them since I had them installed (more a gas mileage thing than anything else) and they still handled amazingly. Aside from my needing a front alignment the treadwear seems pretty good on them. Word of warning though, they do lose some of the grip once the temps start getting colder (still grip decently well though, at least above 40). In any case, an amazing tire for the money no matter how I look at it.

Maybe sometime next year after I get the 3.73s installed I'll take it up to the strip to get a few numbers and get a feel for how well these perform.

Looks real good! Most aftermarket wheels for these have too much offset, those look just right.

Cut those eibachs! :D
