I have nothing but good things to say about this tire, I love it. I have a stock engine with a monster shift kit in my transmission. I had traction issues at first but after installing these tires, my baby grips to the road. I can put my foot to the floor at a standstill without any worries now. I have 285 35 18 on the rear of my Trans Am with some 275 40 17 continental extreme contact dw on the front. I wish I had all 4 PS A/S 3 on my TA. These puppies hold the road even during heavy rain.
