Is it a DD, weekend cruiser, some type of racing (drag/autocross/long track), or a mix of a few things?
In general I buy my tires from the local Great American Tire shop since I know the owner and usually get a pretty good deal. Of course I have to plan ahead since it usually takes a few days to get whatever I pick in for the older cars I have, but I've always been able to find something.
After much research I just purchased a set Nitto 555-G2s for my '95 Coupe. Under $800 out the door, regular price. Discount Tire got them to the store in 1 day. Balanced with Hunter 9700. Smooth as glass on the interstate. Put about 3,000 mi. per year on car as most of it is car shows in Ohio, except 1 trip per year to All Corvette Show in Myrtle Beach. Even though the tires are stock and same tread width profile as on my friend's new C7, the tread contact patch is wider than his stock Michelin's. The tread is also very aggressive and shows nicely. They are designed to sipe water extremely well. If they wear and handle as well as the Kuhmo ECSTA's I pulled off I will be extremely pleased.
What's up, guys and gals?

As some of you may recall, SoCaliVette was working hard on creating a Carbon Fiber Targa Top for our beloved C4's. Original Thread I'm here to present the test of this roof, including install on a frame, answer questions and be as helpful as possible to folks who have an interest. All I ask is...
