Here's why...

Level 10 is the biggest sham of a company I've ever seen.

How do the street radials feel in the rain? I don't drive my car if I know it's going to rain but I don't want to feel unsafe if it does rain.

I've been caught in the rain with my MT ET streets and I was pleasantly surprised with how well they did. I wouldn't drive in the rain purposefully but I have piece of mind now, that I won't die if it does happen.

That's what I'm looking for. I'm on the run flats that came with the car and the rears are about due to be changed. How do they feel cornering? I also don't want to lose handling in the corners.I won't be going over 500 rwhp anytime soon. So I just need something to hook up with that but still have a stiff sidewall and not die in the rain.

If you won't be going over 500whp you don't need these tires. NT555Rs should be just fine for your application.

Mickeys are the softest of all the Drag Radials. I was wheels up and cutting 1.3 60' on the regular with mine. They will put down a lot of power.

I just checked those out. I'm only running 245 40 18 and they don't come in that size. Any other recommendations? Also thinking of Michelin PSS, but didn't know how well they'd hold in that range.

How did you find the original et streets? All I see now are the et street s/s? I'm going to run the 275/40r17 on 17x9.5" Apec arc-8 on my 335is
