No thank you sir. I think they are worth $1000 + shipping, so $800 + shipping is an extremely good price. I've had a lot of interest already.

I had the S-Drive's for 3 years, hate that tire, personally. Very slimy when hot, no turn-in, just bad all around. Just my opinion.

Yes, for sure, I'm not a fan of the all season tires either, but the DWS 06 is fantastic, and quieter than a true Summer tire. Lasts longer too.

Thanks man.

Classy color on a classy car, well done sir.

Damn man, those look fantastic. That's pretty much what I'm wanting to do with a set, maybe go a bit darker on the finish, but the same type of finish. I hope you're going with 255/35 tires!
