So people... Which slicks would be easier to procure ?
Am all ready for the Fed-Ex option too.. and 5 grand a piece sounds fair enough to me.

the question being Yokohama / dunlop / Hoosier ?
Does any one have the tyre specs for any of the above brand / product ?
If anyone's ready to barter with someinfo, i'm ready too !! {pm me , if needed}.
