For those that love the fine Goodyear f1 tires on stock rims at then moment that’s what is on mine. Who doesn’t love the feel of hard plastic on a cold day View attachment 208853
Dear Carroll, please watch over this lover of your cars as he dangers the perils of everyday driving on possibly the worst "performance tire" ever produced.

Lol 😂 it’s funny says specifically developed for our car they must not have ever left the desert for any testing because they’re not the worst thing in the world until below 50 degrees and they really go down hill fast then. I’ve just got my stock rims back on with stock spec tires because I was about to sell it for my 2020 and my buddy a buzzard who had been eyeing my forged rims talked me out of them then I decided I’m going to keep her so have them driving around until I get my tires. My new super snake rims have already arrived. I’m pretty firm decided on the pilot sport 4s just like my 20. I had 555r on her previously

Here are some pics I took Halloween night of my 07 gt500 and my wifes 2012 v6. Running forgestar f14 drag pack in gunmetal on the gt500..
17x7 front with a 235/55/17 all season and 17x10.5 in the back with 305/45/17 et street rs. The front wheels were 17.4 lbs each and the rears were 19.6 lbs each i weighed them myself. 45 lbs with the tires mounted for each front and 50 for the rears. Shed quite a bit of weight over the 20 inch rovos the car had when i bought it and it rides a hell of alot better not to mention how much better it hooks!!! I actually prefer the current look over the 20s although they looked good too. Ill see if i can find some pics with those also.

Here's what a 2013 SuperSnake wheel looks like disassembled. Had a local custom wheel guy put a new bead of silicon on the barrel seam since it had developed a leak. So far so good.

That’s cool Austin! I’ve never seen one taken apart like that.

Had those on my 1969 Camaro.
I had all kinds of wheel dreams for that car as far as modern and cool but nothing looked better to my eye than those so I went with the classics lol. They look great on it too. I bet they looked great on your 69
