Chris,
I would really like to know about the tire feel and wear. You will love the Dymags.

Id stick with the 275/40/17's. I personally really like the Goodyear F1 GSD3's.

KF, I went with the BFGoodrich Comp TA KDW tire and ordered them from the "Tire Rack"and they were shipped to me in a couple days. I paid $145/per tire which I thought was a GREAT deal for a performance oriented tire that would not see many miles a year.

Had I spent $300/tire, it really would have been a waste, even if the tire was a (marginally) better tire, the money spent (unless I "tracked the car, which I am not) woud have been wasteful.

Looks like the BFGoodrich KDW is now $more/per tire - still a good deal IMO, for something performance oriented, and keeps the car off the ground
