if i remember the dunlop didn't get too good a grade from tire rack's review section when i bought my TA's a few yrs ago. no intention to steal your thread but i just rotated my TA's front to rear, rear to front because the rear tires were wearing down quick i thought, even wear but sure seems they didn't last long, can't remember what year i bought them or the mileage, but they don't have that my miles because i don't drive the vette that much per year. anyone else experience short tread life with their TA's?
I like the look of the bfg 265 50 15 they will fit on teh 8 inch wheel fine
I think the 265/50/15's are too short and start to give the "roller skate wheel effect" to our cars. My Vette has 255/55/16 "VR" rated Kuhmo tires they have OK stick and good break-away warning but are very noisy at the limit (might attract a cops attention with their howls of protest when being pushed hard.) Here's my car with the 16's on it:

Thanks guys for all the replies; I learned a few things! I like the idea of the V-rated Pirelli's and I'll need to check in to the availability of the T/A's. I also like the idea of upgrading to 16" or 17" wheels. . . Decisions, decisions. . .
