I feel your pain. One of my rims were bent in shipping. I'm just waiting for them to ship it back.

That's what you get for getting black Friday wheels! Lol jk have you contacted them about them?

Interesting. The tread pattern looks different on those than mine.

After thinking about I probably should have went with a radial but oh well. Hopefully I'll be alright in a non radial tire!

Auto could probably go either way, but a stick benefits from less shock on those. They might feel a little hairy over 110 since you are mixing radials with bias ply.

I'd get some skinnies with bias ply for the front if they are track only, or ditch them for some dr's if they will be for the street too honestly. I've mixed them before up to 129mph. I was fine, but it's an uneasy feeling.

I'll probably run them at the track and see how it feels. If its too crazy I'll switch it up. I need to buy new street tires anyways, was looking at nitto invos...
