    Am I the only one fascinated with how tires look? I seriously spend a lot of time looking at and admiring tires and their tread. Sometimes I think I dont even care how it handles "that would look badass on my car". Thoughts?

    Um, I do not share your fascination with tires ... I am guilty of admiring rims, though. :)

    The tires help make the hellcat. Good tires make the car hook and book

    force of habit for me. I used to run a Goodrich tire shop in the 1980's.
    I look at both now and maybe ask questions of the owner of his choice of wheels and tires.

    Really happened on Sunday:
    At a Cars and Coffee I came in and a few of the foreign car owners frowned at my 4 doors. So after i parked, i came around and looked at their cars. when i noticed a Maserati GranTurismo Convertible sitting there. As i look over the car he is looking at my shirt with the SRT Hellcat logo on it. I ask if it is his car and he says yes.
    I politely point out his right front tire with a huge bubble on the sidewall. I say you don't drive it much do you. But you did hit a mighty pothole before didn't you?
    HAHAHAHA As i walk away his buddies come over and they all start pointing!
    Laugh at my 4 door will you? Wipe that smirk off your face, dumb ass.

    Matt

    The 4 door argument is about as silly as they come. Like yeah buddy, I can blow your doors off with 5 people in the car and a trunk full of stuff.
