    Finally my 325/30R19 Firehawk Indy 500's came in and I couldn't be more pleased @ 300 bucks a tire!

    Woah, that's a lot of meat! I didn't realize the Firehawks came that wide, but admittedly I was probably looking into 20" diameter. $300 a tire sounds like a pretty good deal.

    I have 325 30 19s on an 19x11 rear wheel. Fit awesome and do not rub at all. Money are ET Street S/S and hook way better than the stocks with this whipple.

    Been 500 miles since I put on the new shoes (front & rear). LOVE them. Outstanding cornering, acceleration, & braking. Ride is nice,
    RN isn't to bad. Excellent all around tire!

    Maybe so, but it handles soooooo much better now. Traction is crazy good as well. I'd rather have some bulge. That's just me.

    That's because you went to a tire with significantly more sidewall stiffness than your previous NT05Rs. It's good you're happy. Could be even better though :wink:

    If only they would release a 305 19" :-(

    I am gonna be starting a new job which will require a 90 mile commute daily, so not sold on doing a 325 for when it rains. Really thinking about buying another 10" rim and doing 285 all around.

    Rains? Another side benefit of these firehawks is a crazy amount of traction in the rain. My old (new at the time) Nt05's had zip, zero, nada when wet.
