Finally, I went from buying the car with stock black powder coated wheels, to buying chrome wheels that needed spacers and therefore having to raise the coil overs, to now having the stock wheels powder coated “Alien Silver” with heavy clear coat. Next move is to lower the coil overs again. Will post more pics soon.

I'm probably going to paint my calipers... one of these years. You know, it's right up there with getting stage 3 installed, my AFR and oil pressure gauges in my 3 gauge trim pod, etc. Things I have had on the planner for 10 years or so lol

Continental makes a good tire, how do you like them? The Indy 500’s were on the car when I bought it, but they seem like great summer performance tires. They hook up good. I don’t drive in the rain so I can’t comment on that. I like them and the reviews are very good. First set of Firestones I have ever had and would buy them again.

I just said this in one of the other threads, but I also run Michelin Pilot Sport All Season 4 on the daily-driven '4. I have AS3+ on the SRT8 (4's weren't available in the size when I got them). Continental DWS on the PT, and General AS03s on the other '4.

Unless Michelin screws it all up, I doubt I'll consider another brand for performance tires from this point forward. They're remarkable with everything I've thrown at them, from hot sunny days to a dusting of snow, and that's with past experience running a '4 on summer high performance tires.

I was considering the Firehawks simply because when I was buying new rubber, the Michelins were just coming out in the size and they weren't quite available everywhere yet. I've had zero experience with the Firehawks, but everyone seems to praise them.

Likely a smaller price gap up here in Canada too - I think the price difference was less than $150 for the set of the Firehawks vs. Michelins. Performance rubber is a premium up here, regardless of brand or reputation.

What size of the A/S 4's are you running?

The car I just picked up has the A/S 3's that are "expired" and need to be replaced. I'm on the fence if I should get the A/S 4's in 205/50/17 or 215/50/17 for the stock wheels though.

I was a Conti guy until I tried the A/S 4's on my Scat Pack Charger. They do cost you more, but have waaaay better traction & a better tire in general.
