my dad bought me some Regatta 2s when a nail went through my old showing belt tires (couldn't even get up my driveway w/o a runup on these and my driveway is sloped for about 10 ft at maybe 25 degrees) Those things are GREAT for all season regular old tires. And their TALL as hell. I like the fatty rubber cause i dont have to worry about curbs getting in my way Anyway, nice tires, just here to say i love my good old 215s too

the Indys are a good match for our cars. They have noticeable sidewall flex but grip real good (like our our cars have generous body roll yet mage upper .8's on a skidpad).

i definitely like the white letter tires.... i got rid of my old firestones because they were bald and pieces of crap. I got a set of BFG Radial T/A's for 292 Installed on my car... handle better and definitely look better with the white letters!...

Lookin' good!!

You know he's on the level.

I love mine. I had some SS20 that I replaced with the Indy 500's. They stick like glue.

Some people talk about the fact that these tires have a lot of sidewall flex, but were running 70% sidewall!! If you want less sidewall flex get a bigger rim.

Those look sweet. I like white letters, I had some Hoosier Radial GT white letters on my old 93LX. Hard as rocks and couldnt wear out the tread. I just got some Dayton Daytona SR white letters on my current 93LX. They have a blocked tread pattern like the indy's and look much wider compared to a rounded tread tire. They were also pretty cheap and look to have the same tread as the indy 500's. I guess it is the same company....

currently:
96 Cougar XR-7 V-6
05 F-150 XLT 5.4 SCab
04 Explorer XLS

83 Heritage 5.0 (was built), 90 LX V-6, 93 LX V-6 tan,

90 Thunderbird 35th Super Coupe
