I have a 98 nascar edition f150 with the yellow goodyear tires.

To say the least, they suck. I wouldn't buy them.

Take a look at the 235/60/16 kuhmo kh11 from tirerack. This is a great tire for a tbird. Its a summer tire, not for snow of any kind.

I just put them on last fall. They are not a bad tire for the price, but personally I would put a lil more money into a better set. But if you car is stock these will grip the road fine for you.

The NASCAR edition tires are just Eagle GT IIs with the special yellow lettering. The GT II is being phased out, many of the sizes have been discontinued already. The replacement for them, the Eagle GT-HR, is a very good tire.
