235 55 18 firehawk indy 500 summer tires $99.37

Friendly suggestion if you have a regular vic or grand marquis.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Firestone-0...yqP1:rk:3:pf:0

I run the 235 50 18 version of these on the front of my DTR and the NA silver birch, love the tires.

Ebay has these for less than 100 bucks each with free shipping BRAND NEW.

I bought a set for the Sport as i am putting marauder wheels on it this spring and it needs same diameter tire all the way around, so 295 45 18 in the rear and 235 55 18 in the front.

I have a 03 with 235 55 18 on the front and it keeps the body and frame of the car up just a little higher to keep the chin spoiler high enough for no curbs.
Good price on the tires.

I didnt even bother to look up competitors, friend of mine works at firestone, and i know they are expensive, ive purchased many a tire from them.

Great point.

No taxes too.

Could use as rears if you dont mind them being a few mm thinner than stock.

Summer tires... but here my DTR is still rockin summer tires.

If you have traction control and run stock rear size 245-55-18 and put 235-55-18 in front you only have 1.5% difference and may set off t/c. Must maintain 3-6% height difference
