We call them slipstones for a good reason.

The bridgestones are a good tyre but I don't like them personally, I would put them on my commuter at the right price but not on a high performance car.

But when it comes to heavy machinery that's a different story, I run them on all my cranes and they are awesome and cheap compared to the competition.

comparing them to bridgestones and p zeros amazing tire for the money. They're not directional but can't complaint for the money $700-$800 installed

I just put a set of these on my second car (245,275/45,40/19), road manners are great and they have grip even though that car has a v8. I would recommend them.

Not being directional could be considered a plus for some

Those are threadwear 220 tires. Given the low number of miles your car sees, and how upgraded your suspension is, I would go with something a bit sportier. Perhaps threadwear 180, or even lower if it is a newly developed compound. I believe cup 2 tires are 180 and they probably still last a bit too long.

I've had Firehawks on my PS2 X3 for about a year now and have really liked them. Long wearing, but plenty grippy. Maybe not like a 200 UTQG tire, but far more than the 340 rating it wears would imply. I suspect I'll get about 18 months and 25,000 miles of hard driving out of them before they're into the wear bars.
