Right I was thinking directional not asymmetrical. Two very different things.



I used to have BOTH Asymmetrical and directional tires on my Z28.

Stupid phenomenal cornering grip.i used to show off by taking right turns in the city no brakes at 32mph.

So there are left and right versions of this tire you have to buy in left/right pairs.

That's the exact tire that's on my trans am right now and what came on my corvette when it was new.

Talk about expensive tires. Well back before they discontinued them.

1st: Is he still your friend?

2nd: if I send him a Muslim calendar (it's 1440 this year) would he want to base his price off it?

Received my new trunk carpeted trunk mat to go under my Weather Tech trunk rubber mat for the pull out floor. Going for sound deadening. Meanwhile it is sitting waiting for a heavy rain to wash off the salt from the roads. Hopefully tonight! No more snow, no more salt piles!

I've had a problem even with the spec length being too long and hitting the 3rd brake light.

my problem with the E70 arm is its all plastic.

2 winters ago flipped it on and snapped the thing right at the pivot
blade must have been frozen to the glass/snow build up.
