    ok so this morning im driving around and im comming up to a stop sign and there is a black suv infront of me.... the driver jumps out and runs up to my window and i happens to be the owner of a local tire shop... and he says stop by the shop, i have something to show you!!!.... so im like....ugh... ok.... i get there and he hands me a paper for pitbull tires.... and says when you get sick of those procomps come see me and ill make you a hell of a deal on these and all you have to do is show them off at car shows and try to sell them for me.... but dont tell anyone how much you paid for them....

    he told me he would sell them to me at cost....

    ive never heard of these but ive researched a little my googleing it.... and i havent read anything bad about them.

    i was wondering if anyone has had any experience with them or knows anything about them....

    what would cost be?

    if anyone has any info let me know

    Had tons on the old Taco's.... new Tundra is pretty stock
    I've heard they run pretty good but aren't much of a street tire since they're bias tires.
