Default Scorcher tires any good?

I have a set of 18's on the way and they came mounted with bf goodwrench scorcher t/a's. I was curious how these stacked up in comparison to nitto's 555. I know the stripe is very ricey, but I got a great deal on them

I remember hearing somewhere that the Scorchers are not the grippiest tires. YMMV.

awful rice tires. the only good thing about them i guess is that if you do a burnout you get colored stripes on some surfaces.... but can u do burnouts in a legacy? man that would be so wild

Default FOUR WHEEL BURNOUT!!!

Sure you can do it...get a bottle of soap and put it on all four tires...rev it up...pop the clutch & floor it...

Oh, by the way, I forgot to mention that you would also need a turbo with 300 hp like pipercub, who demonstrated such monstrosity.

All show, no grip. These tires can't compare to the 555s.

just pull your ABS fuse, gun the car to about 40mph, then mash in the brake pedal! that'll give you some nice stipes on the road
