Tire Review: Continental Extreme Contact DW

Continental Extreme Contact DW

Earlier this year I took part in the One Lap of America, a combination road rally / track event that takes competitors on a 3500 mile journey to some of the best racetracks in the United States. This event will test not only your stamina and endurance but every single part on your car. It’s long, it’s tough and it’s probably the most fun you’ll have on four wheels. When prepping the car for this event one of the biggest decisions that I had to make was tire choice.

The Charger was attainable, but the Miura, trading hands in the half-million dollar range, was and still is, a bit out of reach. The car was simply stunning from every angle and has a presence that has yet to be matched. Now we come to the Pontiac Fiero, a car that started production in 1984 and ran until 1988. It was small, mid-engine and rather sporty for the time but like all great sports cars it never got really good until it’s final version in 1988, with the introduction of the Fiero GT.

Reinvent the Wheel? It’s possible…

Posted in SEMA, trends, Wheels by MrAngry | February 2nd, 2010 | 1 Response |

Back in the mid 1980’s we started to see a trend pop up on automobiles all over the world. It started off slow at first but as this trend picked up steam it created an industry that changed the look of the automobile forever. Some of you may, or may not agree with this, but the fact of the matter is, 25 years later, that trend is still here and going stronger than ever. I’m talking about the multi-billion dollar industry of aftermarket wheels.
