Not Neccesarily. The slightest angle change of the V pattern could alter how the car performs in the rain. These huge tire companies don't just sit there and say... Okay lets put on V grooves and we're done. There is lots of testing to see at which angles and at what position the tread design does its best.

Err, Mitch, I said they're all pretty much the same in that "Style" of pattern.

Even if it were dramatically different, unless a whole bunch of us a rubber to water interaction specialists, we could only make best guesses, so don't get your panties in a twist.

So is the debate whether or not there good come down to how they perform on wet ground? I had bridgestone potenza's and they were pretty damn hard but I like them, no complaints.

No no, the debate on how good they are comes down to compound and siping design.

You could have the best siping design in the world and hard rubber and you'd get nowhere in rain off the line if you pinned it.

If it was soft, the soft compound grabs the pavement and moves the car.

No no. I was just bringing up Wet traction cuz it is one of the most important features of the tire. Some tires just suuuuck in the rain and other are amazing! Your tires look like they would do well in both Wet or Dry though if they aren't hard that is.

Thanks for the compliments guyz!

I was thinking about tinting the windows but it would be too much black on the car. The proportion is perfect at the moment.

If my car was strickly for show and I never drove it on the street I'd get 5% tint all around including the windshield. Now THAT would look badass on a shiny black car!!
