Was wondering if anyone has done any research for tires for the Boss for us guy's who don't track theirs. The Pirellis are pretty impractical, and expensive, for those of us who live in colder climates. Although my Boss is garaged and is not my everyday vehicle, I believe the worst thing you can do is leave your car unused for months at a time. I contacted my local tire guy, and he suggested Continental Extreme WD's. The rears are approx. $270 ea. vs. approx. $450.00 for the Pirellis. They have the same AA traction rating and tread wear is 340 vs 220 for the Pirellis, and they are not Summer only tires. Anyone familiar with these tires. I would also sell my Pirellis if anyone is interested. My Boss has 115 miles on it, no hole shots. Virtually still new. Otherwise i'll wear out the Pirellis and change over at that time.
