These tires were on the set of wheels I got off of Crovo, he had them on his Impala. (The fronts were 255s)
I ran them last year for a while until I removed the chrome wheels for the winter and put my skinny steelies back on. I just bought a new pair of Firehawks in 255 form to match the fronts, so I can rotate them as a set, and have these left over. They actually looked cool, but I wanted the tires to be all the same size.
Not perfect, not terrible. They have about 50 percent tread overall, I guess, it's hard to describe- they are more worn in the center 3"~ of the tire than the rest. I think it's just to do with them being as wide as they are and having been on an 8" rim, and not being able to be rotated.
I had no real problems in the rain with them on the back of the car as far as wheelspin or skidding goes, they worked just like the other three sets of tires I've had on the Caprice...and my car is a peg-leg rear end too... the tread is fine on the outer 3 or so inch areas inboard of the sidewalls. They are not down to the wear bars yet in the center either. Still have life left and I'd say would pass inspection.
I was going to just put them away in case I ever wanted them for something, but I don't think I'll be able to use them because the Firehawks are now on the Impala. That car can't take anything in back over a 255 on the 15x8 wheels because of the backspacing, the tires would nail the quarter panel lips.
If anyone's interested let me know. $50 obo for the pair of them. I'll take a pic of the tread tomorrow.
