They are really cool looking and really expensive - Hoosiers from Lake Geneva, Wi - Berget Tire - new and used - for $50 to $150 a corner - Street TD's - drive the crap out of these.

Not trying to muddy the waters here but the Vredestein Sprint Classic is an other alternative:  https://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires.jsp?tireMake=Vredestein&tireModel=Sprint+Classic&partnum=07WR5SC

That's funny you mention these, Stan, as I these are the exact tires I ordered and am currently using on 6S141!

And, for the price and functionality, I love them!
Nothing beats a classic!

I just got a set of those for the Tiger (205/60VR-13), took the first ride on Sunday - all seems good. With all of the caution about breaking in new tires, I did not push it around any ramps or curves [yet]. I did take a run down a sparsely occupied highway, and it was very smooth, I "may have" gone a little over the posted speed  ???
The shop noted that they balanced really well - at least one had no weights.
Seems like I looked at these a couple of years ago... but now the prices are quite a bit LOWER(?)
I also checked my old file... and I did put a set of the "old version" of these on the car (185/70-13) back  in 1985 when we first bought it.
Full disclosure: I was just selected as a "tire tester" for Vredestein.

I have AVON 215/60R/15 in the front and 225/60R/15 in the rear on the car right now. When racing the car has had Hoosier and Goodyears on it.

Where do you race your 350 gsharapa, I've not seen it before?  Interestingly enough my 350 bears the exact same number (#74).

As far as I know there are only two CR6ZZ dealers in North America, Roger Kraus on the west coast and SASCO Motorsports on the east coast.
