As my last act before leaving for PAX, I ordered my Mickey Thompson tires tonight. All told, just under $1,200 with shipping. For the record, here are the tires I ordered:
As with all things related to this car, there is a lot of difference of opinion about what tires are best for the car. I decided to go with these tires as they were recommended both by the guy providing my shell, and also Tim up in Canada who is building the BatBerry. His car is built off the same donor car, using the same shell I am getting. If he says these tires work, that's good enough for me.
