I am having to take off my first pair of phoenix's that have 200+runs on them. 1st question is phoenix tires still in selling tires? I can get a set from jegs. Is there a better lasting tire out there. These have been on the car since 2008. My rollout on the phoenix were 102.5 when I first put them on and just measured again and they were 101. Thanks for the input.

They are now owned by Coker Tire I believe. Call them and ask if they still use the same rubber compound. If so, I'd put another set on with a life span like that.

I used then on my car and I loved them.... but I also used them WAYYY back when they were still firestone. tried Goodyears. they were so so. cant fit a Hosier of the same size. too much section width for my car.

I would go with them again if I was you. or me!

Mine were hoooking good till this last weekend. I was having to do a pro stock burnout or its wasn't hooking. But in defense of the tires there isn't much if any indecator left. I have a bad new set of phoenix's in the garage. All I have to do is soap them up and mount them.

I was very happy with my Phoenix slicks. I noticed the other day when I was under the car that the date they put on them when originally mounted was in 2007. Problem is, I wanted another set at the end of June, and the earliest date I was hearing from all the stores was mid August, well now I'm hearing late September early October....I run the 31.25 X 12.2 - I can't wait, I'm going back to Goodyear 14 X 32's (D1984) - they lasted pretty long on the '81 Charger, they're just so freakin' heavy.

I went with the phoenix's. They were great the first time around so I figured I would go with them again. Just hoping the don't leak as much as the last set. Thanks for the help guys.
