finally got new rubber

After researching the web for the best rubber for the buck i decided to go with this Cooper Zeon XST on 305/50/20, the best price i found was $127.00 free shipping but they were out of stock on that size (didn't surprise me) but i need new ones, my factory ones are a little shy on 60K and have busted belts so i went ahead and order from the second best for $125.00 + $71.00 shipping and i got them 36 hours later (today) i got scared wen i saw them, they are huge and look mean, almost like a off road tire but it's a V rated UHP XL.
I'm getting them installed tomorrow, can't wait
