    HOT ROD Magazine visited our test track to find out which 200-treadwear tire will give you the best performance on an autocross-prepped muscle car. They tested six handling-oriented, street-legal performance tires on a ridiculous four-door, big-block powered 1970 Plymouth Satellite that outran a BMW on our test track! They also name a winner in the tire test, which included the BFGoodrich G-Force Rival, Dunlop Direzza ZII, Hankook Ventus R-S3 z222, Michelin Pilot Super Sport, Falken Azenis RK615k and Nitto NT05. Watch the video above, and for even more tire tech, look for an upcoming article in HOT ROD Magazine.
