    I don't think you'll need a girdle if you don't plan on hooking the car hard on drag radials or similar. They are nice looking, but hardly worth the expense for cosmetics only.

    Unless you have the TW170s, go with the 170 11R. I'd actually go with the 190 11R (same money at the 170), despite your modest goals here.
