Put some poly bushings in the front spring eye and run a set of these... http://www.calvertracing.com/
The E/T Streets are a great tire, good choice.

I will second the suggestion of the Caltracs. If not mistaken they come with a solid alum. bushing for the front spring eye, at least mine did.

Yeah I will also vouch for the caltracs, but about the ET streets, I know they're a great tire but I heard they will only last about 2000 miles on the street. I'm not sure if this is true though.
