Tires

Just wondering what brand of tires is everyone running on.

I had the stock Bridgestone Potenza, then moved onto the Pirelli Super Sport with my RH M5's. Now, I am running on Toyo FZ4 with RH Z5000. thumbsup

Yeah I like it better than the Pirelli. The Pirelli's were a bit too noisey for me. I didn't have AC before, so I had to have the windows down and those suckers were LOUD. The Toyo's have a nice grip and very quiet. thumbsup I am sticking with them.

I love mine .. very minimal road noise, good grip, nice thread pattern, wet weather is pretty damn good. Plus they got this cool rim protection ridge on the side wall ... looks neat.

Lately all it's been doing out here is raining, so I've had plenty of time to test these tires wet weather performance. grin

Nice. It doesn't rain much here in Cali.

Isaac's just got Kumho's. I think those tires are best bang for the buck. thumbsup

I have the Yoks ES100 215/45/17. They are a really nice tire. Very responsive, stick to the road and wet traction isn't that bad. The only downfall is the trealife. i have about 4500 miles on these and they are about 1/2 gone, but i do drive me car hard each and every day.

Wow, are you serious. That isn't much tread life.

Anyone have Yoko Parada (sp?)? You know, the ones with the funky tread line running off to the side?

Tony, I'm not totally sure which model I have but I think they are Avid H4/V4 or something like that. They were intalled on the car when I bought it and are pretty good. I get great response and handling from them.
