Tire Reviews
I've been running with Falken Azenis R/T 215 for about a year now and they're great tires in summer cause they grip very well. So far i've noticed that they have great grip, quick steering response and have pretty good predictability. But now they're wearing down on me, and i need new tires. I'm getting pretty tired of hydroplaning so easily on my falkens so i'm considering Bridgestone S0-3 pole positions. I've read they have great wet and dry grip and they have a soft compound under the out hard compound so they get stickier as they wear, kinda cool. can anyone confirm this or give a review of them? feel free to give other tire reviews too. thanks.

Ever since I got the new Fuzions from Bridgestone, I will never go with anything different. If the tires you are talking about are like the Fuzions, the rubber revulcanizes. This means that the tire will always stay soft no matter how much wear you have on them. Hope that helps.

I have the BFGoodrich Gforce t/A's, I will say that my experience w/ them has been nothing but enjoyable, I've had them for a while too and they are just about starting to wear. They have awesome wet and dry traction. I use them when I autocross and i love the grip they give me. They are a bit pricy but well worth it.
My Friend can't stop giving me good praise about the Hancook Ventus tires, he says they are unbelievably sticky, and grip like no other. I haven't driven his car, but he loves them, so I thought I'd throw it out there. thumbsup

Hi Kim how are you? well I have two sets of tires, as you might know- yokohama avs es100 and michelin pilot sport.

some say the es100s don't grip that well but i beg to differ. solid grip in dry and wet...inspires great confidence. any slippage at maximum cornering is totally under control and it doesn't give up without a fight. they provide a firm but nice ride due to the stiffer sidewalls and for an "ultra high performance" tire, noise levels are low thumbsup hmm what else can i think of...oh yeah, they also takes potholes well. happywink (i highly recommend this tire- don't listen to all those naysayers!!!!!!!!!!)

as for the michelin pilot sport- good handling but terrible road noise, especially at low speeds and from what i hear, it has bad thread wear. i've also read problems regarding the sidewall but i do not know the details of that. overall a DECENT performance tire with a terrible price tag.

good luck in your search for new tires wave

Yeah Kim, this is my second set of AVS ES100 yoko's and I love them. GOod tread wear and they grip excellent in the dry and grip good in the wet conditions. I love how they grip when I take them turns hard!

i have fuzion zri tires..they're a new tire (by bridgestone) thats aimed at the tuner market..pretty good value. sproty look, excellent wet/dry traction..but you pay for it in tire wear (it's a pretty soft tire..like most ultra high performance tires). no complaints, other than the wear. thumbsup but for $85 a tire, it's still excellent value
