Tires...
I am thinking of replacing my stock Yokohama A680 205/50-16 tires in a month or so...
I want confort, less noise, better traction...I dont need snow tractions(for i can just drive my girl friend's car), but definetly rain tractions
i went to Tire Rack to check out some tires...but cant make any decisions...
i like the Goodyear Eagle F1 GS-D3...
any suggestions on which tire is better? thx thumbsup thumbsup wave wave

Yoko's, Falken's, Toyo's, Pirelli's, and Nitto are nice.

I have the Goodyear Eagle F1 GS-D3's.

Hardly any noise, ride quality is awesome, very sticky in the curves, rain traction is awesome, treadlife is long, price is less expensive than other high end models.

You can't go wrong with these.

nittos, yokohama spec-1's are great in the rain, toyos...they make the best low profile tires in my opinion...or are you just buying regular tires?

I always hated Goodyear tires but these new F1's have made me a believer. TRUST ME dude, get the Goodyear's.

Other than http://www.tirerack.com, you can try

http://www.tires.com

and

http://www.victoriatire.com

Those are the only three online tire stores I've dealt with and all of them are pretty good as far as customer service is concerned.
