215/35/18 tire advice, and suspension upgrade help
I am going to have to replace my Nankangs soon and need some advice. Although they have lasted about 17000 miles they have never ridden very good and seem like they are out of balance, although they have been balanced. They still have ok tread on them but the two rear tires are wearing out strangly on the inside. They are wearing in a wavy, bumpy pattern not smoothly. I have Eibach sportlines with 39000 mile on car (02 GTS). From the way the car is riding and From searching forums im guessing the struts are prob worn and need replacing. But is this causing the tire to wear like that, or just the crappy Nankangs. It seems like everything started happening after installing these tires. I had Yoko Spec-2's before and everything was fine. What tires are everyone else running in this size 215/35/18. What do you guys recommend. New struts, better tires, and alignment????

Springs, wheels and tires, originally were intalled at about 5,000 miles. And alignment was done then, but now it has 39,000 miles with second set of tires (Nankang)with bad ride (vibration, road noise, mainly from rear tires that are wearing weird)
