The AVS Sport is Yokohama's top of the line tire. You could also get their AO32R it's an R compound tire, but it is DOT approved. You would have to buy new ones everytime you get your oil changed though!! Outside of Yokohama you have your Pilot Sports, Toyo has a new top of the line tire, Bridgestone Pole Position. Check out tire rack!!!

man ya'll have problems with noise too. is the inner edge on your pair messing up like little knots. not like a camber issue. parts of the tire are wearing to where there are differences in height. like your bouncing and parts are wearing quicker. other than that it handles awesome, unlike any other tire.

I would have gone with the Nitto NT555 Extreme...the two grooves repell the water very well and they have the same grip as the Parada's in the dry...and they're not noisy either.
