it seems like my tires wore out pretty damn fast. correct me if im wrong but performance tires are a softer rubber correct and they wear faster? I was thinkin about gettin the proces 4. at a local tire shop this guy was trying to sell me some nankangs or something like that. should i get 225/35 or what?

go to tirerack.com and compare tires based on your own needs. I got Bridgestone Potenzas RE070, I think they are great but still think theres something better out there. Most tire shops will try to sell you "race" tires like Kuhmo, Fusion, and Nankings, they are the APC of tire companies, cheap shit for people who don't know anything.
You should probably get 225 in 45 or 50 series as the drop is going to make your car low, you might need the extra hieght a bit, also a better ride comfort.
