Just don't get Visa tires like they stuck on my old car when I got my new rims. When you hear "I'll throw in the tires for free with the wheels", that's a good warning sign. rofl

You might want to try sumotomo's as well. They are pretty nice and usually aloit cheaper than counterparts of equal performance. I think they are on either tirerack or tires.com

they are just used a lot more because people who don't know anything just buy it since everyone else is thumbsdown

I have Nitto Neo Gens waiting in my basement for the spring. They are basically the same tire as the Parada Spec 2. I heard all the horror stories of driving in the rain with the later so I went with something new. Neither of these 2 tires would I race on a track with, but they were only $420 for 4 17" 215 40. I figured they will out perform my now non-existing stock tires and they would be cheaper than getting Pirelli Assimetrico's again or something similar that I would kill in a year. I wish I had chosen Falkens instead because I heard they are a better tire and around the same price. By the way, I drive a Celica if you didn't know.

I've got Bridgestone Potenza's cause they came with the car. Handle really well and provide a nice tire roar on the highway to keep me awake at night. laughsilly
