Because of the expense, a lot of them are using the Hankook R201, 202, and 203 series tires.

If I remember correctly, each series can be had for about $125-$150 each depending on size.

I have no idea if they are even remotely competitive, but they seem to be the tire of choice in this area.

Just throwing that out for consideration.
^^^This seems to be more of a low-key club, I'm not into danger especially w/o a roll cage. What I het from it, is 70-80% tarmac ans 230% gravel roads in the local state parks. My first plan is to volunteer and do some ride alongs. I'm just getting my rally feet wet and keeping the feelers out there

mlbbaseball kylesvt720, what kind of cage do you have?? I have been looking for a while and still haven't been able to get the right one!!

kylesvt720 I would try to see if you can find some used snow tires, I run bridgestone blizzaks in the winter, and they work well on back roads. Also mlbbaseball, I go to the LSPR every year, look for a yellow EAP SVT this year! I'll be there, chasing all my friends in Audis...

If you want more agressive tires, mostly for dirt roads...http://www.subesports.com/products/c...ly/prodID/1974

Hope they help. These are like the best amateur tires you will find and the price is awesome.
^^^Thanks abunch for the info! Just alittle pricey for my first set. My thought was the pirellis winter ice/snow where I can get all four around $300 and also use them in the winter. But, I do know rally is expensive! Need to keep my first season at a minimum until the little lady approves the larger amounts of cash.
