What's the best summer tire for my SVT?
Hey guys, I'm looking around for summer tires, since I'm going to need a set. I've heard good things about the hankook ventrus v12 evo's. I had toyo proxes 4 tires on my mustang, and I loved them, so I've been tossing that idea around too. I want something sticky, good in the rain, handle well in corners, doesn't wear out too fast, and won't break the bank. Any ideas are much appreciated.

I have had really good luck with the bfg g-force t a kdw. They are pretty sticky, awesome in the wet and as an added benefit, they look cool.

^ I have the BF Goodrich G-force tires as well in my SVT. Not super knowledgable on tire stuff but from a newbie they feel great. Took a suggested 25mph on ramp at around 45 and the car didn't even flinch. I reached my limit before the car/tires did. : P

I did have a set of those on my mustang, they weren't all too bad. They wore really fast though.

not on my Focus, but I have use Yokohama and Firestone Firehawk Wide Oval Indy 500 on my Mini Cooper as daily tires. both are great tire and will fit your need(sticky, good in the rain, handle well in corners, doesn't wear out too fast). right now I have Dunlop Direzza Sport Z1 Star Spec and they are awesome been using those on track day but suck in rain and waer fast.

Have any of you guys heard of scepter tires? My buddy has a set on his 3000GT and raves about them. I can't find them anywhere. They were on his car when he bought it.

I was looking at the continental extreme contact DWS, but everybody is on back order.
