Such a complicated question...

I worked for Goodyear for 8 years. They make great tires and come as standard equipment on (ready for this) almost 30% of all the vehicles manufactured worldwide. But are they my favorite?

Street performance wise, the Eagle F1 is incredible. However, you sacrifice longevity for grip. Expect 30K or less.

I love the stock Continentals that came with the car. So, for every day use, they are a great compromise. I am on my 2nd set at 45K miles and I am hard on tires.

For AX I use Hoosiers. They are by far the best. I've run Kumho, Toyo and Goodyear GSC (From Competition East) and nothing compares.

Hope this helps!
