Im running Yokohama AVS ES 100s E-Spec tires on my good set of wheels and have been pleased with their performance, however when it comes down to it I dont think Im ever going to be spending $600 on tires again, I dont think its THAT big of a difference, Ill just get some mid-range cheaper tires next time

Yeah, just get some cheaper tires. After all, you have 9 lives, so you wont die when the car hydroplanes in the rain, or you can't stop in time for the kid chasing their ball into the street, or you wont be able to avoid the deer that runs out in front of your car, etc.

The moral of the story is, tires are the last thing between you and the road and it is money well spent to get the best tires you can afford.

Definitely spend as much as your budget allows on tires. Also for winter peeps, all seasons are not "ALL SEASONS". Pick up a set of winter tires if at all possible. The difference between a/s and winters night and day.

good lord, he just said cheaper mid-range! and price is not everything!
Pirellis suck balls IMO, and they are way over priced.

I spent alot of time looking for good tires, and found these goodyear eagle F1 GS-D3's. Real aggressive pattern, fantastic reviews from several people and they are a Max Performance tire that gets decent tread wear ratings. All I can say is these things were great for what you get, I spent 550 on them, and they are by far and away the nicest tires I've ridden on. They are quieter than even most all-season tires even though they have half as much sidewall as the all seasons I have. They are supremely sticky, wet sticky, dry sticky, you name it they stick to it, but even after about 1000 miles so far, you can barely tell that they've been used. I would suggest them to anyone. Especially people in the Yoko AVS range, I think those are like 100 a piece or something like that and these were only like 110 a piece plus the goodyear name

Continental - if it's good enough for BMW, it's good enough for me.

I've been very happy with my Yokohama's performance in both wet and dry weather.
