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

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.

Id say value for money FALKEN ZE-326 japanese cant go wrong but if u got money
to burn.Either MICHELIN PILOT PROCEDA or BFGOODRICH G-Force fantastic for handeling
wet wheather or dry comfort,quiet,very good wearing wont beat them.
especially with a GOODYEAR (Because they will only save you once a YEAR)

PIRELLI P6 are a very good tyre thow kms are very average
sidewalls are weak one thing thow i dont understand how people
say GOODYEARS are good. If u love your car you owe it to the car
put something good on it
