My car came stock with Firestone Firehawks (for 16" stock wheel) but I just replaced those with TOYO Proxy's and I love them.

When you are all buying these tires are you getting the top of the line road hazard warranty? The reason I ask is for the sake of those who have not bought new tires yet. Just today I learned that my brand new (a few months old) Pzero Nero M/S which were $143 a piece had a big ass nail that went in the top of the tire and is sticking out the sidewall, since they can not patch this I get a free tire. The good road hazard warranty costs between $20 to $30 per tire but one patch job runs $24 so it pays for it self after awhile. In my case I more than tripled my money back from the money I spent on road hazard.

I have the same tires and no complaints here. Good on snow and wet roads, great on dry.

I have yokohama parada spec-2s on now and they suck! I had kumho supra ecsta 712s on before and love them. I consider them the best from my experience. I can corner hard in the rain with those. Parada spec-2s lose traction in a 1/2 cup of water!

At $140 a tire when you figure $25 dollars a tire for road hazard which comes up to $100 for all four. I had to have one replaced due to a nail sticking in the sidewall so since it could not be patched it was free. With $140 plus tax I'm looking at around $145 per tire so I came out $45 ahead already and the road hazard I have is good for the life of the tire. Free tire rotation, free flat/patch repair and free balanceing for as long as I have the tire's, you can't beat that.
