I bought a set of 17" Wanli aqua treads. Havn't yet put them on, but I'll let ya know when I do. I right now have Kumho's, I like them. I also like Yokohoma a lot.

Thumbs up BFG's

just installed a set of the bfg kdw's in the new tread design. man do these things hook. on the stock conti's i could brake them loose easy, even get a chirp out of third gear, now maybe just a little chirp in second gear. the ride is a little stiffer and some more road noise than with the conti's but that's the trade off. so far i am happy with them, i will keep an eye on the tread wear though.

Good Year Eagle F-1's handson, expensive as hell, wear faster than the norm, but stickier than a fly on honey. I use Dunlops on my GSX-R 750 05', too.

Mirada

That is the best tire I have found for the money. Each tire costs about 60 bucks and they are tough. Good tread pattern and you get the bite you need in the curves.

Goodyear Eagle came on the car and they didn't last very long. The rubber is too soft for me.

They are summer not all season. I have them and love them as well.
