Replaced the P6s at 27k with Bridgestone G009. Stickier and a little firmer ride.

My car came with Riken Raptors.
I believe they are made by Michelin.

I don't know how much is the car and how much is the tire, but damn.
I've never lost traction, squealed, or anything, and they seem very quiet.
Of course, I dont get that weird white crap that falls from the sky (cant remember what its called, ive only seen it on tv.)

Bridgestone #1, and its subsidiaries like Fuzion (which I have on my car now), and Firestone as #2...

I had Dunlop SP Sports Great for rain/snow for a "performance" tire. I especially liked the "hang over" that prevents scuffing the wheels when parallel parking! I just got the new car and am already planning on getting some more Dunlops.

Avon tyres are kinda nice..

So far, I'm liking the Contis on my SVT, but overall I think my favorite tire that I've ever run on a car has been a set of Dunlop SP5000 Assymetrics that came OEM on the Protege that I traded in on the SVT I currently have. They were very nice tires in almost every respect.

pzero rosso all the way

i love my job i get tyres for much cheapness and can fit them for nothing, the main problem with the harder compound bridgestone and conti's is that they start to perish and crack on the sidewall if you don't do a load of miles but they do provde alot of grip and are well worth the money.
