For all season/street only, Falken 512s are decent... soft sidewalls, good ride, decent snow traction. Handle like crap, but excellent for a daily driver. Performance/autoX: Hankook RS2s. Very predictable, reasonable ride, excellent rain tire, about the cheapest performance tire out there, and nothing short of a racing compound will beat it autoX'ing. Not sure how long they'll last... have about 6K miles on mine with 1 open track and 4 autoXs... not quite down to the wear bars yet.

I'm not too familiar with all of these different tire brands, but out of the ones I AM familiar with, I have to go with Falken. They have been doing better than the stock brands that I've had.

I plan on getting the neo-gens this fall. I've read some great reviews and they are under $100 a piece! Right now I've got a set of dunlops, and I have to say that I have been dissapointed. They have started cupping and dont like to stay balanced very long. They've got a little more than 1/8" tread left on them.
