Im running Kumho 711's and so far, im pleased with them. I paid 71 dollars a piece for them, so about 309 balanced and mounted. They stick like glue in corners. I've not squalled a tire yet and even dumping the clutch they hardly spin. Love the tires and the looks.

the goodyear eagle RS-As arent really anything special, it is easy to spin them, get into four wheel drifts, and swing the back out, they also lock up in the rain if you press about half way down on the brakes... soooo.. id say ok performance summer, poor wet performance

for my next set i want to get some kumho mx700s, good looking tread very sticky and good treadlife

I had Falken Azenis Sports, the stickiest road tire so far for me. Very noisy and the tread pattern doesn't lend itself to straight line stability or any hint of all weather capability, but on dry pavement-WOWIE ZOWIE! I believe these are the tires that won there class in auto x at the Nationals. I was using them on an 02 wrx with size 225-45-17, but I'm sure they would improve many other cars too like the focus.

Perelli bought a Saleen S7 and use it to advertise the pzerros

now don't get me wrong i think Perelli makes the best motorcycle tire you can buy, but for a car i think they are not as good as a falken or a yokohama. but like i said a damn good motorcycle tire!!!
do you kiss your mother with that mouth????

Those are the same tires I have stock. I'm not too happy with them. The tread has seemed to disappear and I had a tiny nail go through. I've only got 16,000 miles on these babies and it's about time to change them out.
