i just made a thread too (w/ pics & vids) check the autocross section. i need tires too and everyone kept recommending the kuhmos which sounds like a great idea. i ran STS though.

When I used to autocross I ran with Brigestone Potenza RE-750's, I liked them but I have never seen anyone else run with them.

All the ST classes are street-tire classes, and the standard is the Azenis.
