Nice Wheels. I jumped on the Saleens too. I've got the Sumitomo Z rated fromt that Massive Deal. I love them. We drive the car daily and make 100+mph runs for hours at a time on the Autobahn. The tired are very quiet, responsive, and predictable.

If you want extreme street legal summer tires that could be used for a little track time, you can't beat Falken Azenis RT-615 on price and performance. There are newer tires that will perform better but they *probably* don't last as long and definitely cost more.

For dedicated road course tires, you got me there...

I use Goodyear Eagle GS-D3's they are very sticky for a DD. If your reffering to track tires, are you reffering to Rcomps?

Dunlop direzza dz101 are good dd tires and are pretty good grip but the tread wear isn't that great. My set is almost gone after 5 months of track days canyon runs and dd duty but I do these rather frequently so others might have much better wear. Its really really good in the rain. I drove thru 4 inches of standing water and had no issues with car control.

Not the greatest gripping or wearing tire in this size but good for the price. Great for the rain.

I love my BFG gForce sport... nice price too!

my car had Avon Tech M500 tires... British Cooper tires. They were really grippy and I may get them again. very nice price. I went right through them with very aggresive canyon carving though. The BFGs have lasted a lot longer, but I liked the Avon's better.

X2 on the BFGoodrich g-Force Sport. I've beat on them for 3 seasons now and I'm probably gonna have to change this year. They are amazing.
