[:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)] rate your tires [:)][:)][:)][:)][:)][:)]

So maybe it's been asked and you've already answered but how about we do this for EVERYONES sake.

List your tire make, model and size.
How many miles it lasted or you have on them.
VERY BRIEF subjective opinion if you like or dislike or a glaring problem.

I'll start...


Pirelli P6 Four Seasons OEM
23000 miles with 4/32 tread remaining on all four.
Tread wear BLOWS, winter traction sub par, feel and feedback B+.
Would NOT recommend.

okay i'll follow,,,

i believe mine are the same...
tread wear minimal.... i have just under 10K on them.... winter traction ok, maybe a B+ as well, not a good "pirelli" in my opinion, may recommend for a burner tire or a good cheap tire....

nexen 5000 215/45/17 with 10,000 mi +
rain traction = shit(neighbor has same problem w/ 215/35/18)
wear = pretty decent
overall experience = crappy, at first rotation(about 7,000 miles), vibration in steering wheel, company i bought said flat spots on all 4 (breaks never locked, offered to sell new) dealership says defect from factory on 2 tires, other guys won't help me out = asses. ive heard they are decent from a rep at the dealership who has them although the lack of traction in rain is a little unerving.

not sure if ill stay with this brand

GF goodrich Gforce sport
good traction if it's not gravel or snow
they were on the car when I bought it.
Good performance tire and ride nice for a Z rated, but too noisy on the freeway
would recommend for people who like a nosy freeway ride

here are two:

BFG gForce Sport
Loves em!
great grip, great treadwear. 15K so far and I'm about half way there after continued hard street driving

Avon Tech M500 (British Cooper tires)
good and bad
great grip, great price
tread wear was pretty bad with hard street abuse. I only got about 15K on them, but they were great while they lasted, wet and dry grip, light weight.
