Falken FK-451. Great summer only tire. Just don't use it when it gets cold or snows.

I've been really impressed with my ContiSportContact's. I'm pretty sure SVT's come with these from the factory. They have amazing dry traction and almost just as good in the rain, it's pretty incredible. They're even a little dated so have a look at ContiSportContact 2's Have fun, there's only about a million choices out there!

Those KDW's from BF Goodrich look sweet. They're my first choice for when I get the 17" Kazera's. I just got 4 BF Goodrich traction t/a's V rated for my stock 16" rims. 205/50/16 ran me $600 balanced and installed. They seems pretty good so far, stiffer sidewall than the original Pirelli P6's, which I've read nothing but bad reviews about. The P6's were rated for 50k miles, mine failed to pass Massachusetts inspection last week, so I needed to replace them. Only had 39k miles on them though, 80% life expectancy. The new Traction T/A's are rated for 60k miles. I do drive pretty aggressively though, no burn outs really, but good hard cornering. The SVT suspension kit definatly helped handling. Now I can keep up with the SVT boys who spent WAY MORE than I did for their cars, and I get the same handling for $250 bux. Love it.

But the BF Goodrich's are great, and I can't wait for new rims too and def. going to go with the KDW's

Summer tire? I went with a Kumho Ecsta ASX but it's all-season. It's held up fairly well and would have held up much better if I could get someone who knows what they're doing to align my car....inside edges of my front tires are bald but plenty of tread elswhere. They feel good on the road and are quiet too.

Gforce sports or Nitto Neogens might work pretty well.

Toyo Proxes4s or Falken 512s. I know they're both all season but they rock!
