    I got some yoko es100's. (215/40/17)
    http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires....e1=yes&place=0
    Drove normal for 2 weeks after i got them. Then i got bored and tried to see when they would break loose. And found out they do NOT stick to the pavement like my goodyears did. This was on dry cool pavement. You get what you pay for i guess. The f1's were about 150 a tire, these are 100 a tire. I purchased these because they were recommended by a friend and the reviews on tire rack seemed good. I did not expect them to perform the same as a tire costing 50$ more, but i did expect more out of them.

    Right now im not sure if they are just too new or whats going on. I had my alignment done and everything checked out good after i put them on. I can only push the car about 50% compared to what i use to take turns on with my old tires.
    It also hard to tell when these are holding at their limit or going to completely break loose. But trying to drive these the same as i did with my old tires around turns is obviously not working.
    I am very disappointed with the performance of these tires. And judging from driving these on wet pavement, they are down right dangerous and i do not trust them to hold.
    Im going back to my goodyear f1's for my next set of tires. And i will never go back to any other tire.

    michelin pilot sports kick pretty much all other DOT tires' asses in grip, predictability, and ride nose. the ps2s are even better, so i definitely suggest either.

    Oh yeah man... The Eagle F1-GS is an awesome tire. Hard to match for sidewall stiffness and overall grip/ load stability. But hard ride on the F1-GS, something about that kevlar sidewall.

    I'll second that... I'm running the Ventus HR2's and have been happy with them... had my left-front tire go bad and had to replace it, but I think that was just because I let it run too low on pressure last winter. Other than that, they work well, and I've driven them in the rain enough to know that they don't have any problems gripping the road.

    ventus hr2s suck in my opinion. had them on the VW and they were a bit loud and lose grip really early.

    Default Nitto NeoGen Review

    Here is an initial review on the Nitto NeoGen. I got them during the Discount Tire website sale. So they cost me just under $200. When I got the mount/balance done they balance very well and needed little weight. The installer was pretty impressed.

    I've got a bit over 1K miles on them now. Took a 600 mile round trip with them after the 1st week they installed. Mostly dry weather driving but have tested them in rain and standing water.

    The tread pattern looks pretty neat. Not that it really matters. They ride very smooth and quiet on the street and highway at speed. They have good turn in response and don't feel mushy. The sidewalls are definitely not as stiff as some of the other tires I was considering, like the RT615. In rain I feel no difference in response. In standing water they don't hydroplane. Under braking they feel fine. Also the overnight temps here dropped close to freezing. They get just a bit of flat spotting over night but it goes away almost immediately. They don't turn into rocks in the cold.

    I was supposed to do an autocross this weekend but have to bail on it so I won't get to test them right now. We're looking to do a fun, no points event in early December so I might still get to flog them a bit pretty soon.

    So far so good. I like them for daily driver duty.

    My buddy picked up a FULL 10 SECONDS on his AX car (1969 Datsun 2000) This last AX 2 weeks ago.
    He switched over to (I believe) A Falken 700 tire. Barely D.O.T legal
    Amazing tire, he had to do a refresher on learning to drive his car again because they grip so well. After a couple trash runs he got the hang of it and ran consistent times and took 1st and 2nd in class .
    Shipped and heat cycled from Tire Rack for $500. Not bad for a race tire.

    Yeah I'm confused too...

    Falken doesn't make a 700 anything. Their best tire is the RT-615. High performance street tire. They're very good for AX or track if you want a tire you can drive to the track and race.

    Kumho makes 3 competition tires. Shadowlife25. Here is a link. Which one?

    http://www.kumhousa.com/tires/passenger/competition.do

    Getting 10 seconds improvement on an AX course is not just tires. I have yet to see a tire change that got me even half that. Jumping from an RT-615 street tire to a Kumho V710 or Hoosier A6 I would expect about 4 seconds. If the street tire was shot and the race tire was new then maybe 6 seconds.

    10 seconds says he either got better at driving or got runs on the course on crap tires and then switched to competition tires. Just one "feel out the course" run can make a big difference on run #2. Man I wish I could knock 10 seconds off my lap times at VIR with a fresh set of tires. I could nail the track record for my class

    Kumho 711 (now discontinued)
    Overall: good tire
    Noise: medium
    Grip: pretty good, not the best in wet.
    Wear: about 30k miles, and its about time for new (keep in mind I don't drive hard)

    Yokohama Prada spec 2
    Overall: Love them
    Noise: good
    Traction: always good
    Wear: Haven't put much mileage on them (on the black turbo celi that I hardly ever drive.)

    I really like the Yoko's I will probably get them for my next set to replace the kumhos
    Right, Brilliant, Cheers!

    Love e'm. Sidewall seems to be really stiff, i don't get any wallowing feeling anymore compared to the ASXs that i've habitually run in the past. The grip is flat out freaking insane. I found myself TRYING to break them loose on the Dragon, and couldn't without fear of committing hari kari with my passenger in the car.

    Haven't really tested wet grip much.

    CAVEAT: These DO NOT grip extraordinarly well when cold, or even cool. The road noise is pretty bad. They have to be heated up, until then expect to hear a lot of complaining from them, and a mildly twitchy rear end when hooning around.

    Definitely would buy again.

    Has anyone had Toyo Proxes 4? I have always wanted to try them out.
    I had Kumho Powerstars on my ST last summer, they were good for the price (about 60 a piece) and they did very well in the rain. Handling was a bit difficult to tell since my Celica had such beastly body roll.

    The Proxes 4 I've driven on and weren't too thrilled with them. I mean they're a good daily driver tire, but even then they seemed noisy. Figured it should grip well and be noisy or last forever and be quiet. They didn't work well either way. Although I haven't owned them seems like customer cars get around 50-60K of simple driving, so life isn't bad considering they grip better than most.

    I've gotta agree with him on this. I've been pulling some awesome times w/ the Ventus RS2s.

    Size: 245/45R16

    Also, by weight mounting the tires (yellow dot to the valve stem) on my SSR Comp Cs I used all of 10grams of weight for 4 tires! And that was 10grams on 1 tire! Hurray less weight!

    I love my Falken RT615's. Grip hard, super stiff sidewall, low noise. With the shallow tread depth and lack of meaningful grooving I wouldn't trust them in a heavy downpour. My Celi is not my daily driver.

    I rate these tyres as far as daily driver duties go (I wouldn't use them for autocross etc!) I use them on the GT4 and on my Holden Ute (Pontiac G8 Sport Truck ) - on the Holden I got 55000km of relatively hard all weather, city & freeway driving. They work well in the wet and dry and aren't too noisy on our roads (we have coarse chip tar seal mostly) compared to most other similar tyres.

    For sure there are better tyres out there for noise and grip but as a real world daily driver tyre these work well.

    I just discovered a tire called Strata, model ZENO.


    I heard some good things about them and are priced relatively the same as Wan-Li's (Cannon's tires)

    Ratings are 400 AA 92H

    I found a set of mesh style 18's that are used for $250 that I can get when I get home and I just want to get a set of tires on there that will be decent.

    Seriously, the most aggressive driving I'll do in a year is the Dragon...and that's it.

    I currently have BF Goodrich Touring T/A because they were the only 205/55/15 tires in an 100 mile radius,
    Awesome wet handling, respectable dry.
    but in a year i have had to buy 7 of them- 4 original and 3 replacements. 1 i put a nail through the sidewall? 2 just popped.
    I wouldn't recomend them just because of that reliability issue, and they arn't cheap $100 per tire. But the wet and winter handling is fantastic with them the dirt traction is good too (live on a dirt road).

    Handle speed very well however wear quite rapidly. A big drawback however is city driving. These tires are fragile on pothole infested inner city streets . We popped 2 tires in potholes in about 3000 miles of driving. Although One happened on I-95 a hole in the middle lane in front of RI hospital. That tire was well worn after only 3000 miles.
    I noticed extreme wear on the front tires so I decided to order some new ones. These tires hold the road great but I wanted something that I can use in the winter. I went with the new all season p zero. I managed to get 15k out of these. I wanted to get more but I wore clear through to the steel cords . Finally got a flat today. Guess I'll have to get the new ones mounted. They're 215 /40/17.http://www.celicatech.com/forums/att...tid=1332&stc=1
