So I need a new set of tires soon, and I'm not sure what I want to go with. I have Toyo Proxes 4 right now, and I've been pretty happy with them. But they're starting to get a little worn and need to be replaced soon. What tires are you guys using, and how do you like them? Anyone hear anything good about a specific tire?

Here are my recommendations (regardless of budget):

Summer tires:
Bridgestone Potenza S03 Pole Positions (EXCELLENT wet)
Goodyear Eagle F1 GS-D3 (EXCELLENT wet)
Michelin Pilot Sports

All seasons:
Bridgestone Potenza RE950
Kumho HP4 (cheap, but well rounded and good mileage)

Sears, Strauss Auto (NYC), perhaps Pep Boys? I found my Kumhos at SEARS not a bad prices which included installation/balance/removal-you just have to shop around and catch a Sears flyer.

Or you can also use your powers of persuasion and bring an advertisement with you to SEARS from somewhere else-and haggle.

-not bad for a less $ alternative, good mileage & good in rain.

I've had Kumho Ecsta's on my last car. Those tires last me longer than the stock KDW's ... AND they were cheaper. They were sticky as hell ... I'm gonna go for those next.

I'm only on my 4th month and I already need to replace my front tires, soon. No burnouts AND only 1 day at the track on these tires.

i've had them for about two years, probably about 15k on them. but it's been a hard 15k! they're not done, i have another couple of thousand miles left, but i'm starting to look as it takes me forever to choose a tire.

We are past the point where we will even attempt to go down the track on streets, but its getting a little silly on the street. The tires used to have amazing grip, but it just seems now that they lost some of it... I mean you floor it in second and you get uncontrollable spin that will continue into third... Even if you floor it low in third it will torque steer and get a little squirrley as soon as it boosts...

Amy used to be able to knock off consistent low 60's on these tires... They just don't seem the same...

I was torn between the F1 GS-D3 and the Toyo T1-S when I was shopping around. They're both excellent wet tires. I went with the Toyo because of the higher tread wear rating. Although I don't push them too hard, I like them a lot.
