It kind of depends on what you're going to use them for (since they suck for drag racing, but are great for auto-x and stuff), but Bridgestone Pole Position S-03's are really good tires and have a pretty good tread rating too.

Goodyears got great reviews in SCC and the Toyo is proven to grip! I recommend those.

What would you go with if it were between the V700 & Khumo MX's? I won a set of khumos from the convention and was thinking about getting the MX's. The V700 would wear faster probably, right?

Thanks man. After reading reviews on tirerack.com, I think I'm going to go with the MX.

Falken Ziex 512's are by far the most underrated tire I know. Have them on my beater. Unbelievable traction, wet or dry. Have them on my specV, same results. Took the stockers off my beater and put them on the beast. Cold night, obviously more power and tires don't heat up as well. Ungodly traction!! I will be purchasing another set here shortly, that makes all my cars wearing those shoes. driverfx.com has 205/45/16 for $68 each.

Shoot, for that price I might have to pick up a set for myself. I've got an extra set of 16's that I'm gonna be buying tires for in the next month or so. Got a question about the tread wear though, how fast do they wear out?
**EDIT**
Oh yeah - is that $68 shipped?

I've got 215/40/17 Falken Azenis ST-115's and I like em alot. Very Quiet, Very smooth, and great traction. Like em so much my sis got some 245/35/19 Azenis ST-115's on her 03 Altima.

khumo's are good traction but thay wear crazy fast... like 8 months. Go with Toyo, good for both, hook up nice and longer life.

Well, I have 711's that came on the car now. They suck, however, they have excellent wear, they are wearing perfetly. I wont get another brand of tire right now, casue if you read my post before me saying I was getting MX's, I wont a free set of 4 khumos at the convention, so Im getting whats free.
