Guys, what is the latest wisdom on high performance street tires in the
15" size? I was browsing around on Tire Rack and was confused by the
dizzying array of brands that don't seem to be the same as the last time
I went out there...
Many eons ago I had Bridgestone RE71s on my '88 80. I loved those tires!
But I didn't have a set of track wheels then and chunked them pretty
badly. My Alfa friends convinced me to try Yoko AVSis -- but those didn't
last long either. So I went to the old Dunlop SP Sport 5000s .... but the
Dunlops picked up nails in all 4 tires just a few months after I bought
them and I figured that brand had been hexed. I switched to the very cheap
Kumho Ecsta 712. And even though those tires make driving an "adventure"
(aka white knuckles, esp. in the rain), I've kept driving them because
they still had a lot of tread.
So, the Kumhos have finally worn out. Looking for recommendations on
205/50 15s.... Anyone out there still on 15" rims? Please, no
recommendations for the lavender-scented tires that Kumho now offers ha
