I was in the exact situation as you, only 16.7's vice 16x8's and I went with the Yokohama AS430. It is V-rated, directional with an all-weather tread. I have successfully ran it in rain, snow, and ice with no complaints. I have not done a track day or anything on them, but they do just fine on all the on and off ramps I have pushed them through way too fast. I believe you would be very pleased with them. I am running ES100's on my mustang and like them as well; I am a Yokohama guy. Although I only run Michelin's on my motorcycle, so there you go.

Subject: Re: TIRES
Oh, did you first look up the GS D3? They are a summer only.
The A/S is very, very new, and quite interesting from what I read.
I have the GSD3. They are downright dangerous below about 35 degrees,
snow or not.
That;'s true of EVERY ultra-HP summer tires. They are not only non-
snow rated, btu get hard int he cold.
That's why I'm pointing out A/S tires that appear to be in the same
league with hgih performance summers.
