Pirelli Drago P5000. I had these on an ED Ghia, 15x7 rims, tyre size 215/60x15. Handled really well, dynamite in the wet and had done 50,000km when I traded the car. I reckon they still had another 10 to 15,000k's still in them. Price is around the $140 mark each.

Another alternative is Falkens. I've had them before on previous cars and been really happy with them.

Always a favourite subject on these Forums,

It all depends on how much you want to spend.

For a set of good cheap performance tires Hanooks are value for money.

Mid price, you can't go pass Falkens.

If you want to spend big, Dunlops are the go.
