Re: tires

not 215/35 on 17s!! noooo!

that'll throw your speedo way out!! you want 215/50 or 235/45 on 17s

what tyres are you buying right now? ones for 17s? or 14s? 15s?

Re: tires

how much are you willing to pay? are you buying tyres just to get wheels on the car? is money an object?

i got WANLI s1099 tyres for 145 each(mega special, dont expect any less than 160ea).. they're a copy of yokohama AVS sport(check my car pics, you can see tread pattern in one).. pretty decent tyre too, as they beat my bridgestone potenzas on 15" for sheer lateral grip(-that could be attrib. to the upg to 17" rim. same performance on accel/brake).


otherwise cheapies are barum,nankang,soyo..(i havent used these.. but they're cheap)

good ones are bridgestone.. havent had experience with any other tyres so i wont judge them.

Re: tires

ah.. are you lookin to buy expensive tyres?

start off with cheapies, then when you're confident with the handling of 17" rims you can get the good rubber and really appreciare it, instead of being too afraid of hitting kerbs.

thats what i'm doing.. i'll be buying some $300ea+ tyres next round..
