New tires?

Ok, time to replace the stockers. Looking for a good wearing tire. What do you guys recommend? 100% street use, no dirt. Price important. Thanks.

check out the Pirelli Angle ST. Great tire even on the wet, warms up quick too.

Love the Shinko Advance 005. I'm on my second rear 170/60 at 7000 klm's. Front looks good still. They hold well in the rain and even better in the sun.

Falling down is your bodies way of saying you just screwed up.

I've got a Shinko Advance 005 front - works great for me.

Kinda like the looks of these tires, the stockers ran about 7700 miles with some left. Front starting to scallop, rear, worn "flat" spot, but still SOME left. What's your best guesstimate on longevity?

I really like my Avon Storms.

Great price and lightning fast delivery from Two Brothers tires. Call for any tires not mentioned in the online catalog, they have much more than shown online.
