Anyone know a good set of street tires for a performance sedan? I have Kumho ECSTA ASXs being put on as I type this. I had Kumho ECSTA Supra 712s on before that, but they gave off a TON of noise for some reason. :banghead:
I've always had a good experience with Michelin's Pilot Sport performance
line. Good tire on dry or wet without the tire noise that many other
performance brands have. You'll pay considerably more than your Kumhos, but
tires are something no one should go cheap on.
My personal favorites are BFGoodrich TA-KDWS. They have great streetability and always score high on performance tests
I've had good results with Cooper Corbra's...then again I haven't tried the
Kuhmo's so I couldn't honestly give a comparison. Keep in mind, my car is
in the vacinity of 3600-3800lbs with me in it.
I was able to pull a 2.2 60' time at Atco raceway on these rather skinny 225/60R15 Cobras with a stock convertor and a little wheelspin...not too bad. Wet weather traction is also very good.
