for what?

off roading? treadwear? performance on street? performance on track?

i have Nexen 3000 tires for the summer. So far, i have nothing bad to say about these tires. The grip really well ( z rated) in both dry and wet. they are pretty cheap and thread is holding up pretty good.
i Dont use them in winter....

205/ 40 / 17 ZR

i loved the tires on my chrome 18's, Wanli 1099-S. had great tread wear i put over 50k miles on them before i sold them and still had quite a few more thousand miles left on them. they hugged the road well too.

Commercial vehicles usually have rubbish tyres fitted as they do so many miles and need replacing rather frequently. The tyres on your dads van spin so well because they are of a harder compound which will make them last as long as possible. If he had softer tyres they wouldn't "spin up" so well, and last less miles, but they'd grip very well!

i apologize for my poor joke. its just that those tires have a skinny sidewall IMO. only 3.2". my tires had a 3.7" sidewall.

i run toyo observe g02 plus for winters, and mich x-one for summers, bro has yokohama geolander at+2 for summer(hard as nails good offroad tire) and blizzack for winter, cant say much bad about any of these combos, you get what you pay for, and then sometimes you pay alot and get some crap. so do some research
