What's a good street tire?

I bought some Goodyear SR-A's about 2.5 yrs ago and now my fronts are quite bald.... They are 235/65r17

I like the look of a bit wider tire, maybe 245 or 255. But I'm not going for an offroad look so not much taller. And I don't want them to rub.

I'd like an aggressive street tire that won't bald in 27K miles and can handle some higher speeds.... Haha

Try and keep the suggestions under $150 a pop.

Re: What's a good street tire?

I'd also be interested! Everyone seems to go for the off road tires. I'm interested in a summer set for my new 20 reps.

Re: What's a good street tire?

Watch out for yoko...I've heard they are awesome and all, but that they only lasts like 10k miles, due to it's soft rubber compund.
I just got myself a set of Pirelli Scorpion Zero's, 255/60/17. Pure maddness. They completely changed my ride....
