Re: tires

That all depends on what you are looking for and how much you are willing to spend. If you want an all season tire for less than $200 each the answer is going to be different than if you are willing to spend $300+ on a single ultra high performance tire that will never see snow or ice. Let us know what you want in a tire and a price range and I am sure the recommendations will pour in.

Re: tires

yep...let us know what type of tire...all season, ultra, high or street performance.

take a look at www.tirerack.com They will have professional and buyers reviews on all their tires. Excellent place to start.

Re: tires

Well im just looking for any tire you guys would recommend; I'l probably take my new wheels off and put my stock ones back (which have all season tires) on in the snow so they wont be in snow and salt. My price range is basically the best deal I can get. I dont want to get cheapos but I dont want to spend alot. Probably not over 200 a tire unless it is discounted, like buy 3 get one free. I would honestly like to not spend over 500-600 if possible.

Re: tires

If I had a set of wheels with suitable winter tires and a set of 20" wheels just looking for treads, I'd be looking for a set of high performance summer or all-season tires. You should be able to come up with a set in your price range. Take a look at these two:

Personally I am seriously looking at the GY fortera tripletred for when my WK needs new tires. Don't have 2 sets of wheels and would be looking for tires that fit the stock 17" rims. The tripletreds look like a good compromise even though I wish they had a higher speed rating.
