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. :D

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.

Thanks, I'll look into these. They look good at first glance.

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....

All the consumer rating are 5 star AND they have a 60K mile warranty. Can't beat that
