I just found out that I have a nail in my tire. I am going to get it plugged but the tires are at about 35% so they need to be changed anyway. What is a good all season performance style tire?

I am going to getting some new wheels and tires hopfully soon...I and I would be using the stock wheels and these tire just for the winter months. We dont get much snow here. Just dont want salt on my new wheels.

Any suggestions of tires would be great. Any good or bad experiences with tires would also be appreciated. Thanks.

I've had personal experiance with the Toyo Proxes 4 and Falken RT-615

The Proxes are the all seasons out of the two and I would say they are pretty good.
Much improved in the rain over stock, much improved in the dry over stock. They grip decently well, way better then stock, but nowhere near the Falken's (summer tire.)

I've had them about 6k miles so I can't comment on treadlife although they are rated at 300, the same as stock.

I'm sure there are some other all-season tires that falken or kuhmo or any other brand that is comparable or better.

That being said, utilize the search button before you buy anything

Goodyear Eagle F1 GS D3. amazing wet traction, great dry traction too. they're a summer tire, but like i said, wet traction is off the board. only thing is they're real expensive

Yeah, I looked at those until I saw the price tag. haha

I was looking at those as well as the comparable Falken tires. I have had a very good experience with Falkens as well and I leaning toward them. Thanks for the info thought guys. keep it coming.

I went through a set of Nitto NeoGens and a set of Pirelli PZero Nero M&S (both 205/45/16) on my Integra, and bought my RSX with Bridgestone Potenza RE960AS Pole Positions on the stock rims. Of the two sets I used up, the Nittos probably had a little better dry grip initially, but they wore out significantly quicker and wet traction died of even earlier. I got about 10k more miles out of the Pirellis, and wet traction didn't seriously drop off until they were almost to the wear bars. Hard to make a direct comparison to the Bridgestones on a different car, but I'd guess they are close to the Pirellis.

Ive been running the Yokohama AVID W4S's and they have been great in wet/dry conditions. I havent gotten a chance to test them in light snow, but these are only summer wheels anyways. The tires are also budget friendly. $106 each on tirerack.com

I also just bought a set of Bridgestone Potenza Grid's to mount on my winter ITR's. Havent tested them out yet, but im lookin forward to see how they ride. $111 each on tirerack

Both All-Season tires

I think I'm going to go with the Falken Ziex 512's. I know that they are been discontinued for another tire but there are a few things I like about the 512 that the 912 doesn't have. They are small things but still.

Does anyone have these tires I am speaking of? Any info on em?

I have wanted the BFG g-force for a while. The ones that Chip Foose uses for almost all his cars. They are sick but it says on the site they are summer tires. I heard they dont even do good in the rain! Just dry...

I just recently had the dual compound Diablo Corsa III's put on my bike. Amazing tires. Felt like a brand new bike man!
