Go to www.tirerack.com and there is a wealth of information in there, especially in being able to compare tires against each other.

I have been reading quite a bit about tires for the Bonnie and the two tires that get the consistantly good reveiws are the altra high performance Perelli PZero Nero M+* ($119) and the grand touring summer kumho Ecsta KH11 ($98 ). As a matter of fact, these are the only two that get consistantly good reviews by people who purchased them (tirerack.com).

I had been trying to decide whether or not to post this, as I don't want to take business away from anyone, but rather just provide more options to people. I buy my tires at a local tire warehouse. They provide the tires for all the local dealers and tire companies. They also ship nationwide. If you know what tire you want, give them a call and see if their price is better than what you can get elsewhere. If you're not sure, tell them what you want from the tire, and they'll recommend something for you. I've been able to save myself money by going to them, and have yet to be dissatisfied. I've been dealing with them for about 15 years.

The place is RHD Tire Wholesalers. Their toll-free number is 1-800-632-8724. Ask for Kevin, he'* currently running the business for his dad.

I don't work for them, nor get anything from referalls. They ship via UPS and will ship it wherever you'd like.

That'* another option for people to think about. The reason I liked Tire Rack is that you can read people'* reviews of particular tires and use that information to help make up your mind. Granted, you see more negatives than positives no matter which tire you look at but their reviews helped steer me away from several tires.

Does anyone own the Perelli'* P Nero Zero, and if so, what kind of mileage should I expect from them (approximately). I am thinking of putting these on mine.

I have been running with Pirelli P Zero Scorpions on my Firebird for about 6 years now.
A very good tire IMO.
