Im in the market for Tires as well... I have the Gforce KDWS on the GXP now, and all I got to say about these tires is that they are a good all around tire!! Handle great in curves and even on wet pavement. I like the Yokohama avid Envigos!!!!

The Yokohama'* are what I ended up going with. No complaints whatsoever. Great ride, excellent handling, and low noise. Oh and wet traction is in short amazing. I highly recommend these tires for GXP owners.

Let us know how they do once tread wears down halfway. That'* where I've seen a lot of tires show their true colors.

The AVID ENVigor'* are what is on my car as of now. We just got a dusting of snow here before I headed home from work and they worked flawlessly. No loss of traction (even when trying to get the Stabilitrak to kick in) Granted from the last set of tires that were on the GXP (Bald as hell) the Yoko'*, or any new tire would probably be a step up. I still do not regret my purchase at all.

Not a problem, I'll get some pics tomorrow in the light and let you take a look. Keep in mind I have 245/45'* on my car, a little lower profile and a little wider. The speedo error is about 1 MPH @ 70 MPH. I really like the look of the smaller sidewall on the car.

The gForce KDWS is indeed an awesome handling tire. My only con is mileage wear. But not enough to kkep me from buying a second set after I boiled the first ones off in 19K miles. The way the car handles and corners makes that acceptable to me. She drives like a dream.

Here,as promised are the tire pictures. They have a nice looking sidewall with an aggressive tread pattern. Oh and good handling, ride, and supposedly good wear as well. Time will tell on that last one.

Nice looking tire with wide deep rain groves. I'm sure they will do nicely.
