And add another to your list of tires. Toyo Proxes TPT tires are VERY good, and have directional tread.
Bill those tires of yours are just plain sexy as well...VERY nice Toyos are excellent
Thank you sir.

These are without a doubt the best tires I've ever owned. And they're even better siped.

First you need to decide what you want from the tires.
Tires are like tools, right one for the job and all is good, wrong one not so good.

Go look at the different online tire shops and use their selectors, this should help you with the “classification” that suits your needs. (Max-performance summer, grand touring, all season, etc…)
Then research the different manufacturer’* offerings in that class.

A lot of work but worth it.

My top 5 are:

GoodYear Assurance TripleTred
GoodYear Assurance ComfortTred
Michelon HydroEdge
Michelon Harmony
Cooper Lifeliner STE

Yeah, each is about $110 each...but if they last 80k.....

I'm also getting PowerSlot rotors for the front and some decent ceramic pads. The rears are fine so they can wait until next year. lol

get the tripletreds, they stay glued to the road in any weather condition
I agree!!! My wife has the triple treads on her car and had amazing control in the snow last winter. I wish they made them in my size for my 2K ssei.... Thus I will probably go for the Pirelli P Zero Nero'* in the next few months.

You could always go with 225'*. Those would probably be nicer since they are a little skinnier.

Exactly, that'* why I like having 2 sets of wheels. Go with something that'* a all-season, not precisely great at anyone type of condition/use, but is good in all categories.
