I've had the G009s before and loved them. I will be getting them again, but I may need to get 17 inchers.

Winter 225/60/16



Summer 255/50/17



Incredibly satisfied with both. Far far cry from the stock 235/60/16 Michelin Energy MXV4 Plus

I've been planning on getting those since the summer, hopefully you can review and confirm they dont spin.


they get damn good reviews on tirerack.


Got the avid V4s this last sumer, was able to put down 2.2 60'...want to be able to put down less than that this year.

Nobody has mentioned Michellens yet. I always thought the the Pilots were the best drag radials.

Me too. I just got them on recently.

I love Bridgestones, and so far I love this particular type.
Me 3. I've had these tires on my STE since July of '04. They are awesome in rain, snow, or dry. For the car they are on they are plenty of tire, and at an AWESOME price.

Dayton Daytona 235/55/16'*.
My tire of preference (from experience) is a discontinued model made by Bridgestone. Model is the Potenza RE-910. Older model and no doubt the 750 is probably it'* successor, but I love the RE-910. Had them on an old Dodge Lancer I still own, and on my 1995 SLE SC. I now have pair of them in 235/55/16'* and can't wait to get another pair of silver crosslaces so I can use them only at the track as they are about 75% of what Drag Radials are traction-wise at the strip, IMO. Pulled mid 2.1'* with them on my 95 SLE SC.
