Default Tire choices

I cant make up my mind what kind of tires to get... and I want to make choice soon so I can have my rims on the car before I go back to working 70hrs weeks and have no time.. and thats a little over a week away. ...


But I put up a poll with the 2 tires I like and is open to what you guys think and also if You guys have another option.... I need 235/55/17 (think thats correct size )

so please vote or leave what you think would work better/cheaper

Thanks Nick :P

Edit here are links to the tires

I'm a big fan of Toyo. I had two consecutive sets on the Zilla (Proxes TPT) and now run the T1R on that car.

Also very impressed with the Kumho Ecsta ASX on the SLE. Great winter traction, very high reviews for summer traction. I'm looking forward to testing that as well.

Kumho Ecsta ASX
Put them on for winter...worked well. Drives fine on wet and dry pavement. I'm very pleased with them. I've had them on for 3 months now. No complaints.

That'* what I have on my other green car. Great tires. Supposed to be HIGHLY rated for summer traction as well.

Zilla has Toyo T1R'*.
