I like Hankooks HRII H405'* but I'm more concerned about wet traction then all out dry traction... they seem to grip better in the wet and dry then the kumho 712'* and atleast here they are a lil cheaper.

for all out street performance I'd look at Pirelli or BFG'* G Force T/A series.

Default Say No to DUNLOP SP2

I know it said that you were looking for Z-rated tires, but if you were even thinking about the Dunlops I mentioned above, it would be easier to just take $800 out of your wallet and throw it out the window. These tires suck on an SSEi. My front tires wore down to NOTHING inless than a yearand only 15000 miles. Moved the back to the front, and those wore down in 5 months and only 12000 miles. Do not waste your money.

I like anything by BF Goodrich. I run Traction T/A'*, but I've heard the Radial T/A'* are pretty good. I've put them on vettes, ta'*, and camaroes for guys at work.

I liked the t/a'* a few years ago too but today they suffer from poor traction in the rain and they wear out quick.
