Michelen? Performance tires? News to me.

Falken'* have a good rep. As do Yoko'*. Try to go for a directional tread design. No compromises. Having the siped (AFTERmarket, not molded) would help alot too.

Look at the Toyo Proxes TPT. I love that tire. It'* treated me VERY well. Directional tread, great tread life, great sticky to the roady.
