    Default Suggestion for new summer tires

    Hello,

    I am currently in the market for new summer tires. I came off stock all season tires and they were just awfully loud. Even my Ws80s that I have on now are so much quieter..

    Which summer tires would you suggest that is best for my budget?

    My budget is around $500-$600 for new tires. I am willing to pay for new ones for the peace of mind. I will be using my existing rims of 16"s.

    Unless someone is selling a summer set, I wouldn't mind taking a look.

    Thanks!

    I have had Bridgestone potenzas (probably entry level/ less expensive than other potenzas) which came with my car from a dealership on 15" steelies. They were very nice and I would recommend them.

    Nice. I went with the gForce Comp2 because of the higher treadwear rating.

    I bought mine through my parents Costco membership. 225/50/17. I wouldn't recommend it though, they wouldn't install them on my car because it was too different from stock, something about not wanting to be liable. So I just got them to mount and balance the tires on my rims.

    But they ended up installing them the wrong way on half the rims (unidirectional tires). So I had to go to another shop to get that fixed.

    Do you track? Auto-cross, or is this purely for daily driving. Different tires have different operating temps.

    The tires in the following test, can be used for light tracking as well. Keep in mind the tires can become ice-pucks at near freeze temps.

    If you want to consider all seasons

    Personally, I like the Bridgestone Pole Position S04. Awesome in the rain, awesome in the train, and most importantly great feedback.
    I hated my car when I had the Hankook Evo V12 (first gen), I never had confidence in my car with these tires. The Pole-Position though, gave me enough confidence to turn off traction control on the track (S2000).

    I have had them for 2 years. 94W flavour. I find them to be terrible in wet weather. Dry weather is "meh", I would not get them again.
