Never been a fan of the S-Drive. In that class I like the BFG KDW2. The GS-D3 is also very nice if you can track one down. The Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position's are supposed to be nice, but they're too expensive. They cost as much as RE-11's!

I had a Potenza s-04 completely shred from the sidewall...but I'm sure it was just a 1 in a million thing. And whatever you do don't get Toyo's...

ive been rocking yoko es1000....i think...something like that. They are in the shed on my summer rims. But they have been pretty good so far. I havent had much of anything to compare them to.

Hey guys thanks for all your info...I decided on the Continental DWS 215 45 17....didn't completely kill my pocket and they definitely offer a nice ride....I plan on getting something more aggressive when it comes time to take it to the track, but I've still got alot of time before that happens...many mods in the near future.
