So I've decided I need new shoes for the car, I hate the dunlops plus one of mine has a major chunk out of it from what I have no clue I don't recall any time that I've hit any curbs. Anyway I was thinkin about the Falkens. SilverBullet had these on his SC2 and I loved them. Anyone recommend me a good sticky tire. I'm gonna need a small personal loan to put all new tires on but its needed heh.

Bridgestone Potenza Pole Position S-03's. It's a mouthfull, but oh my god they are BAD (good bad, not bad bad) tires!! I used them for ~20,000 (hard) miles, and they still had a bit of tread left when i blew the engine in my cavalier. I love those tires though, so sticky you can hear all sorts of small rocks hiting the underside of your car, and they are AMAZING in the rain. Probably the best tires i've ever used in the rain, and most definitely the best i've ever used on dry roads.

The only problem I have with the soft compound performance tires out there are that the tread life on them isn't very good. I'm fast approaching 20K on my Red Line and barely have any tread life on the rear tires, then again the boneheads at Saturn of Hurst forgot to rotate my tires when I'd bring my car in for service.......

The front tires wear much faster than the rear,if your rear are worn sounds like they used to be in front

I'm thinking what I'll do is go to my old elementary school and steal the tires that they had on some merry-go-round thing. I never heard of those things having a blow out or anything.........:D

They wear out really fast for a daily driven car. I vote for the BFG KDW2s.
Really? I've got 12,000 on mine and a few "spirited" driving events (including a school) and I still have plenty of tread. Great tire. The new Azenis RT615 is supposed to be even better.
