Hey Everyone,<BR>I've got an 850 T-5R sedan, and right now i'm not getting a little too bit wheel spin for my liking and i know i need some better tires once spring comes around, however they should be pretty good in the rain since i'll be in oregon all summer and it's bound to rain a bit.<BR>I have heard of the Potenza S-03's<BR>The Pirelli PZeros, the 6000s, the 7000's<BR>heard of tons.<BR>When i bought my car, they had Toyo Proxes FZ4's, which are alright,but not too great for wheelspin, fine on rain

I'm a newb, and this might not be what you're looking for, but I've been running on Yokohama AVS db tires on my '96 854T, and I really like them. I had AVS Intermediates, and they stuck to the road/track very well, but were murder in the wet. The AVS db tires are s/b really quiet, which they are, but they handle great too. I've never tried the tires you asked about tho, so can't compare them.. only can compare them to the AVS-Ints and the handling difference vs each other is negligable.<P>my 2cents...<P>
