I have Yokohama S-Drive tires on my 18's and I'm really happy with them. Have had them for almost 10K miles with no problems.

Toyo Proxes4 - one of the best all seasons I've tried so far, though it has a fault - not much stopping power in the snow, ABS goes crazy.

Re: Post up youR tires.. (kitkat)

Bridgestone Potenza Re760 Sport - higher treadwear (340) than the Pirellis and the highest rated ultra high performance summer tire on the Tire Rack... got around 1,000 miles so far and they perform up to my expectations. i don't track my R and couldn't see spending $1500 on a set of Goodyears or Michelins, so i got these. they look sharp too.

S60R - Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 - brand new. Installed today.<p>C70 - Michelin Pilot Exalto PE2 - 2nd set. Awesome Tires! Wish they made it for the R. IMO, best bang for the buck with performance and tread wear. 47,000 miles out of the last set.

Nokian WR G2 hands down best snow/wet traction for non studded tire. not a race tire by any means great daily driver decent roll resistance.

Bridgestone RE960 Pole Positions....245/45/17 w/5mm spacers.<p>I love these tires, always ran bridgestones on my volvos. <p>But you're not going to see anybody complain about their tires here unless they are running the stock pirelli's.

Re: (T5 for Life)

I have to say I liked my stock Pzero's, they stuck well, they needed replacement frequently, and stayed balanced. Missing them now that I'm running the Goodyear's (F1). Michelin's next time, they seem to stay round better when driven over 100mph and long sweeping turns daily.

Re: (FineProperty)

For summer tires I have General Exclaim UHP's. A fairly inexpensive tire, and with a high wear rating, a great combination for how much I drive in the summer months. Even did well on the track, although not the ideal choice for a track tire I'm sure. Very much worth the money!<p>Winter tires are Pirelli P6's. I know they're an all season, but I they did pretty well in some of the odd Kenucky winter weather. And I must say, they were pretty damn good on the icy roads during the ice storms. We will see how I feel about them after a Colorado winter!<p>
