I still have my OEM Advans...almost 9000 miles on them, but they are toast...the tires are AMAZING, but you gotta have the budget to keep them...look to Nitto...although I was able to buy some from another forum member for 700 with only 2k on them, so Nittos will be Summer 2011....

So what are the best tires to get for DD/occasional spirited driving for rain/dry/80s almost everday dips down to 50 lowest ive seen here in hawaii. Also i think Hawaii is like k2nd or 3rd for shittiest roads. Id like to get some rims but thatll probably be in a few years. I will be going back to kansas in 3 years so ill need 2 sets of tires/rims when that happens.

My Hankook V12's suit me just fine. There's a pretty good tire review from one of the big car mags that you can find on google. The Hankooks were best in the rain and had close to the highest lateral g's in dry and wet. They are nice DD tires IMO, and have plenty of grip (I run 265's) but won't be quite as responsive as more extreme tires like NT05's or Star Specs. NT05's are downright scary in the rain though. Living in Hawaii, I'd go Hankooks.

Yepper. My 265's were about $160 I think. Here's that review I was talking about earlier: http://www.caranddriver.com/reviews/...mparison_tests

I'd consider the Dunlop Star Specs, too. Rain grip is un-touchable. They aren't as expensive at the Nitto's (by a few bucks anyway) and are an awesome handling tire for warmish+ climates. They are about the same noise as stock. Also, the Dunlops come with more tread depth than the NTO5.

Actually the Star specs are far more expensive in my experience.

Dunlop Direzza Sport Z1 Star Spec Size: 245/40ZR18 $195 each Think those would be a better option? Whats the difference between 245 and 265 thats the width right? Is there any advantages of going with the 265 over the stock 245 with the stock GSR rims?
