Did you purchase those rims already?

If so, how are they?

Re: what tires

if traction is an issue with a 305 wide tire, you could go with nittos

if its a v6, it shouldn't be though. What kind of budget are you on. BFG KDs seem pretty nice. I think i read they are kind of noisy though. If you want something fairly cheap, the sumitomos i have are cheap and good tires. Do some reading on tirerack.

Pirelli's are overpriced and overrated. Listen to Spec and get the Yokos.

Re: what tires

^^ I like having good traction, very nice looking set of tires, and tires that give me 40k miles of tread and for a cost of 120-125 each you cant beat them. (I have 275/40/17's for price comparison by size)

Re: what tires

yea, those yoko's are nice. My friend has them on his turbo 300z. I do like my summitomos. They are not really sticky but I should get good mileage out of them. Don't get me wrong, they stick a lot better than stock, but i can't just dump the clutch at 4k and give 90% throttle and expect them not to spin.

Re: what tires

I'm sticking with my bfgoodrich's, they hold extremely well from a stop and handling is a dream. I have a little over 5k on these now, about to do my first rotation and I haven't noticed any wear at all on them. I'm sure there's a little but by this time on every other set of tires I'm starting to see noticable wear by now. I'm definitely not driving easy on them either.

Re: what tires
