Best tires you've used

Needing some tires for the chrome saleens I'm about to get. I do a lot of both wet and dry driving. I was looking at BFG KDW2 or Continental ExtremeContact DW tires but wanted to see your guys' opinions

Front: 265/35-18
Rear: 295/35-18

I am on my 3rd set of tires with 11 GT, so far the best tire I have used are the Nitto Invo. For everyday driving they handle great and in the wet weather I have had no problems taking off or stopping. The 2 deep grooves on the inside of the tire seems to help quite a bit when it is raining.

How's the treadwear on them? I've done some research and I've heard you can actually rotate them side to side.

Kdw2 last forever and have great wet and dry traction. Just put the conti's on the gt and honestly don't have near the traction.

Best by far are the r888's I have on the cobra. Pricey though

Yeah I've heard that about KDW's and those Toyo's are mean but like you said are very pricey!

So far so good, yes you can go side to side. They are not directional tires.

I'm running Bridgestone Potenza S04 Pole Positions, these hook up and corner fu**n awesome, wet traction is also fantastic, these are summer tires and a little pricy but you get what you pay for, IMO.

I've always just stuck with "Eagle F1" never had any problems with them, they are nice and sticky off the line and around the corners, dry or wet roads.

Apparently you've never driven a car on good tires...
