Tires for 11 gt

Think I'm going to take advantage of the deals on AM for tires. I have the factory 19 inch rims. May just go with the Pirelli's, but I was wondering if anyone has run both the Pirelli and the Sumitomo's and could compare and contrast. Was there enough of an increase in grip to justify the shorter tread life?

Tires for 11 gt

Stock pirillis are junk, the nittos, mts, or the sumis that AM offers would be a big jump in drivability for a dd. All 3 will hook 10x better than the pneros. And get about the same tread life.

I'll be switching to Michelin AS3'S, heard good things about them. Give them a look, I've heard they outperform some summer only tires

For street tires I swear by the MT street comps.

I went with Bridgestone pole position s-04. Couldn't be happier so far. Great price, real grippy, and quiet. I'll check in after a few thousand miles.

Next time you're looking for tires, use the TireRack.com website to read all the customer reviews, feedback, and tire specs; tons of useful information.

Buy the best tire you can afford, as you will get what you pay for.
