Hey gang,

my pirelli tires on the 17 in hyper rims are worn out! What tires do you recommend. Dealer wants 500$ for the pirelli. Thanks

Cooper Zeon RS3-A is a great all season in my opinion.
If I could go summer only I would go Potenzas.

Like Trunkout says, the hottest tire for extreme summer performance with autocrossers is the Bridgestone Potenza 71R. Getting mine put on tomorrow.

At nearly 32k miles on my 2012 Abarth - and in anticipation of driving from NorCal down to SoCal on Sunday - I broke down and bought bf Goodrich 205 45 R16s and had 'em put on yesterday. So far, so good.

i am happy with michelin pilots A/S better riding than the zeros and longer lasting.

I just had Bridgestone Potenza RE760 installed. Anything is better than the factory Pirellis. I got $100 discount and free shiping from Discount tire off of ebay. Lot better deal than Tire Rack this time.

I just changed my Toyo R1 (third set) to the Potenza 71R on the recommendation of racers at m track. I've had two full track days at MSR and can say they are fantastic! Highly recommended. Texas Mile coming up April 1-3.

I have 500 miles on Yokohama S drives and they seem quieter and less fidgety than the original Pirelli zeros. I got mine at Tire rack and put them on locally, $500 total with lifetime rotation and balance.

Anybody gone through a set of the BFG's yet? Just wondering on the wear?

Same I went with after trying Kuhmos. Completely happy with my Coopers and will be doing them again when the time comes.

I also run Cooper Zeon RS3-A mostly because it was ridiculously cheap after some major rebate stacking from DTD. $195 shipped to my door for all 4 factory 17" size. I use them to commute about 80 miles a day. They are quiet and seems to be wearing great even after 10,000 miles. I would buy recommend them.
