    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 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?
