    These are probably the best DR out right now......longevity is a different issue as they're very soft.....but you will hook like a mofo fosho.

    There are two kinds. ET Streets are usually for the Track and ET Streets DR.

    I run ET Streets at the track and ET Streets DR on the street.

    Sorry.
    I was refering to the DR's.
    Post was kinda a joke though. Hope he doesn't look for those in snowy climates.

    Toyo Proxes 4

    I have TOYO Proxes 4, 275/40ZR17 and they are excellent, especially in the wet.

    They are alll season tires. In Ottawa there is feet of snow in the winter so I use snow tires from Nov-Apr

    Now would be a good time to look for some rims and ditch the 16"

    if your not afraid of "preowned" you might be able to pick up a set of rims and tires for not much more that new 17" tires would run.............

    Seperate summer and winter tires is the way to go. Even in the cold without the snow the summer tires get crappy for traction. I'm running gs-d3's 18" summer and Eagle Ultra Grip GW3's 16" for the winter. This works great and it doesn't take long to swap tires this way. Goodyear Assurace Tripple Tread or Perrelli P Zero Nero M&S are both good if your on a buget and don't want to swap tires.
