    According to tirerack.com, an 11.5" tread width is the widest street tire in the 315 / 35 / 17 size - having said that, the Goodyear Eagle F1 GS-D3

    I can't knock these...I'm on my 3rd set of puny Sumis....they're a decent "cruiser" tire...just don't expect too much out of them, other than rolling on them on the interstate.

    Wish the BFG's KDW's came in 315/35/R17's. MT ET Streets come in a 315, seen these in action at an unprepped track that is normally spin central unless you've got some sort of stickies. I knew the dude running them and he launched great every time. For a DD tire i'de go with the Goodyear F1's or even the F1 all seasons.

    I have used Sumi's and they are a decent tire for what they are... since they are FAR cheaper than any other 315 you basically get what you pay for. Two friends of mine and my younger brother run the Nitto street tires (555r's I believe) and they seem to be a decent street tire and not that expensive. I have seen the 315 ET street II's in action and they are very impressive for a low profile tire. I just wouldnt use them if the car sees any weather besides dry and sunny conditions. LOL!

    I have had basically dead 275 Continental's hold up better when it comes to traction than good 315 SumiHomo's.

    They have lasted me only three months and are already wore down beyond blanks. Minimal spinning, 99.999% interstate driving, 100+ miles a day, 5 days a week (about 6,000 miles more or less). I wish I could have afforded a better street tire in a 315 when I got new tires. I got my front KDW's on sale for 160 apiece...wish they had a 315 in those for the back on sale too....

    I've heard good things about Vredsteins. But those are ~200/tire last time I checked prices for 315/35-17. Seems to be either the Sumitomos for low 100s or you jump right to 200/tire.
