    I don't recommend any sumihomo tire.
    Their 315's felt like worn out 245's when trying to hook to me.

    Only Kumho I have experience with is the Ecsta MX. Loved them, but they wore FAST!

    I run with Nitto DR 315's for the street. But I am also having to hook a little more power.

    It depends what you need really. If you need to hook and you want a great ride you need to spend more. Sumitomo's are cheap and you get a wide tire that looks nice on the car but they are noisy and performance is poor even in the dry. In the rain,.. I'm not even gonna go there.
    Im running BFGoodrich g-Force T/A KDW 2 tires right now and they hook really well.

    Nittos will probably be your best bet in that price range

    Nitto DR for 190 http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/315-3...3286.m20.l1116

    I don't know how much power you have, which would be nice to know.

    Also what your intentions of the car is important as well.

    These DR's are for summer only and must not be left out in the cold.

    Yes they will fit your 17x10.5" rim

    I swear you couldn't remove the certificates for free replacement when I bought mine from them. Now I could...weird, but good find. That's a pretty good tire for that price.

    T/A's have more room in the rear.

    Vredestein Ultrac Sessanta's are an awesome tire! They were designed for the autobahn by the Dutch! They have a real stiff sidewall and are great in the rain. You barely feel any plowing when going through lots of water.

    As long as you have an adjustable panhard and keep the spring spacer (i forget what its called) you should be fine. I am lowered and have no problems.

    They measure:
    - 315/35/ZR17 Y
    - 25" tall
    - 12 1/4" wide
    - 12" tread
    - Treadwear 280
    - Traction AA
    - Temperature A
