    time for new tires

    so i got my 17" ZR1 replicas and i need some new tires for them.

    i was considering getting a set of 275/40R-17 Yokohama S.drive tires.

    any thoughts on these tires or others? i can get the set of 4 shipped to my house for $564.00. i'm looking to not spend more than $120 - $130 per tire.

    also i'm looking to get these ordered by early next week so i can get them mounted and the new tires on the car shortly here as my time in the storage unit is coming to an end here in a month or so.

    thanks!

    I have 285 Bridgestone Potenza RE730... a friend recommended them... and they've been great. They do really well at high speeds in the rain and at 285 width, that is critical. They hold up well too, even with some serious tire roasting. I think they are tough to find now though. Can't recall what price I paid.

    Wet weather is pretty good. They aren't that god in the cold the rubber gets pretty hard. When warm they they hook well.
