Tires option

Just ordered a new set of wheels, I still have the HRE and OEM stocks. Tires choice would be Toyo, Nitto & Falken, what should I get?

None of those for me.......

My preferences are:

1. Pirelli PZero Corsa System
2. Michelin Pilot Sport PS2
3. Hankook V12
4. Vredestein Ultrac Sessanta

If I had those choices, I would go for the Hankook V12. None of the original three choices are that good in Ajax's unbiased opinion.

My vote is Hankook V12 too.

Cant beat the performance you get for the price.

IMO do not get the Nitto INVO's. Terrible sidewalls. Tires are a compromise or trade off.
My choice would be the Toyo TR1's.
The Toyo R888 is an "R" compound therefore imo falls out of this comparison. Great grip but poor wear/tire life (again the trade off issue).
Price --- value --- efficacy are all interrelated.
