I have the Toyo T1-S and they are great.........but they reworked the tread pattern and now they sell T1-R instead, excellent tires tho...do you need the tires for winter weather too? If not check out the T1-R's
The Z is the only car I have so I do drive in the winter, but it does not snow that much here (knock on wood) and I had the OEM tires this past winter, so I am use to driving around on hockey pucks till they warm up. The Toyo tires I am looking at are the Toyo Proxes TPT Tires, is that different then the ones you have jinxxycat?
They are ultra performance tires as opposed to they ones you posted, which are performance all season. The ultra performance ones are NOT good in cold weather, they get like hockey pucks and I def. would not drive in the snow on them....
The TPT is a performance tire not a high performance tire. Is there that much of a difference? I do drive it like it like it is a sports car, but I am not street racing so do I really need to drop another $75 per tire to get a high performance all season tire? I can't imagine the TPT being worse the the OEM's.
I'm a huge fan of the Nitto 555's. If you're looking for something more price competitive than Toyos, I would look into the 555's or a set of BF Goodrich KDW-2's. Both seem to be much cheaper than the Toyo T1-S's. I haven't looked into the TPT's before.
After looking at some reviews for the Toyo TPT, it looks like it will not have the handling I want, more of a sedan tire. So I am looking at the Michelin Pilot Sport A/S. Anyone here have the Sport A/S tires?
Thanks study buddy but I could not find the two you mentioned in my size.
Thanks for all your suggestions but I really need an all season tire. I don't think the summer high performance tires will like it when it gets down to 30 degrees, let a long trying to drive in an inch or two of snow like I did last winter.
