well it seems as if its time to buy tires again. my gy gsd3's have been really great. when i got them last year i got them on special at tire rack for under 600 to my door. well i was figuring on getting them again but now it looks like 750 to my door so i need an alternative. i was thinking of these few.

pirelli p zero nero ms @ 183.00

bf goodridge g force ta kdw @ 152.00

toy proxes t1-s @ 166.66

toyo proxes 4 @ 154.00

falken azenis sport @ 110.00

nitto nt 555 @ 135.00

dunlop sp sport fm901 @ 160.00

here are a few other things. i drive my z pretty hard the factory tires lasted about 25k my goodyears are pushing 20k. i need great wet dry traction and some thing that will last 20-25k. if any one has experience with any of the tires i listed id like to hear your impressions.
thanks

The Falken Azenis are awesome tires. They aren't over-priced either. The 555's might wear out before you would like.

i have the falken's up front right now w/michelin's on the rear(they didnt have a matching set when i ordered)...and i am very happy w/both. the michelin's are the pilot sports(which are pretty pricey).

I have the Nittos with about 10,000 miles on them and they look really good. Ive seen another car with the same tires but with over 20,000 miles on them and they looked really good too. I dont think tread life would be an issue with these tires. They also have great grip and the price is good also.

I've always loved Toyos but I currently have the Nittos and with 10k miles they look really good. For the price, I think they're a great value.

Falken is the best for the price. I paid $100 each include install. Very stable even @ 155mph.

Not to pimp my place of work... but I'm from NTB
and....The Dunlop FM901 are only A traction...not even AA
the michelin pilot sport a/s are AA traction and nice.

I am putting on my Fulda Quantum Elites...
they are Goodyear private label but it is same mold and rubber
as Goodyear Eagle F1 GsD2 (somehting like that) they are going for dirtcheap like 100 bucks

I've got a set of the Toyo T1-S on one of my cars.
I am impressed by how good they work in the rain.

G-force T/A KDW is a fine choice, at least it has been for me so far. They stick like glue (AA traction rated of course) and are reasonably priced, at least currently, because they have been replaced by the KDW-NT (the "new style" KDW). Tire Rack has them on sale (the old style that is). Great tire. Otherwise go with Toyo Proxes or NITTO 555.

I've heard a lot of good things about BFG KDW's, and I'm a fan of BFG so this is good to know.

I was debating between the Nitto 555 and the Toyo T1-S and the Falken Azenis Sport myself and here's what I came up with.

Azenis: Cheap. GREAT dry traction. Not so great in wet and won't last many miles.

555: Cheap. Good dry and wet traction. Will hold up to abuse.

T1-S: Expensive. Sticky in dry and wet conditions. Holds up to milage and abuse.

Conclusion: Go with the T1-S if you can afford them. They will be worth the money if you can do it. I ended up going with the 555's, but I found them for $105 apiece from discounttiredirect.com :thumbsup: Good luck with your search.

I know tires have mileage ratings on them. What are the Bridgestones rated?
