Default tire time

seached and got an idea of what tires are fairly good but need some input.
would like to come in less than 500 otd...mount, balanced,aligned, for a daily driver with some occasional spirited driving.
just like some ideas on what tire and where to get them.

looks like yore on a decently tight budget. so maybe re01-r's and direzzas are out of yore budget.

these are the best bang for the buck. no doubt http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires....odel=HTR+Z+III

and you may even be able to throw in the alignment for under 500. maybe

yeah the z1's won't be under 500 or even close. the re-01's aren't cheap either... unless you happened to score em during the tirerack sale.

i ran coopers for a bit... they were cheap and fairly decent for the price, did well in the rain, got a good amount of miles out of them but they didn't have nearly as much dry grip as azenis or the z1's i've been running since.
