I currently have Pirelli 7000 Supersports and it's time for a change. It's not that the tires themselves are bad but I just haven't had the best of luck with them. I bought them initially serveral years ago and I've gone through seven of them for one reason or another(I didn't have to pay for the extras though) and now it looks like I'll probally need another two.

I like the Toyo T1 S... the thread looks so damn sweet!

Anyway which tires you guys and gals like?

I just ordered a set of Michilen Pilot XGT V4. I really like these tires. I have a personal preferance to Michilen, so I think that is it. They have real good wet traction, and still maintain a high dry traction. Another Plus! Michelin Pilot XGT V4 Check them out for yourself!
Later!

What size do you want? Do you have stock rims or have you upgraded? Also how do you like to drive? If you drive fast and want something really sticky I'd suggest something very different than if you drive more sedately and don't race at all. Give us some more info and I'm sure lots of help will show up.

Kumho has impressed me

I had Pirelli SP P7000's on my old legend for about 5k miles...and wasnt a big fan...

They didnt seem to perform well in wet weather...or at least as well as I had hoped. I did like the tread however.

I just got a new set of aftermarket rims and wrapped them in Kumho Ecsta Supra 712's. So far, I love them. The price was right (only paid about $110/tire) and the ratings on tire rack promote them. It has been raining in Nor Cal the last few days, and they have proved themselves. I am sold.

I'm really looking for a set of summer tires. I tend to drive fast but not all of the time. When I do put the pedal to the metal the last thing I want to worry about is am I going to fast for my tires! Unfortunately my Legend has become my only vehicle so whatever tires I pick must be able to handle day to day situations as well as spring/summer/fall wheather.

Preferrably I'm looking for 215/45/17's but I'd also consider 225/45/17's.

I've been pretty happy with my Nitto NT-450's. Mine are also 215/45ZR-17, and the price is comparable to the Kumhos. I like the tread on the Kumhos, but something about the sidewall just didn't look right (at least on every picture I could find on the web).

I know the Nittos also come in 225 but I don't know if they'll rub or not.

The Kumho's have had great dry weather traction so far as well. I didn't go for the Nitto's because I have heard that they had below-par wet-weather performance. You can check out the stats on tirerrack to see how they compair.

A good all around tire for the price is the Bridgestone Potenza RE730, good wet and dry traction, quiet ride and decent treadwear. If you don't mind spending more money go with either the Michelin Pilot or the Potenza S03, both are amazing tires. I have heard the S03s are better in the wet and last slightly longer but are a bit noisier. They are both pretty expensive though, I guess you get what you pay for. Good luck with picking something out.
