Tire suggestions

looking for suggestions on new tires. Currently the wheels have Essenza on them, and need to replace soon. Anyone have or try out a tire brand named Wanli Performance Tires?
So many tires choices out there, not sure what to get for a reasonable price.

Depends what you are lookin for, performance, summer tire, winter, all season, dry/ or wet traction, road noise, tire wear, ride comfort? ...lol deside all of those or some of them and you can narrow it down but summer performance wise BFgoodrich G-force sport is a realyt good performance-for-the-buck IMO.. good luck

As my opinion. Yokohama YK520 is the best for all seasons, comfort drive, quite, long lasting treadwear and reasonable prices. I currently have these on 16", I plan to have the same brand on 17" wheels.

I went with 225 50 16 Kumho Ecsta summer tires. They are quiet, corner very well, good in the wet, absolutely awful in the snow (as if you care down there), and they tend to "Tramline" or jerk the steering wheel around a bit when there are ruts or grooves in the pavement.

I think that for the money, they are a good deal, but if you want to spend more, you can probably get better tires.
