    I like these :)

    But those don't seem to bad, H speed rated all season, cheap, they have their place for sure, but like B said, you have to take into account the what's and why's first.

    I was reading some reviews of those on tirerack and alot of people were disipointed in those. They said they were defently better then street tires, but was expecting them to grip like full out slicks, and they came up short.

    Of corse they aren't gonna grip like slicks. If they grip better then regular street tires and don't fall apart fast then they are exactly what I am looking for. Thanks for all you help everyone.

    If you want nice all season tires that are not too expensive - Get a set of Kumho Ecsta 711's. Those tires have done me well and after about 18,000 Miles, i still have about 65% tread left.
