    Not sure what to get. My last two sets of shoes have been RT615s. Been really happy with them. Haven't had any issues with them in the wet. Excellent grip when its dry. Get like 30k out of a set usually. RT615k's are $384 shipped. Haven't gotten down to autocross in awhile which is why I was buying the tires originally.

    The size is 195/60/14 btw. I'm rocking the Civic HX wheels still. Wish I had 15s because I would much prefer 50 series tires but I'm too cheap to pay the extra money for the new wheels and more expensive tires.

    I'm not sure what I'm getting at here. I drive the Civic pretty hard in the corners still because its fun. If anyone has any recommendations that have similar handling characteristics and a similar price tag I would appreciate it.

    Shameless post in the members lounge btw since no one has visited the tire page since March :p

    moved back to the correct forum
    the forum will not get new posts if people dont post in it ;)

    back on topic

    going to be hard to find that performance rating in that size
    tirerack has nothing in that range
    if you are willing to go 185/6014 they have the Direzza ZII but they are about $25 more per tire

    that size does not lend itself to many options

    Oh damn. Go to a 15x7 and the world is your oyster.... 225/45 BFG Rivals or Hankook R-S3s.

    How do you drive on those RT615s in the rain? I couldn't imagine daily driving those in washington.

    I've never had any issues with them except in heavy rain :dunno: when I autocrossed with them on a wet day they had a surprising level of grip.
