    Nitto NT450 205/40/17 $925.00 order
    Hankook 205/40/17 $845.00 order
    Kuhmo 205/40/17 $865.00 order
    Falken 205/40/17 $880.00 order
    Toyo Z 205/40/17 $965.00 order

    which of these is the best tire for daily driving in crappy chicago weather? although i will be putting stock tires back on for the winter, and i know common sense tells me the more expensive the better, but does the performance of the toyo z really reflect the higher price?

    Bad weather tires? STAY AWAY FROM THE TOYO PROXES FZ4's.

    I highly recommend the Falken Ziex 512. It's a very nice all season tire that's fairly cheap too. I'm surprised how well mine grip this spring.

    The Yokohama Parada Spec-2s are AWESOME :D in dry weather... Haven't driven them in rain rain (drizzle here lately).

    I would use Falken tires. They are great for the price.

    I had Toyo FZ4 Proxes and it's Terrible in wet weather. Very slippery. (Then again, my camber was off a few degrees and the tires were wearing out from the inside.) Now I have Parada Spec-2's. They're really sticky and I haven't had any problems with them. (Then again, I installed a camber kit when I got the Paradas) :lol: Hmmm, the new Nitto tires are appealing. I don't think they're out yet.
