I am looking at some new tires and want the best handling I can get out of tires for mostly dry conditions and sometimes wet in the price range of $500-600 fitting on 18's with 275s and 235s. Thanks guys

I'm running kumho mx's. Supposed to be comparable to bfg kd's but at a fraction of the cost. I havent pushed them yet but several people swear by them on this forum and it also received good reviews on tirerack.

Is that $500-$600 total for per tire? I absolutely love my BFG KDs.

I :love: my KDW's too


I paid about $800 for mine give or take.. they are 245s and 285s on 18s. If you can save up or squeeze out a little more they're worth it!

I second the Kumho MX's. Great bang for the buck and they did pretty well at the road course.
I found that I could order them from Tire Rack, drop ship them to an installer (your choice), cheaper than buying them at the installer. In fact, my tire guy recommended it!

Nice soft ride, and very good handling rain or shine!


I have Yoko Sports, they are great in the dry, but suck with any wet conditions. Cold conditions are also sucky. Stiff tires though. These are great for hot days ;)


I have heard great things about the KDW's as well

I think some folks are missing the cost issue, and what I assume is a desire for a street tire.
It's hard to get a competition tire at a low cost and good treadwear. Actually, it's impossible.
For $400-500/set, you can get decent street tires from Kumho. I ran my MX's on the street for a long time, as well as a few track days. In fact, I am still running them on the fronts!

I really like any Falken. I'm running a set of those new Cooper Zeon 2XS tires, and so far I'm VERY impressed. The have a 45 day test drive on them...if you don't like them after 45 days, take em back! So far, I'm really impressed. $121ea. for the fronts, $165ea. for the rears in your fitment from www.tiresavings.com

Its hard to find tires that size and at 600 bucks for all 4. I know before I even got the ventus tires at 275s and just for two it was like 450, so yea it be hard.

Falken RT-615s: the SCCA Solo II street tire of choice. The RT-215s were great too but have been replaced by this tire.

I have 235/40R18 in the front and 275/35R18 on the rear.

Check out this article

You can get them from the following places:

www.vulcantire.com (cheapest but depends on shipping)
www.edgeracing.com
www.tires.com

The 615 won't be in the 500-600 dollar price range unless he finds a killer deal somewhere.

I think that's why someone brought up the 451 in the first place.
