Toyo Proxes 4....I have them on my car because I have to drive it in the rain sometimes...it has seen snow, but with the turbo on the car it's worthless now...I think I'm just going to spring for the ultra-high performance summer tires after these are gone.
and I use the Potenza RE750. As you can see, there's a good mix in here. They may have some subtle differences, but most of these are probably pretty simillar.
There's a good balance of grip and tread life with the Potenzas. I usually replace the rear set every year, but I'm a leadfoot. On top of that, I put allot of miles on the car during the short summer where I live.
I used Goodrich KDW tires a couple of years back and switched over to the Potenzas. There was little difference, but I guess I prefer the Potenzas. Although they are a tad more expensive, I might try out the Eagles next year.
I got yokahamas on my car right now. came with them. and I like them.
If you have a friend at firestone or know someone that works there the fusions are not a bad tire and employees tend to get them at 75% off and sometimes 50% off special.
Goodyear Eagle F1 GSD3 - These have the best user rating for wet and dry traction of any tire on TireRack and also were rated the best by Road and Track a few months back. They are by far, the best looking tire as well from the back. You can't go wrong if you drive in wet and dry on a regular basis.
I suggest T1R's I have them on my supra N/A 95 i got them from tiredealsforless.com
but they suck in the extreme cold weather. like 30 degrees. there prices are good depends on what sizes u looking for.
I am not trying to hijack this thread, but I have question to add to the original post. What kind of tires would be good for the winter on stock na mkiv? Not like driving on lots of snow or ice, but during freezing temps and/or light snow.
And also stock tires are 245/45/R16 fit on the rear, right?
Thanks in advance..
I use Yokohama Avid V4S' and before I had my supra I used the Avid H4S' on my old car, they're reasonably priced, stick pretty good and have pretty good tread life as well. Also the toyo proxes 4 mentioned above are very good tires, it all depends on what you're going for, often times as one would suspect, the softer the tires the stickier they are and the shorter they last, it's all just up to what you're looking for, don't get performance tires with lots of grip if you're looking for a tire to last a long time, and visa versa for longer lasting tires if you're looking for the most grip.
