I was wondering who really makes the best or great tires. Im looking for more of highway use, and racing from light to light type of tires. Do any of you have any suggestsions? Ive been looking into a few such as pirelli, yokohama, falken, and nitto. What do you guys use on your supras? Thanx

I guess it depends on what you mean by best. I never drive my baby in the rain, therefore wet traction is not that important to me. I prefer dry traction road noise and wear. My potenzas have lasted many years so I am happy with them

bunch of options. i think the top of the top is BFG TA KD, though, here is a list of other good tires

Bridgestone S03 (and s02's), Toyo Proxes T1S, Goodyear Eagle F1 GS-D3, michelin pilot sport, pirelli p zero assymmetrico.

555's are decent, i was never overly impressed by them, IMO you can get better for cheaper.

if youre looking for grip vs. money...kumho mx

I think your range is too broad. A good highway tire should have good treadwear, but a sticky tire will not do that.
I like the Kumho in general. The 712 for plain-jane street use. I hope the MX is good at the track.

well basically Im looking for tires that have a nice grip, decent traction I will drive in rain occasionally but not a lot and good tread. My intrests in racing is just from stoplight to stoplight maybe ill push the limit a little against a foreign car on the highway :D
