Where are you located? It would help to know if you get snow or lots of rain where you are at.

Falken Azenis ST115's are great. I run them on my S14 and they are really good for spirited driving. My size is 205/55/R16 on stock SE alloys. They are really good high performance summer tire with out the high cost. They are pretty good in rain too. I live in Iowa and see all sorts of weather. I wouldn't run them in snow unless you have like five 60lb sand bags in the rear. Tread wear is rated at 360 i believe and it does last long. I'm on my 2nd year on the same tires.

OK. In that case look at either the Falken ST112 or the new Falken Zeix 912 both excellent tires.

If you haven't bought any tires yet you can check the Toyo T-1R. Excellent wet and dry performance.

I have had nothing but good times with my HANKOOK ventus rs-2's excellent tires with excellent tread life.
