    Ugh... Bad alignment = tires prematurely getting bald on the inner front two tires....

    Fordahl Motorsports did our alignment and now I get to bitch and complain after spending over $350 to align the Evo... And this place was recommended by a friend to boot!!!

    Anyways, can anyone recommend a decent street tire (Evo is mainly a daily driver until we get a third car) that is priced around $100 - $150 per tire??? :x:

    Toyo Proxes 4s are excellent daily drivers. Decent sidewall strength, inexpensive, quiet, good dry/wet grip.

    $105/ea. here: http://www.edgeracing.com/tires/2354517/

    BF Goodrich g-force T/A KDW tires are good as well, though they're a bit pricier. I think they're around $130 or so on tire rack.

    I just got the BF G-Force tires on my IS300... so far I'm really impressed. They are quiet, and grip really well. In fact, I like them better than the Bridgestone Potenza SO-3s that I have on my M5 that cost nearly twice as much.

    Michelin Pilot Exalto. Got 'em on my car. They keep my 3500lb. Passat STUCK to the road like you wouldn't think a 4-door sedan could be. I've even got sport suspension on it, and the car leans uncomfortably before I can get any noise out of the tires. They should do fine on your rock-sprung Coroll...I mean, Evo.

    falken rt-615s I ran them on my car and loved them for street use, I ran one track day on them and 2 autox events with no problems except they have a tendency to get a little slippery when they are hot all and all bonb ass street tire for around 130 a tire

    Kumho Ecsta MX seems to be a popular choice.

    and Miata guys LOVE Toyo Proxes, I dunno.



    Me, I don't think I've yet had tires worth a damn on any car I've owned... and with driving my teg like 100 miles a day I don't think I'm about to start either...

    I put the Falken 615's on. 255-40-17 on stock rims fit without rub, lowered on tanabe gf210s. you need to break the tires in a bit - they get significantly better
