Only been using Kuhmos myself. Its just what my boss sells to the customers, and that there only 200m down the road from the workshop anyways. Still, a pretty good tire. Plenty of grip and not a bad wear rate either (unless your a smoker!)

I've had Bridgestones, Yokahamas, Kumhos, Hankook before, all good tyres, except the Yokahamas wore quick, which I've heard is common with them..

I'm running Falkens FK-452's at the moment & there very impressive..

Run Nankang NS2's, SX1's on my EL in the past, happy with both of them. the SX1's were slightly noisier.

On the GT-P, so far wore out the factory Dunlop Sport Maxx's, and replaced the rears with Maxxis MA-Z1s very happy with them, more grip, more life, less noise, half the price. it's win win win win.

Bridgestone Potenza's. Great grip and reasonable price. I Had Sawa Intenzas before and they were crap. Just wore too much and the grip wasnt there. Just made my car seem overpowered the way they didnt grip.

i have Sava Intensa 225/60 VR15 on my EA, and they stick to the road like s**t to a blanket, even in the wet. although the super sticky compound kinda makes it hard to dump the clutch (remembers when clutch was dumped and there was nothing but revving engine and stink of a slipping clutch :shock: of course it was done under controlled conditions by a professional on a closed circuit :P )

bridgestone RE92 is one of the s**t tyres you could fit to your car for the money, get something decent...

I have got 40,000km out of my pirelli P6000's on the ef, and they stick like s**t to a woolly blanket.
Will try something else next time, but at the moment I have bf goodrich tyres on the car on the back and simex poo on the front.. not too bad.
