dunlop 300e's were a really good tyre imo..
best tyre i had on the 15's on my commo.

Federal ss595's are a good tyre, and are reasonably cheap, ~160 a corner..

im lookin to get some for the xr6

One of the instructors at Barbagello reckoned Federal 595's were some of the best road tyres he's ever used.. I plan to get some next time round for my XR6, too.

I have maxxis Mav1, they are a pretty decent tyre, they are very quiet tyre and perform pretty good. They feel a little sloppy if you have the tyre pressure any lower than 36psi, so if you have them on 40psi they handle well, and are quiet.

Oh, they are about 150 a tyre which is pretty cheap.

Unfortunately, the B'stone SF340 Eagers don't come in 17's, there not too noisy, last a long time, have good grip in dry, reasonable in the wet. I have 235/60R15's on my EA.
