    Michelin Pilot Super Sports.
    Best allround tire for dry and wet conditions on RWD cars IMO.
    Unless you want to go semi-slicks.
    There are two theories to arguing with women. Neither one works

    Yep, the M278 definitely is respectable.

    Yes they are but also very limited, we have a HUGE inventory of them and no one else seems to have them right now. Call me! @Sticky also mentioned you were interested in some D2 Forged Wheels, I just so happens to be a dealer for D2 and great friends with the owner (Derrick).

    HRE, ADV.1, D2 Forged, or Vorsteiner. Do you have a design in my that you are looking for? Mesh style? 5 spoke? 6 spoke?
