Picked up some new tires.
« on: March 29, 2005, 03:13:31 PM »
Well I finally decided on a new set of tires and had them installed on Saturday.  I ended up getting 225/45/17 Avon Tech M500 UHP tires.  

So far I'm happy with the purchase, they are quieter than my old Michelins and there is defintiely better performance under braking.

I chose these because they had better feedback and Tirerack test results than the Kumho Supra 712's and BFG G-Force Sports I initally looked at, and were on par with the Yok's that many of you recommended.

I can't wait till I can get them on the track or an autocross to see how they really perform, but when I do I'll let you guys know.

Good to hear.  I haven't heard any other first-hand accounts yet.  I'll be looking forward to what you think of 'em after some extended usage.
