    205/55/15 tire selection

    I know there are a lot of people here who run 15x7s on all four corners of non flared cars. What do you run for tires?

    My 15x7s will be today or tomorrow and Im going to need new tires for the street. What are my best options from this list?

    Cooper Zeon - $79 each, dimensions NA
    Yokohoma Avid V4S - $73, dimensions NA
    Yokohoma AVS ES 100 - $77, 8.3" wide, 24" diameter
    Kumho ECSTA Supra 712 - $62, 8.4" wide, 23.9" diameter
    Kumho ECSTA ASX - $66, 8.3" wide, 23.9" diameter
    Kumho ECSTA 711 - $52 , 8.4" wide, 23.9" diameter
    Dunlop SP Sport FM901 - $68, 8.5" wide, 23.9" diameter
    Dunlop SP Sport 8000 - $85, 8.1" wide, 23.9" diameter
    Bridgestone S0-3 - $120 , 8.4" wide, 23.9" diameter
    Bridgestone RE750 - $91, 8.3" wide, 23.9" diameter
    Pirelli P6 - $80, 8.5" wide, 24" diameter
    BF Goodrich G-Force Sport - $74, 8.4" wide, 23.9" diameter

    Does anyone run the Kumho 711s on the street? They are obviously the cheapest option, are they any good? Any other recommendations?

    TIA

    I run 205x55 S-03's on the front of my car (225x50's on rear)

    Best performance street tire I've ever been on...
    Only a couple of ticks off my DOT's

    They wear FAST!!! .... 7900 miles and the rears were gone..

    I drive hard... and I run about 2 degrees negative on all four corners.

    Cheers,

    Thanks Chuck! I've heard that the S0-3's are the best tires on the planet. I was wondering how long they last.

    I really like the Yoko ES 100's 205X60X15. 6.5" minilites

    I also have the TOYO Proxes T1-S 205X55X15 on 7" cookie cutter rims which are very good also.

    Go for it. Lots of choices!!

    I dig my new Kumho Ecsta KH11, 195 60R15's on my daily driver that I also run at Streets of Willow for the P.O.C. events. They tires are a great value.
