I need new tires on my 91.  OEM alloy rims.  Any suggestions? Running Pirelli P6000 now which did ok.  Just dont last worth a s$%.

I have Kuhmo ECSTA Supra 712's.  So far, they're holding up pretty good...had them for a month and I put about 100 miles a day on them.  They're good all around tires...great wet traction.  I don't know about snow traction b/c I live in MS.  But the biggest plus is they're probably the least expensive performance tire you can get.  My 225/45/16's were $87 a piece at tirerack.com

We get snow here about every three years or so. <img src="http://www.zilvia.net/f/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=':D'> I got caught out with the 240 once in one of these. It wasnt pretty. I got beside a honda civic that had been modded up. We both went about 5 mph as any faster we started to slide sideways. Held up traffic. I am definately going to check out tirerack.

Well, are you looking for dry z-rated tires or wet traction? &nbsp;If you're looking for dry tires, I would suggest Michelin Piolet MXX3. &nbsp;I loved those on my 515hp corvette. &nbsp;I could only get the tires to break loose twice, and I was trying REALLY stupid maneuvers when I did that. &nbsp;Right now I am running Bridgestone OS-2 Pole Postition, cuz tirerack rated them one of the best wet traction Z-rated tire. &nbsp;The stupid people who mounted them threw my alignment off and I am trying to argue with them to buy me new ones because they messed it up. &nbsp;The fronts have a toe-in and are worn to nothing on ONLY the inside inch and a half and I have all the tread on the other 7 inches or so. &nbsp;But they are good tires.

How about Falken FK-451 or Toyo Proxes T1-S?

...these are great tires.
