    New tires, help me decide

    Im looking for some new tires. Key points:

    1. It is a weekend car
    2. straight line accleration a high priority, BUT MUST be able to still handle like a sports car, ie, M3/996/Corvette Click here to enlarge
    3. road noise needs to remain at civil levels
    4. rain use is not likely, but possible
    5. 19 " wheels

    Tires Im currently cross shopping:

    BRIDGESTONE POTENZA RE-11

    TOYO PROXES R888

    HANKOOK VENTUS R-S3

    NITTO NT555

    NITTO NT05

    NITTO INVO

    MICHELIN PILOT SUPER SPORT

    If you have any first hand knowledge of positives or negatives of any of these, I would be very appreciative

    nt555 don't really belong in those typse of wheels but I heard great things about them. I have the nt05's and for the price and performance it gave me, I don't think I'd go any other route. I heard the rs3's and the R888's are the best though. Michelin and bridgestone are just $$$.

    My vote will go to nt05. Best bang for the buck.

    PSS is a great tire fo a DD.
    Good mileage, excelent grip in dry and wet, predictable fall off point. Great tire overall.
    Only downside to it is a slightly soft sidewall which allows for some side movement. But the reason that you notice that is also due to the fact that the contact surface is so grippy...
    There are two theories to arguing with women. Neither one works

    Thanks @DavidV I think Ill go ahead and grab a pair for the rear. The Bridgestone F1s on the front are damn near 90% life.

    I keep hearing GREAT things about the Hankook RS3. Too bad they're sold out until April.

    MOTIV750, MOTIV P-1000 PI, MOTIV/FUEL-IT! low pressure fuel system, AEM EMS/COBB AP, Aquamist HFS-3, ETS FMIC, SPEC stage 3+ clutch/SS flywheel, BC Racing coilovers and VMR wheels wrapped in Hankook RS3s.

    MPSS is the best tire on the market for the money.
