Hey guys, need some new meats for my car. Looking for 195/50R15's (thinking about going with 195/45R15) in a mild performance tire. I would like something that has decent treadwear but not hard as a rock. I want my VR6 to be able to hook up. What do you guys recommend? Where should I buy for the best deals?

I thought the Falken Azenis are only for dry?

They grip better in wet, then the OEM tires grip in dry...if that means anything. I was worried at first, some people said that because of their design they may hydroplane a lot during the rain, but thats just not true. I remember driving through two really heavy storms this summer with a ****load of water on the roads, and these things gripped really well.

Are the Falkens cheaper than the Kuhmo ECSTA Supra 712s? I don't wanna spend a whole lotta dough here and I don't plan on autocrossing the car. Unlike a lot of you, treadwear means something to me

honestly, the 712's are junk. all i heard was praise about them until i owned a set. they're ****. save your money - i believe the azenis are cheaper or around the same price.

i have to disagree with you there spoonie... they do need a little warming up on dry pavement but daily normal use they are a great tire... plus wet performance is very good... and they are not very noisy either... quite a good buy if you ask me..
