View Full Version : Any horror stories on these?

I did a bit of research and they all have good reviews.
What do you think?
I am looking at street use ("spirited" driving if you see what I mean...)

- Avon Tech M500 105$
- BF Goodrich G-Force T/A KDW-2 129$
- Bridgestone Potenza RE750 135$
- Fuzion ZRI 96$
- Sumitomo HTR Z II 89$
- Yokohama AVS ES100 113$
- Kumho Ectsa Supra 712 89$

All prices are from tirerack (US$) for 225-45-17.

I had the Supra 712 and was very satisfied except for a bit too much tramlining towards the end.

What about the Kumho Ectsa MX (a bit more expensive at 135$ but apparently better)?

Thanks for the input.

I have the same question.

Does it make sense to spend a little bit more money and get the Michelin PS2's?

Would you buy from Tirerack? I have read that Tirerack ships via UPS which = big duty costs.

look at the toyo T1S-Rs and they are about $170 to 225 mark..........

look into Falken Ziex ze512's...I liked the reviews and mine cost 65ea. Does my car ever pull now and it corners on rails. Michelin ps2 aren't gettin slammed by anybody...they seem like a big time tire...the question is whether they are twice as good as some of these at half the price...and I doubt it. Potenzas get hard with Post-cure after a while and extreme heat cycles.

Potenza SO3's.
Amazing and worth every penny.

I just got 235/40/17 Bridgestone Fuzion ZR-I's this past weekend and no complaints so far.
$650 mounted, balanced installed.

Did anybody try the AVON?

The G-Force arn't good on wet roads at all... they are strictly dry weather tires. Noisey a bit too I hear...
