Which one is better? For daily drive only, not on the track.

Where is the cheapest place to buy (prefer local retailer)?

ps2's are the best hands down for street then Toyo proxes T1R's in my opinion. Both are expensive as hell. Try wheels direct in Toronto.

Just called Wheel Direct, they are not the cheapest.

However, I forgot to metion that I prefer the tires to be good on wet roads condition too.

My first priority is GS-D3.

If you are looking for wet performance, the Eagles are the best, but if you want the best all around tire then the PS2 cannot be beat. If you want the best handling, then the Yoko Advan Neova is the best.

How about theads wear? Which one is better (GS-D3 or PS2)? There is $200 difference between these 2 brands.

PS2 has excellent tread life. Is is $200 each tire or overall? If its only $200 overall, then its a no brainer, PS2.

How about Pilot Sport? I have these on my car! If I am buying GS-D3 or PS2, I am going to sell them.

PS2 are much improved or PS, they are still good tires, but PS2s are that much better IMO.

The GS-D3 will ride slightly softer and have slightly better wet traction. The PS2 will have better response and slightly better dry traction.

Your call.

I know the TR1's are used by the Z06 sports club for 1/4mile track sprints so they must have substantial grip.

What is the market price for the Pilot Sport tires (around 80% treads) - a pair of 225/45/17 and a pair of 245/40/17?
