Yoks ES100
 
Well, after doing some simple internet searches... here is what I think I might go with.. Unless someone can give me a reason.

Size: 225/50/16

Yokohama ES 100
Vs.
Hankook Ventus K104

Both are 280/AA/A rated

Any recommendations?? Want to do some hard street driving in the summer, and may be 2-3 lapping sessions at shannonville.

I had the ES100's for over a year. They're awesome in the rain and decent in the dry. I did my driving school with them and they were good. For the price I can't really complain. Once they got old they got a little noisy, but then again most tires do when worn. I'm pretty hard on my tires (drifting, useless brake and G tests) and I was suprised they lasted so long actually. I did over a full season of auto-x on them aswell.

If i was on a budget I'd definately get them again. I'm addicted to Toyo T1-S's at the moment....

For the Es-100, every body says they are good price... what is a good price for 225 50 16's, so for i've got CAN$179/tire. installed...

How much did you pay for your set?? And any recommendations on where I should be getting them?? I am seeing them for like US$86/tire online!?

Thanks

Well, I got mine from 1010tires.com, they're $179.99 for the 205/50/16 (about $810 shipped, taxes included), but not mounted.

I paid a grand for my 235/40/17 ES100's.

Search around locally, you might be able to get a pretty good deal.

Hey a maX member works there, Trevor aka T-Dot_E30. He might have mounted the tires, heh.

Nice tire, a little too expensive for my blood 1010tires is $249 a tire CDN


$1109 shipped to my door for 4...ouch

Cheaper paying in us funds...it comes up to 800.46 Cdn for 4 tires not shipped

I went with fuzions because they were rated just a hare better overall against the es100's by tire rack. They were just a little worse in the dry, but just a little better in the wet. They were cheap too, so far so good.

Check the comparo: http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tests/...&tireModel=ZRi

Same boat here, I'm going with the Yoko es 100. 225/45ZR17 for my car I'm payin $950
Here's what I paid for:
the 4 tires (obviously)
Mounted
Balanced,
That tire recycling tax
an Alignment.
Oh and taxes are in.

So here's a question...The guy called me and said they are a W rating, but I thought a ZR tire is a Z rating.. Jay(mystikal) can you explain this to me.
Thanks

In the end, it really doesn't matter. The Z-rating is severely outdated, and I'm surprised manufacturers still use it at all. W is likely a more accurate measure of their speed capability.

Thanks man *th-up* W has a faster speed rating then Z...like I need it anyway, car tops at 208km/h redline and with my new 17's I'd be lucky to hit that.
