Tire shopping soon, need some help....



ALright,

I bought my sumitomo's last year and the ones that were on the rear last year (now on the front this year) are pretty well down to the tread marker...

I don't do burnouts or anything, I guess the Z rated tires just wear out quickly....

I think I am looking at some 225/45/17 Kuhmo 712 Ecsta's or something else.....

Can anyone give me some advice on quality tires at a good price in the GTA??
Thanks
Jay
