best bang for buck on tires?

looking for 255/40/r18 rear
and 235/40/r18 for front

any recommendations?.... I want something good quality, but I'm pretty darn broke right now... so looking for anything half decent.. and not Kumho.

Toyo Proxes 4.

They don't grip near as well as the t1-s did, but I've been pretty happy with them so far.

I had Hankook on my 18's... they wear fast, too much road noise, and they might as well be slicks when it starts to rain.

The new Bridgestone Fuzion tires. They are the best bang for the buck

That is true, if you do driving schools, and 8 auto-x's a year, and like hanging the rear end out a lot
