Yeah, I know the weight: Heavy. Lol, I wanted to weigh them didn't have the time.

225/60/16? Is that a typo? That's crazy oversize.

Not typo, a big brain fart LOL I meant 225-45-16. I was just talking with a guy who wants me to get 205-60-14 for his BBS wheels, so got BBS confused.

They are a bit heavier, mine I think is 22lbs each. BBS 14's are lighter at 19lbs.

I heard allot about the Hankooks RS2. I was thinking of going with the Yokohama AVS Sport or ES100 for street.

I will try a few to see what grip I will have and how the tire will wear. I will have to run the car with some camber on the track so wear is also important.
Since I will be running a Turbo, traction is also a concern so I will have to get a good balance between, conering grip, straight line traction while maintaining limited tire wear as well.

from my research, ES100's are crap. Not personal experience tho, just a bunch of forum opinions

Some guys in the BMW club are running the ES100's and like them. Thay have strong side walls and are great for drifting, these guys also do lapping days with them as well.

Lots of people mostly had good things to say about them on Tire Rack website http://www.tirerack.com/survey/Surve...odel=AVS+ES100

I will not say until I run a few different brands and models. My application will be different since I will be putting down more torque and HP, I may have to run two different sets for street and track use.

I will be installing a GC coilover kit with Koni Adj, will have the car corner balanced as well so what might work well for me might not necessarily be good for others.
