Has anyone tried the Michelin Pilot super sport? I read tirerack rated them #1 for summer tires.

You need a EPST, so re-11 or star spec is the best option (usually people opt for the spec since the price difference on the re-11 isn't worth it )

No one ever mentions the continental extremecontact DW tires. They're awesome for what they are. I have like 20k on mine and they still have the majority of their tread left. A lot of people don't even get 20k out of their star specs total, or at least not much more than that. I'm sure the specs give a bit more traction, but if price is at all a factor, the DW are more more economical for the majority of the grip.

Very good point the dws are at a nice price point and have a very good tread life rating I was considering them when I was buying tires last May.

I've got the DWS. They're not bad at all. Just over 20k on these tires and the S part still hasn't worn off the tire. The DWS wear down as the tires lose tread. S for snow, W for wet, D for dry.
I'm sitting right around 300 whp. Great DD all season tire. Very comfy.

Does anyone know or have any experience with the Mickey Thompson drag Radials as a street tire?? Would they be consider as a good or the best tire that would help with a turbo si making 400 plus hp???

im glad this thread was brought up again cuz i wanted to ask this for awhile lol; i badly want to improve my traction thru the 1st couple of gears (even tho i know no street tire will ever truly plant) what is the best possible combo i can do with my tires and rim size for my 400 whp setup?? i currently run 225/45-17 with ventus v12s on stock rims and lowered by an inch and a half. i dont care if i have to get 2 different size rims for the front if it means better traction lol

235/40/17 star specs, if you get 17x8 try and fit 245
And have 0 camber up front

yea im thinking getting a set of wider rims lke 17 x 8 may benefit me more than just squeezing in 235s on my stock ones. u dont think i'll rub being lowered an inch and a half?

What turbo setup? Are you using boost by gear? For tires you can fit 235/40 on stock rim, but if you're willing to buy 17x8 rims that would be better because even with 235's you would have a wider contact patch because the tire would fit better, you could also fit a 245/40 on an 8'' wide rim. If you rub you could always raise the car a little (I'm assuming you're on coilovers?). FWIW I have 235/40 star specs on stock rims, dropped about an inch on buddy club n+ coils and I hook fairly well. I have a log manifold turbo setup though so my power in first gear (~7 psi) is lower than if you have a tubular manifold. But at 370whp in third gear I do not spin unless it is very cold like in the 40s.
