The one who makes the best for my budget based on reviews and tests, not brand loyal, they all make good and not so good tires. However, living in Edmonton Alberta, I'll be searching for some winter rims and Michelin Alpin Pa3's
Hmmm. Had them, or a variant of, on my past BMW Z3 Coupe. They were good, but wore out fast, and in the BMW's sizes (staggered fr/rr), cost a small fortune.
Had great past success in AutoX with the original Dunlop Z1 Star Specs, and at that time, they were cheap in 225/40/18 for my STi and later R32. Also worked perfect in the rain. So am sort of biased towards them from past experiences.
Had those Falken RT's at one time. They used to be the hot set to have, until the Advan Neova came out. Then found those Dunlops were every bit as good, or better - yet half the cost.
Im currently looking at tires to replace the ones that are coming with the ST to either 215/40/17 or 215/35/17 all season but theres not too many good options. I currently have kumho ecsta 4x tires on my TL for 10 months and they have been great but they are not available at tirerack in this size... bummer.
