Tire Questions

I'm looking to get new tires and iv been talking to a few people and someone sugested getting 2 dif types of tires for the front and the rear. I was looking to get the Pilot Sport PS2 for the front and Nitto Nt05 for the rear. Is this smart or should I just keep it all the same.

This is my DD at the moment. I will have a winter car so it wont be driven in any sort of snow or ice or extrem cold. I want them to be good in wet and dry. I drive this car like I stole it! They might go the the 1/4 track about 2 times a year if that. I also have 458 RWHP if that makes any difference. If you have any ideas on what tires I should get also, I am always open for ideas.

What you might want to consider is buy a matching set for DDing, and a pair of WHEELS and TIRES for the REARS of a different/stickier tread compound for the track.

Excellent advise from Sir Nuke. You really can't get much better than the OEM PZeros for a Daily Driver Wet/Dry Summer Performance Tire. I think TireRack sells the stock sizes for a pretty good deal.

I do alot of road raceing on tracks. I kinda need a higher proformance tire. I know the tread life might not be great but thats fine. It just needs to get me where I need to go every day and proform well when I drop the clutch and launch or take a turn.

I think in your situation, I would look at the Nitto Invo's. I think as far as performance, they are better than the PZero's (at least from what I've heard), and they are more suited to road racing than the NT05's.
