47,000 km on those tires is absolutely awesome! Great job. It goes to show how you treat your car. My friend didn't even make 8000 km before he replaced his first set of rears? (It was his first Camaro!)I was at 22,500 on my 2ss\rs when I traded it for my ZL1. I'm thinking I could have got to 40,000 before replacing.

Alright, I'm going to go tire hunting again tomorrow.

My list so far is:
Nitto Motivo
Nitto Invo
Gmax as-03
Falken 452

Going to try and get quotes from OK Tire, Fountain, kal, blaskin and lane, Midas, tire craft, etc

Namala at davenport recommended some falkens, but I'm also liking the motivo and gmax tires. Since my tread is basically gone, it will come down to who can get what the fastest for the cheapest

Thanks again everyone for the help!

I had some time on my hand...

If your going for the most Tread Wear(more Life) then it has to have a larger UTOG:IE:
TREADWEAR
: 220
TRACTION: AA
TEMPERATURE: A


Nitto Motivo = UTQG: 560 A A (All Season)
Nitto Invo = UTQG: 260 A A (Summer Only)
Gmax as-03 = UTQG: 480 A A (All Season)
Falken 452 = UTQG: 300 AA A (Summer Only)(Front Original Size Only)
Perilli P Zero = UTQG: 220 AA A (Summer Only)
Hankook Ventus V12 evo K110 = UTQG:280 AA A (Summer Only)
Goodyear Eagle GT = UTQG: 400 AA A (All Season)
Firestone Firehawk Wide Oval AS = UTQG: 400 A A (All Season)
Continental Extreme Contact DWS = UTQG: 540 A A (All Season)
BFGoodrich g-Force Sport COMP-2 = UTQG: 340 A A (Summer Only)
Cooper Zeon RS3-S = UTQG: 300 A A (Summer Only)
VREDESTEIN ULTRAC SESSANTA = UTQG: 280 AA A (Summer Only)


Here's a good site for description of tires:
http://www.discounttiredirect.com/di...010&vid=016070
More Info: Uniform Tire Quality Grading (UTQG) Uniform Tire Quality Grading is a relative comparison system. Tires are graded by manufacturers in three areas: treadwear, traction and temperature.

The treadwear grade is a comparative rating based on the wear of a tire when tested carefully under controlled conditions. For example, a tire graded 400 should have its useful tread last twice as long as a tire graded 200. Treadwear grades are only valid for comparisons within a manufacturer's product line.

Traction grades represent the tire's ability to stop on wet pavement as measured under controlled conditions on asphalt and concrete test surfaces. As of 1997, the traction grades from highest to lowest are "AA","A","B" and "C". The grades do not take into consideration the cornering or turning performance of a tire.

Temperature grades represent a tire's resistance to heat and its ability to dissipate heat when tested under controlled laboratory test conditions. The grades from highest to lowest are "A","B" and "C" . The grade "C" corresponds to the minimum performance required by federal safety standard.

WHAT IS TPMS?

I know it's still early but let us know how they feel & traction wise.

I just got quoted from Kal in Hawksbury Ont.
for Nitto Invo;
$1150 installed + Tax = $1243
They look really great & Bill just installed them on his Z06 Vette & he said they were a lot quieter then the Goodyear F1
I also saw the Motivos on a car but didn't really like the looks.
So now I want to see the VREDESTEIN ULTRAC SESSANTA tires.
For the Pirellis he was way over priced....$320 F & $420 Rears

Nice. I decided to go with the longer lasting Motivo's as I don't really drive it that hard.

So far they are smoother riding tire for sure. It hasn't been warm enough here yet for me to compare the performance of them.

Did you guys check Tire Rack?? I got my Pirellis from them (4) and no one could match their price. I got the tires the next day also. As far as getting them put on I took them to a local Goodyear and they charged me $40 to do all 4. I do know the manager pretty well though. Tire Rack will tell you where you can get them put on.. Great company to work with...

I was tempted to order from discount tire, but I needed tires immediately. The guy at Kal tire said he was surprised they didn't blow!

Perilli P Zero = UTQG: 220 AA A (Summer Only)

This rating on the Pirelli P Zero...we're lucky to get 35000km on these tires. That rating is around 15000 "miles" or so.

Nitto Motivo = UTQG: 560 A A (All Season)
Continental Extreme Contact DWS = UTQG: 540 A A (All Season)

These two are good for around 35,000 miles (56,000 km) or better...and pretty good tires too for all season.

Not a lot of options if we want good tread wear, is there? LOL

The UTGQ rating is done on a track with regular tire rotation(s) and alignment(s). Now we can't rotate our tires front to rear and rear to front due to the staggered fit of the factory rims. But if a person were to get 4 of the same size rims and tires...the world is yours. Alignment, tire pressure, rotating and driving "decent" are our best friends when it comes to tire wear.

Driving decent? Hmmm....how many of us really do that? LOL LOL

I saw the way you tool down the highway. I'm thinking you're going to have to sell lots of cars to keep on replacing them. LOL LOL

Did you get your car yet?

Just got more quotes from the Montreal area for VREDESTEIN ULTRAC SESSANTA tires....$1530 Installed & another at $1300.
I found a few in the States at $985 & $933 for the same ones.
And found one for Perilli P Zero at $$750 shipped. Man are we ever getting screwed up here for prices .....Looks like I'll be taking a cruise to the states for some new threads this summer
