Tires?

From experience what are the best tires for a 13' SS. The stock Pirelli's don't seem to have very good tread life; and I don't test my 0 to 60 every time I take off. Lol. Any suggestions?

If you're looking for longer treadlife, I would suggest....

Continental ExtremeContact DWS
Nitto Motivo
General G-Max AS-03

Mine is also a daily driver. I replaced the P-Zero's eith Nitto Motivos and am very happy so far. I've had them about 2 months now. I find the ride smoother and quieter.

Change mine for Goodyear Eagle GT... Better grip in the rain and I don'nt have that dragging with road gutters anymore. I Love them. Nice tread too.

Does any have the Nitto NT 420 S.. I like these because I can have the 255 in front and the 285 in the rear. The treadlife rating isn't as good as the Motivo but comparable at 420 where as the Motivo is 560.. I can't find the Motivo in the sizes I want stated above..

I wouldn't suggest the Pirelli's to anyone.. So far with all the great suggestions and my own research the Nitto Motivos are the best high performance all season tires, but im thinking about going with the Nitto NT 420 s .
