Time to put some new rubber on... I was wondering if anyone replaced their tires yet? I'm sticking with the stock SH rims, so I need something that would be OEM sizes. I'm looking at the dunlop sp 9000's? Any good? Any recommendations? Also, anyone know of a good tire shop in jersey? Thanks guys.

FYI - What I have been doing recently is reading the tesimonials for each tire at Tirerack.com. If you choose a specific tire and read more about it, there are links to compound information and testimonials from users of that particular tire. I have actually learned a lot about certain tires and how customers liked them.

That's why I picked that one
the feedback on that site is very informative. I'd just like to find out how the tires feel on a lude, and how much I should be spending.

I have a set of 225/45/16 Yoko A520s on my car right now. Good tires, and the 225s look really aggressive.

Where are you located?

I'm in New Jersey... Based on feedback found on tirerack... seems like a lot of people aren't too crazy about them. I'd really love to get some sp 9000's tho.

I'm running the Dunlop W10 225/45/16 on factory SH rims lowered about 1.75" and they fit fine. On full lock turns at slow speed theres a slight rub on the front driver side inner fenderwell but that's it. I hear the SP9000's are amazing but a few people say their response isn't that sharp because of the deep treads. I'd like to try them for my next tire but in the 17" I want to go to there not available.

As for good tire shops in NJ I couldn't help you none of them impress me.

Check out the ratings for the Pirelli 7000SS. The ratings are pretty good. I am in NJ as well and I find the dry and wet grip to be better than stock for a lower price. Can't beat it. Only real high performance tire for all season.

although running 225's on stock rims isn't recommended, there are quite a few of us doing so anyway--including myself.
i'm on Sumitomo HTR-Z, 225/45 on stock rims. they're very sticky, no squeal, and very good in the rain as well. they are *summer* tires, but i've had them on since last fall, and you know how much snow we've had in the tri-state area.... well, long story short -- i'm very satisfied.
