    Nice kill...

    Pirelli PZero Neros for performance in both the dry and rain. Lightweight tire, and worked well at autocrosses for me too.

    2000 Firehawk convertible 6spd- 12.52 @ 114.7 mph. 2.09 60'

    Sold: 2004 Mini Cooper S. 14.95 @ 93.8 mph.
    Sold: 2004 GTO 6 spd. 13.4 @ 104.5 mph
    Sold: 2002 WRX 5spd. 13.39 @100.7 mph. 1.81 60'

    If u want some good dry/rain tires the Goodyear Eagle F1's are nice. They outperform S-03's in the wet but the S-03's outperform the F1's in the dry. All depends on what u want. The Michelin Pilot Sport 2's are nice as well.

    Just read the review they gave at tirerack.com and choose whatever tire suits your needs best.

    How about the Bridgestone Pole Position S-03's? They are a very good tire but a little pricey. I purchased Kumho MX's and they seem to work very good in the wet and dry and they cost a lot less than the S-03's (the S-03's are better in the wet).

    If it helps, I got BFG Traction T/A's. Awesome wet and dry grip (improved my 60ft time by about .3 seconds with them). Also, we're in an ice storm now and I'm plowing through it with no problems.

    Just get whatever's on sale, it doesn't really matter, as long as they hold air.

    everyone is going to give you a different opinion. just research around and find which one's best suit your needs in the price range you could afford.

    That is SO not true! There is a big difference in tires. There are many good ones (like the ones mentione) and there are junky tires as well. I speak from experience.

    I have the Eagle F1's, a very good choice. I think I may try the Toyo Proxes T1-S next.

    I've probably tired every "performance" tire out there, and for the money, I still say the stock tires are the best matched tires for an STi. Just my opinion.
