    What tires should I get?

    Time for new tires, I have decided to replace all four, instead of just the back 2 (front 2 are new dunlop gt qualifiers) I want something a little bit better than type T tires....something I can drive a LITTLE aggressively in. Im not going to be going crazy....but I want to know that I will be safe when im having some fun : P Also, im not rich...so I really dont want to spend more than 375-400 for 4 new tires, installed.

    I loved my Falken Ziex 912's, and I got them from Discount Tire Direct for 340 with 20% cashback from Ebay, so basically paid 250 for them.

    Also, on an AWD car, ALWAYS replace all 4 tires, unless you get the new ones shaved to match the depth of the older two, you can ruin diffs if you don't.

    Ah, well good on ya, I'd advise getting the new tires on ASAP, don't want to risk damaging your center diff any further than it may already be.
