    The Michelin Alpin M3 Sports that I had on my STI for winter tires were freakin AWESOME. I could drive in 14 feet of snow upside down in a tunnel with those things and get amazing traction.

    I'm currently searching for new Ultra Performance All-seasons for my 350z. I don't have money to spend to keep on switching tires each season
    The stock tires are decent on dry pavement, I definitely won't be paying the $170 a piece they cost to replace, but I will definitely put them back on the car.

    I was planning on swapping the stock tires back on the stock rims for the summer, but seeing as it's ~$150 each time to swap, I'm just going to pick up another set of wheels for them. I found a set of Work CR 17x7 +47's...it's just too bad I don't have the cash for them right now . He only wants $800 for them too.

    Yeah I know that all too well. It was such a PITA in my Subaru. Crap thing is, the set of Kuhmo Ecsta MX's I bought for the summer were the WORST tires I've ever owned. They lasted seriously only 10k miles. So if I kept my STI, I woulda had to buy new summers AGAIN. Thats why I'm saying Fak It and getting all seasons for my performance sport coupe, though it deserves to have good summer tires on it. I don't track it, so who cares if I don't have awesome track tires. I just want a good tire I can put on and not care about.

    I feel ya, but I need a good summer tire for AutoX, which means I need to have a second set for the winter. But the good thing about having two sets of tires, is that they'll last twice as long . Not in mileage, but in time lol.
