One of the items which faces decent to high levels of wear and most of all keeps the car safe on the tarmac...TIRES.

I am a fan of Bridgestone in particular.  Very hard side wall and awesome dry grip

Anyone has experience with Dunlop? Mine is stock. Driving fast on wet roads has been nothing short of "cardio" exercise for me... Probably burn as much calories as a F1 driver...

do check out the michelin PSS (Pilot Super Sports). they have excellent wet and dry, and also excellent tyre life. They're probably the best tyres you can right now in the market. The grip is phenomenal.

Noted. Thanks! Performance-wise, better grip does it create more thirst?

Yes Mike. When I changed from stock tyres to PSS, my FC went up half a notch. Even when cruising you can feel the firm. PSS is superb on dry. Not the best in wet so I heard.

Went up half a notch? U mean fuel consumption becomes better or worse?

I'm on 20" forged rims (lighter than stock 18" Lyras) and staggered set up. FC still the same at 7.6L per 100km or lesser if the drive is longer.

Actually...any tire that provides awesome grip levels would mean wear rate will be high...simple equation.

 

Its like power...it cannot be equated to good fuel ecomomy.

 

I guess the other factor is our Cats are heavy and this does inc

Have tried both CSC and PSS, IMO PSS is one of the best tires around for wet and dry.

 

 

If u are talking abt pure dry tires, nothing beats semi-slicks like PZero Trofeo, Pilot Sport Cup, etc. But beware of aquaplaning during rainy days.
