Anybody know if these tires are any good? If so, what's good and bad about them?

I've read good things about this one.....Plus it'll handle the higher speeds if you decide to eliminate the speed limiter.

Yes, it's a little more expensive than the one you're looking at.

the first tire posted by holden is for a sport compact car, although it can be used on any vehicle. The second tire posted by mean goat, is more recognized in the sports car field as one of the better tires on the market today.

See, before getting tires, you need to know a few things. How will the tire be used, how much rain do you get, how hard do you drive, are you a racer or a corner carver? Thats why I like doing research at TireRack. They have a scoring system for each tire and you can base your decision on how the tire scored.

OR, you could just ask me since I love doing research.

I haven't had experience with those, BUT I do know for a fact that my BFGoodrich KDW2's are awesome for handling, and great in wet conditions! (Although they may look like an all terrain tire by the picture on that site, they are Z rated, and are night and day in comparison to the stock 17s.)
