I am in the STU category and I am looking high gripping street tires based on performance/price. Obviously, not Bridgestone, Michelin or Pirelli as they are too expensive...
I came out with a few tires (235/40/18) options:
Kumho MX $133 from TireRack
Falken Azenis RT-615 $137 from Vulcun Tire
So as you can see, the budget should be around $130-140 range. I am not looking into those competition tires as they often need shaving and are expensive.
So any other tires recommendation?
