Question 18x8 ultraleggera

I just got my 18x8 ultraleggeras and I was wanting to know what size tire I should put on, and maybe some brands and models. I was thinking of Kumho ECSTA MX. I just want a summer/autocross tire. More importantly the size.

I had some Ecsta's once. Hated them. Squealed more than a virgin on her wedding night, and had horrible grip!

Why don't you spend a little more and look at the Continental Contisport 2, Toyo Proxes or Bridgestone Potenza S03's?

uh ... wrong

the RE01R did not replace the S03 ... the RE050A Pole Position did ... the Re01R is the best dry performing tire from Bridgestone and recorded the highest g-forces we have ever seen in our tire testing and the Advan Neova AD07 is a close second ... both are in the new "extreme performance" catagory
