Default dunlop direzza dz101's...

can't find any reveiws on these so here's my $.02.......
soooooo i had a nice little tire seperation and needed some new tires like ASAP. as in the same day,and it was 3:30 pm,tire shops close around 6. toned my choices down ALOT it was either these or some bfg g-force sports or somtheing like that. i've never been a bfg fan tho..... i was trying to cop some 235's at least, but alas stock size it was due to stock.(the same reason i ended up with these...)
i was happy to see that they still had the same rim protector bead as the oem tires. also i was kinda surprised that the sidewalls really weren't that soft.not oem status,but not bad.. road noise is noticeably less,and i no longer feel it when i run over a leaf so that is nice. i haven't gotten on it too hard yet, but even in 45 degree weather,these got some nice grip. they are more vocal then the re070 as well. that could be good/bad dependeding on your preference....
all in all, a damn good DD/aggresive driving tire IMO....
*edit*
grabbed some corners , these feel really good . i have to get used to the car just gripping again vice sliding a little got about 1k miles on them
i know these aren't popular tires, but they are doin me pretty good

Word is they are a big step up from the FM's they replaced. Good value, nice daily driven spirited summer tire that should wear well.

they're def a nice step up from the fm's. my freind had them on his evo, they where pretty weak. good for a dd, but that was it. they where soft and wore like crap. the sidewalls on those where a joke, like something you'd put on your grandma's buick

i agree^ these are def a huge step up. but like i said, these weren't my first choice by any means. i'm just happy they turned out to be pretty good. they will be DD tires only tho, so honestly it doesn't matter too much. they do have good grip and ride smooth,so that's pretty much all i need for now. when i get rims, then some real tires will be rollin again . i'm happy for now
