I need to purchase new tires for my STi. I'm looking for reasonable priced set of tires. I was looking at the falken ziex 612 and Dunlop direzzas d101, any other recommendations?

you looking for all season or summer or winter?

You going to drag race on them? auto cross? or daily drive?

How much money are you willing to spend?

It's mostly an every day driver with an occasion to drive aggressive. No more than 800 bucks. Summer tires.

From who if memory serves me right I only paid max 600 for mine but yours could also be different size. I'll have to find the receipt when I get home.

In before Uncle Scotty.....

Federal RS-R's. from various online retailers for about $100/tire. I'm running 255/40/17s and they cost me about $110/tire.
