Kumho ECSTA 712 or Yokahama ES100 would both be approx. $100 each and are excellent all-around tires.

The Kumho ECSTA MX or Falken Azenis Sport would be a step up in handling, for approx. $15-20/tire additional. FYI - these tires are softer, and therefore won't last as long as the 712 or ES100.

actually, i'd recommend the sumitomo HTRZ-II over the 712s and ES100s any day of the week.

$99/tire at tirerack.com.

Peter,

How much better/different are the HTRZ-II's, versus the HTRZ's? I'm somewhat familiar w/the HTRZ's, and they didn't seem to quite match the 712's or ES100's for handling (although there's not a lot of difference). However, the HTRZ's look like a totally different design.

BTW - the HTR+ (mentioned in a different post) is an entirely different tire. Decent, but doesn't offer quite the level of handling as the other tires mentioned.

steve,

yeah, the HTRZ-II is a completely different design. i don't own a set, but i've driven on them a few times (friend's car), and since i've owned a set of 712s, i can say that the HTRZ-II's offer much more grip, better steering response most importantly, they are confidence-inspiring.

i'm debating between these, a set of kumho ecsta MX or falken azenis for my next set of tires.
