well what kind of driving do you want to do? do you want all seasons or summer tires? do you like a soft ride with no noise, at the sacrifice of steering response? or do you like a stiff tire with max grip and awesome steering response, at the sacrifice of ride comfort and noise?

there are plenty of very good affordable tires out there, they are all different though. to be honest, more attention should be paid to tires than wheels. good tires are the best thing you can do for your suby.

OK i want all seasons, i never drive offroad and i occasionally turn at high speeds to get those lateral g's in me. I probably want a tire that's inbetween soft and no noise and hard w/ a lot of noise, i don't want a lot of noise but a little noise to get some extra performance won't bother me.

Thanks a lot and let me know your opinions

If you order the tires and rims from tirerack.com, your tires will come mounted and balanced. They did a great job with the balancing on my rims, and used hidden weights.
