Default Need new tires, what should I get?

My old Sumitomo HTR ZIIs were the perfect tires to me. They gripped well in wet/dry, they were cheap, and they lasted almost 30k miles. 3 of my new ones are defective so I need new tires.

What would you guys recommend? I need something that grips and lasts a long time. Low road noise would be nice, but it's not essential. I need something I can get in 225/45/18 for $140 or less. I've been told to look into BFGoodrich g-Force Sports.

Like I said in another thread, I'll be REALLY interested to see how these g-Force Sports perform.

you need to learn what you are talking about/doing with tires so ya get the right ones.....you are killing your acceleration and gearing with too tall a tire and adding unnecessary weight.

'thin'????....man....that's a good one.

Yes learn the proper tire size that your car needs. A 225/45/18 is too tall.
