Question Which Yokohama to get for my 05 STI?

I can get good deals on Yokohamas so I'm thinking of getting them and use them later when my stock ones die...

Advan Neovas, Advan Sport, or Advan AVS Sport?

I'm looking for summer performance and don't care about price.

Anyone has Yokohamas on their ride that can give me some feedback?
Thanks.

If I could get a "good deal", I'd go for the AD07's. No doubt.

I'm going with either a 235/40/18 or a 255/40/18.

Why can't they make a 245 width...?

I'm also looking for a daily driver tires because my car is my daily driver... but I want summer performance since it rarely rains in LA... also I don't think its good to have tires that need to be warmed up before they start performing well.

They are the OEM tires on EVOs. One of the best summer performance tires made. Cost big bucks and only last 8-10k miles at best, but they'll be fun miles.

Are you talking about the AO46 or the Neovas?
