I am in the market for a new set of tires. I am looking at three brands at the momment. The Cooper Cobra ZHP-01 directional, BF-Goodrich Comp TA-ZR, and the Bridgestone Potenza RE-730. The Cooper's have the best price and treadwear rating, but the Potenza's and Comps are a little softer compound. Considering how quick this car chews off the rubber, what do you guys think?

I have those same rims and I am running Yokohama AVS dB($125). They are very quiet, and grip well, even in the rain. They also have that 'mean' tread look. I cannot tell you how many miles they can handle because they are only 2K old.

Brad . check out Dunlop 5000 Sport if they come in that size . real nice tire at a good price . I had the Comp TA's on before and there is no comparison to the Dunlops for the money .

I would recommend the BF Goodrich G Force tires. I have a set and feel the perform great in the corner and in a strait line. They do a nice job at not greasing up under heavy boost. I purchaced them at Sears. Take a look at BF web page.You get what you pay for.

BFG's are good for the drier climates but the Bridgestones will handle alot better in the wet. If you do decide to go with the BFG's, shop around. Your nearest Wal~mart has to price beat on tires. I got p245/60r14's for the back of my 83t for about $62 apiece on BFG Radial T/A's.
