Agreed I see it all the time. Expensive wheels with really cheap and stretched tires. Just asking for something to go wrong.Agree. Boggles my mind somebody will spend $3K on rims and $300 bucks on tires. I was speaking with my tire shop a few weeks ago when I was mounting tires and the guy said most people will drop huge money on rims and than ask for the cheapest tires the shop carries lol.
Sorry if i am posting wrong, new to this forum, i was looking to replace the tires on my 13 civic si coupe, should I go with the Michelin super sports? or the Michelin premiere A/S? I live in Maryland, so it is possible that we can get snow every now and then, but it is not always a super bad thing. also i should add these would be the only tire i buy. not really within my budge to buy both winter and summer tires.
Got about 39K on my 2015 Si, the stock Conti Pro Contact tires were not to bad, actually surprised me. I think I'll be going with Pilot Sport A/S 3's, I think those will be better in the wet.
If you want a tire that'll last long and give you good traction go with Michelin Primacy or Pilot SS, they're pricey but definitely worth it
I just picked up a set of Hankook ventus v2 concept 2's 225/40/18 (standard si size for 14-15) and although reviews are mixed, I can say for daily driving and spirited they are great. REALLY quiet and comfortable w/ a good amount of grip.
Only have a few thousands of miles so I'll update on the longevity. Great for the price you pay. The sidewall doesnt stick out which for me made a big difference because with the stock continental tires they used to rub a lot, and now I almost never rub.
