I have 205-55's on my 16" ASA's. They ride pretty decent. I have Bridgestone Potenza's....steer away from those lol they sound like truck tires and feel like them too. Hankook and Fuzion make some nice, cheap summer tires. Check outTire Rack - Your performance experts for tires and wheels

Hey there, whats up?

anyway, back to the thread, when i bought my ng900 it came with some pretty young fuzion tires on it and did not like them at all, got ride of them right away, then I got pirelli p-zeros and I liked them alot, but they wear way too fast. I am trying dunlop track stars this time, I know they will be loud eventually but I want lots of grip for less price. One tire brand I have seen that I am really happy with is general tire. tire rack has them and they are not real expensive. We have theire winter tires on 3 of our cars and their summer exclaim UHP's on 2 of our cars in the summer. I am pretty happy with them decent grip, low noise, however I just think they have a little too soft side walls for my NG900 which as i said i want lots of grip on seeing as i am upping power figures soon. In my opinion if you want a pretty cheap well rounded tire for the summer get the general exclaim UHP. However if you are looking for all seasons, well i recommend not to. All of these i would recomend to have the manufacture 205-50-16 size.

Why did you dislike the fuzions? I have fuzion HRI's on my coupe, they grip amazing and barely wear at all. They are also dirt cheap compared to most tires.

When I had them on my car I thought that they gave the car a really bad ride, they were noisy, which isn't the worst thing in the world, but in my opinion they did not have enough grip to make up for it and justify me buying another set. But then again that's my opinion. The things that I didn't like about them the most was the way they made the car feel and the noise. They were fairly new when I got the car and they were still like that. Then again I comparing them with the pirelli p zeros which are pretty good tires aside from wear.
