205/45/16 General Exclaim UHP $430/set Tax in, mounted and balanced
They seem to have good reviews, they use that Silica tread tech that Kumho uses on the SPT and others... Apparently much better traction especially in wet.
My application will mainly be commuting to work... plus i am currently running 175/70r14 toyo ulta800's, so I'm sure there will be a performance increase.
I may try these Generals... but I'm still undecided
I think those Generals are the same tires that Crappy Tire sells as their UHP tires they also seem to be close on price. I have a set of 205/50 16's on my SL2. They track straight, stick ok but I've started to hear a slapping sound that I think might be a belt that has slipped, I've checked for stones, found a nail which was repaired but still get this thwap thwap thwap sound so I'm really hesitant to recommend these.
Prior to this I've run Yokohama A008's, and Bridgestone RE750's on my SL2 which were excellent summer tires. In hindsight I should have spent the extra $$ to get another set of Bridgestones instead of going cheap.
Our SL1 has 215/40 16 Kuhmo's that we got from Greg, sticky tires, wander a bit and be careful as these make my speedo 6km/h off, eg 100 kph is actually 94 kph as checked with a GPS.
