    Question What Tires is everyone running?

    I am hitting 16,000 miles with my CTVS and am nearing time to change tires for the SECOND time. I have been running the Goodyear Super Car run flats and not only are they costly, they dont last worth a crap. I don't burn rubber either. lol

    Anyway, I am curious... What tires are on your CTSV? Comments?
    Thanks for your input... I will be a buyer in less than 1000 miles.

    I'm on my second set of tires. I went with the Dunlop Winter Sport M3's back in October and they won't wear down. I have 8,000 miles on them and they look brand new (I'll take pics). They don't feel as good as a high performance tire and now that the roads have warmed up they squeak and squeal a lot. I should buy new summer tires but I only have 7-8 months left on the lease, so I'm going to wait it out.

    The goodyears on my car went out at 5,000 miles. switched 2 michelin's high pro and they are great and the ride is much smoother. They ride like the ones on my 05' sts except they are zero pressure.

    I plan on getting KDW2's. If for some reason I don't get those I'll get the Bridgestone S03's.

    I've got BF Goodrich KDW2 and really like them in the rain. They corner well but I bought the stock tire size 245/18 and I spin them much to easily. I wish I would have gone with a wider tire now.

    I've got about 2,000 on the Toyo Proxes so far and no complaints. They feel very near the same performance as the run flats in dry weather (90%). Ride is much better and they are a vast improvement over the run flats in the rain.

    I've got Dunlop SP Sport Maxx. Great tire, compares very well with the S-03 at TireRack.

    Phenominal in the rain, great ride and sharp responses. I highly recommend them.

    I'm on my second set of GS-D3s. This is the first time I've have them in hot weather (first came and went during winter/spring months), and they rock! 1.05g+ is a piece of cake on my favorite turns.

    Re: What Tires is everyone running?

    GSD3's but I'd try the Toyo's for the next set. Except they don't make a 275/40/18 in the T1-R yet. So I'll stay with the GSD3's. Strangely, only the rears seem to be wearing. I'll told the wife I just can't explain it. Must be my worn out muffler bearings.

    I don't start the shit, I just stir it a little.
