Tires, Tires, Tires!!!

Okay, I've asked this question before, but I have to see if anyone new is listening. Best tires for street (aggressive) performance for a 954?

I personally like the dunlops qualifiers. I would recommend the bridgestones those are really good tires as well. Consider price range and what you want out of a tire.

Agreed about the price. It's hard to justify the $420 a set every 1500 miles. I have been curious if anyone has liked the brdgestones, so thanks for the word Streetfighter.

420.00 a set? For what? 275.00 to the house.
