preludeman92 is cool... so far.
Firestone Firehawk Indy 500
195/60/15
Great tire. Lots of wet and snow traction, enough dry traction, and long tread life. These all season tires have been on my lowered prelude for 21k miles, and they have just under 1/2 their tread left. There is a tread warranty of 50k miles on them. They're quiet in daily driving, but will let you know when you get to their relatively high limits. With a few extra PSI in them, they won't disappoint on the auto-x course either.

Goodyear Alegra A/S tires
185/65/14
Significantly better than the tires they replaced. They aren't the greatest, but they at least make driving in the rain not scary. They don't squeel around every corner either. I cannot comment on treadwear since I've only had them on my CB7 for around 1500 miles.

Kelly cheap-o tires (4 for $109, installed out the door)
185/65/14
Complete and utter crap. When it was we out even starting in 2nd gear (automatic) didn't keep them from spinning. I could be doing 35mph in the rain, floor the gas and the tires would still spin. I couldn't take turns in the dry either. They completely suck. Good for burnouts

Goodyear Eagle RS-A
205/50/17 (on a Mazda 3 2.3L automatic)
Not bad in the dry. They have enough grip to make you give up on most public roads before the tires do. However, add in cold, gravel, snow, or rain and these are different animals. All they do is spin off the line (even starting in 2nd/3rd gear) and they won't corner worth shit. Not a true all-season tire.

Hankook Ventus HRII (I Think, they're UHPAS)
205/40/17
Good all around tire, but they wear quickly. 8000 miles on them on a lowered prelude, and they are worn oddly already. When new they impressed me with what they could do.

General Exclaim A/S
195/65/15 (02 accord 5spd)
A heavy tire. You can feel it just in normal driving. They have significant dry grip, more than enough snow/wet grip and a lot of treadlife. 12k miles on them and they show little to no wear.

I'm about to buy Kuhmo Ecsta SPT's in 215/40/17's for my prelude. I'll review them when I get some miles/track time on them.

I didn't get my Khumo SPT's because tirerack stopped their special 2 hours before I went to buy them. So I got General Exclaim UHP's in 215/40/17.

They work really well in the wet, stick like glue on slippery/loose pavement, and more than hold up with other more track oriented tires out on a road couse. My prelude is down 40 hp on the rest of the preludes I went out on the track with and I could more than keep up with them because of how much grip these tires gave me in the corners. Their limits are easily found and very predictable. I'll probably buy another set unless I find something else that is good for cheap.

Federal ss595

I would say 8/10. I have no complaints for these tires. They are wearing well for how sticky they are. They were great when I took them to the track and they are very good in the rain. Also, For a cheap tire cant go wrong and yes I would buy them again.

Kumho Ecsta ASX, I rate them slightly above average. Overall a decent tire, but I guess I was expecting a lot.

Kumho Ecsta Supra 712 (205/50/15) - 2/10
Bought them brand new. Decent price, VERY shitty, poor grip on both dry and wet, never got a chance to try them in snow..Prolly wouldn't do much better..Since then I have never bought another set of Korean tires

Bridgestone Potenza RE92 (205/60/15); (205/50/16) - 6/10
Got them used both times, about 30% tread left..Decent grip in the summer, can get quite sticky in hot hot weather..Wet, not so good...Snow, BAAD..Treadwear is not so good either..Wear out quite a bit on the fast side..

Michelin Energy Plus MXV4 (205/60/15); (225/50/17) - 8.5/10
Excellent all-season tires..Perform REALLY well in wet conditions, and didn't let me down during snow either! It was a bit of a struggle since they're not exactly winter tires, but sufficient nevertheless! Dry, eh..As long as you don't push it around the corners, you are okay..They also seem to have quite a long life, didn't wear out that easy.Last but not least, quite possibly the lightest tires I've had so far! Can be a bit pricey if you buy them brand new though..

Dunlop Sport SP-5000 (195/50/16) - 6/10
Didn't get to drive on them for too long..Very good traction on dry roads, not too thrilled about them when wet though...Not good enough for my driving..

Bridgestone Potenza G-III (205/55/16) [Current] - 9/10
Used, about 70% tread left..So far these tires have proven themselves to be quite sticky! In both dry and wet conditions! Actually they feel about the same in both conditions...I can take corners really hard when it's wet, and they will grip the roads as if the roads are dry...Very happy with them! The only complain I have is that they are a bit noisy...Could be because I have half of my interior stripped for this summer though

205/50/16 Nitto NeoGen AA traction, 280 treadwear.
Just got them on today. Significant amount of road noise at speed. Excellent dry braking and traction. Supposedly engineered to be run on lowered vehicles. The inner tread is continuous and thicker than the outer tread.

is there anyone running a 215/60 or a 215/55 on CD5 rims? i wanted to know if thats too wide and if i would expect rubbing.

Presently: BFGoodrich 195/60r/15 8/10
but then again im running those up front, A yokohama touring on the back and another off brand on the other side. they grip very well. im gone around a 90 degree turn at about 40mph and they held their own. i may get some more yokohama touring because i like their tread pattern. id want to try them out and see how they handle.

Got some BFGoodrich G-Force Sports put on about a month ago. So far, They're great, low noise, thinner sidewall than my previous Fuzion Zri's and Tremendous grip. Don't really know how well they are in the rain, because ever since i put them on in early Oct. it hasn't rained! at all! I'd rate them a 10/10, they're perfect to me.

Idk, aren't OEM 15s only 5.5 inches in width? a 205 tire would be about a little over 8 inches in width at the contact patch. That might be risky running THAT wide of a tire on those. The only way would be to mount them up and see if there are any issues

yeah i think running 215s in general in the back makes me rub in turns, i'm going to try and roll my fenders this weekend.

Kumho Ecsta AST's- They're only a few weeks old, but so far they stick up to 50 Mph w/o squealing (at least none I can hear) Interstate merges rock with them.
