Where does the Continental Extreme Contact DW fit into all this?
>>
>>14208298

I run two sets of tires because of winter. When temperatures dip in my city, all seasons have fuck all for traction. No need for hektik slidez into the back of some retard in a beige Corolla.

>BFGoodrich G-Force Rival S

These are all Extreme summer tires. They are purposefully made to have more dry then wet traction compared to lower categories. Also there wet performance when compared is significantly lower.

Even tirerack lists Extreme tires as being, "Extreme Performance Summer
You want extreme dry street performance and are willing to trade some comfort and hydroplaning resistance to get it."

> trade hydroplaning resistance

nah
>>
>>14208385
>It isn't a problem.

They are still inferior to other summer tires that perform better in the wet and dry combined

op's point was what is the best street tire for street conditions
>>
>>14208290
Because in regular street driving conditions they are simply the best, period
>>
>>14208248
There are other summer tires that perform better in dry, but PSS are the best performers in both dry and wet

literally google any review, tests, etc
>>
>>14208294
Hope you saved up cause you'll never go to another tire again

>summer tires have better performance in wet traction than all season.

Looking forward to it.
>>
>>14208528
If your temperatures don't fall below 45 degrees Fahrenheit, a max performance summer tire will perform the best on the street in wet road conditons compared to extreme

unless you get a dedicated tire made ONLY for wet driving conditions
>>
>>14208554
*extreme and all season

those are what we call track day tires here

>>14208382
very close but still only better in the wet iirc
>>
>>14208565
ok, so as long as it's not snowing then the all season will be the best

what do you use?
>>
>>14208577
we do get icey roads and wet winters as well as wet sumemrs so it has to be all seasons or death bro

And MASSIVELY cheaper

I'm not a set of wheels for road set of wheels for track kinda guy so I needed a good 3 season that works all the time and decent treadwear.

Also they were on sale kek.

I run either semi-slick or cheap shit i can burn away.

Anything in between is fucking stupid.
>>
>>14208589
Pilot Sports a/s 3 is an all season tire
>>14208590
Unless it rains more than half the time out of the year, you would have been better off with the PSAS 3 since it performs better overall

>>14208608
Please stop shilling Shitshulin Pilot Sharts a/ss 3s

No, they are excellent tires. If the MPSS didn't exist they would be the best all rounder by a considerable margin instead.

These don't work when it's raining. I spend 99% of my spirited driving off the track.

>>14208637
semi-slick can't run properly on pavement that isn't pristine and dry either

It's worthless off the track
>>
>>14208637
I run hard as fuck in the rain. It's my favorite time to drive and the challenge alone, having the wipers swooshing, and hearing all the water resistance and splashes from the car is wayyy more exhilarating than driving in the dry

Pfft, if you're a faggot. I had Kumho V70 on my S13 for the entire australia winter and it was aight

are you me?

>>14208702
Tire is specifically designed to be shit in uneven, bumpy, cracked, or wet pavement.

It is useless on a fun twisty backroad since that shit aint never gonna be as smooth as a major public road.

There's also way more standing water, mud, and other things that send you reeling

>Kumho's specially formulated, high-grip silica competition tread compound into a directional design that features wide tread ribs to maximize dry cornering grip while enhancing handling and treadlife. Directional tread notches and circumferential grooves help preserve wet traction when run at full tread depth. Kumho advises that the Ecsta V700 Racetrack & Autocross Only radial must be shaved prior to use in dry conditions.

You literally only get to pick one, and both are shit on the street anyways compared to a proper street tire.

What tires should I get?

245/40r18
275(Or285)/35r18

Summer only performance tires, will very rarely ever see light rain. Budget for the whole set is $500-$600.

Currently looking at the Sumitomo HTR Z IIIs

>>14208165
I'm rolling on 15s and Michelin don't want my buck.
So I'm Uniroyal Rain Sport 3.
>>
>>14208742
Except i used the V70s in both the dry and the wet, and the wet was fine albeit slow and the dry was much, much better than other 'high performance' shit i've used like RE050 and P-Zero.

You might want to work on your budget. Wide ass tires cost more and so do the good ones.

Also with your power output/weight you would be better off with a Dunlop, Michelin or ehhh maybe bridgestone or goodyear

Fair enough, I kind expected that answer. I'm trying to fit wheels and tires into my tax return, and the wheels are going to be about $900.

The way the car currently sits, it can't really utilize everything a nice set of PSS's can offer. I figured a cheaper set of grippy tires will get me by until I go through the suspension overhaul.

The problem is finding wheels with the size/backspacing requirements I have, since I'm going big brakes. I figured buy once cry once on the wheels, and upgrade the tires when I exceed the limits of a more affordable set. As it sits right now I'm not willing to push the car in the corners.
