Tire dilemma...

Been getting obsurdly loud road noise at low speeds (from the front end). Asked the dealer to check it 3 times... They said everything is A-okay . Had all 4 wheels balanced, alingment checked, Bushings replaced... still nothing.

Finally an answer today! Took my car to Bullet Performance here in Costa Mesa. Mickey, the owner took my car around the block to see what all the noise was about. We get back, and he starts checking the front tires. He has me rub my had around the inside track of the tire... Egg shaped lumps EVERYWHERE. . The answer!

Here's my Dilemma. Currently the car is Running Pirelli Nero's in the rear 255/35zr18's. Fronts are Pirelli P-zero Rosso's 225/40zr18's. I'm stuck at what tire to buy. The Rosso's look sweet, but people complain that they pull all over the road and wear fast (exactly what i was expierencing and I F_U_C_King hate it). So i dont want to get Rosso's again, unless maybe a new front set will cure the issue . I don't want to get Nero's up front because even though i'd have all matching tires, they have bulky sidewalls, wear quick, and also follow lines in the road .

What do I do? If i go to another tire brand I'll have to buy all 4 (sorry, but I'll mix models, but not brands). Suggestions please!!!


If it matters, I'm running 18" Breyton Magics
