Tires!!!

Anyone got some recommendations on a good tire? I am just going to put 2 on the front and move the front to the back (non staggered) since the fronts are still pretty good... just looking for something to get me to spring when I put Wheels on.

I read somewhere sometime that michelin had a great tire for negative camber but cant remember what model it was..

any idea?

It's a squared setup? If you're just replacing 2, replace with the same tires you have on the rear.

If you're not happy with your existing tires, you should replace all four, and try to recoup some of your money by selling the two good tires.

For an all-season option, you can't go wrong with the Continental ExtremeContact DWS.
