I'm thinking about the Yoko AVS ES100 for $123/ea.

OR the Kuhmo Escta MX for $147/ea.

I'm going with 275/40/17 all the way around. I may have a hook-up, I hope they can cut the cost down a little. :thumbsup:

I wake up in different world everyday with this car. I made five changes to my M3 and it was perfect until I got rid of it. This car requires a redo every three months. :rolleyes: Since the 315s require new rear wheels I will let the set go for $325 to you or Mike. :thumbsup:

p.s. I would go with the MXs if buying new.

I put the Nitto 555 on my car about two months ago simply because they were about the least expensive I could find.

They're O.K. But, I can't say that I'm 100% satisfied with their bite on the ground though. I can't even say that I'm 80% satisfied. But if they last a while then I guess there's my trade off.

I'll probably try Kuhmos next time.
