Yokohama AVS ES100
hankook Ventus R-S2 Z212

I think the dunlop and the yokohama are around the same price.

hankook might be a little more

which tire do you think i should get?

i think the hankook are the next azenis but cheaper and better in weather

or should i just get the dunlop or yokohama only? because summer is over really?

or shall i mix and match the dunlop and yoko? haha

what do you guys think?


or i can just wait till spring and get cheap used tires.
Is there any other brands that any of you recommend for good weather and track, and thats a good price?


sorry for my grammar

They don't call them Dunlop for nothing. Before you even get a chance to do your first tire rotation you will have a lot of tire noise from the tires cupping. All you hear going down the road is "dunLOP! dunLOP! dunLOP!" Just speaking from experiance on several different types of Dunlop tires. Your best bet is BFGoodrich, Bridgstone, Yokohama, or Nitto in my opinion. If your car is lowered and has slight negative camber I have HEARD that Nitto's new tire for cars with negative camber are really good tires. BFGoodrich, in my opinion, is one of the best all season tires out there right now. If you are going budget, Kumho is in my opinion the best budget tire out there, though most would dissagree. I see all different brands all day long, because I am a technician for an Infiniti dealership, and Dunlop is by far the worst wearing tire in the market today. They perform well, so if you don't mind the noise and early replacement of your Dunlops, go for it, otherwise look into a midrange or budget, you will get the same quality, if not better, than some of the more well known brands. You are paying for advertising and name. Just my opinion.

I've had 3 sets of ES100s. A set on both of my Integras, and a set on my Spec V. When I purchase another 240..guess what's going on it?

Yeah, that's right, ES100s. There isn't a better tire for the money, hands down.

I never had that problem. I'm down to maybe 3% tread on my set on the Spec V, and I'd say they lost their usable grip around 10% or so. I've been hard on my tires this time, but they still lasted me around....25k miles. I mean really hard. About a dozen autocross events, weekly touge drives here in Colorado, and just general asshauling around in the past 25k miles.

They get a bit slippery in tempatures under 45 degrees, though. But that's usually the same story for all sport tires. Warm them up, and they're fine.
