New Tires

Ok so my factory Michelins have finally worn out. Not bad for 28000 miles starting at 3 miles from the factory and a few spins while racing in the beginning (wasnt to smart then). Well I need some input from anyone will good experience with theirs. I dont care about 1/4 grip or road noise all I want is good traction on the road while taking turns fast and good grip in raining conditions. I am interested in starting the SCCA since we have it in my area so thats where I plan on driving hard. Thanks for the input.

These are the tires I have used for autocrossing:
Toyo FZ4 - suck!
Yokohama A520s - great stick, good wet weather, but loud!
Kumho 712s - good stick, good wet weather, inexpensive
Falken Azenis - great stick, good wet weather, inexpensive

What mods do you have done? You live in Hong Kong and they have SCCA?

If you want maxium traction go for DOT Racing tires: Kumho VictorRacers, Kumho Ecsta V700s

Good choice!!!

I have the Kumhos, and I love them. I figured for 60 bucs each, I couldn't go wrong.
The Kumhos are not the greatest. Rain is a bit slippery but once you wear them down they get better. The Azenis just keep gripping no matter what.
Here's the crappy list:
Nittos (any of them except the drag radials for drag racing)
Toyo FZ4
stock Michelin tires
