what are some tires that stick?? my sumitomos feel like the slip when i take off, or when i run through the canyons. im lookin something that'll grab the street when i run (which is barely), and hug the pavement when i go canyon running. any ideas?

around $400 or so...this is also my daily driver, so id like to get a set of tires with a long life. i know i cant have everything but id be nice. sorry for the noob questions...i dont really know much about tires.

Sticky tires and tire life doesn't really go together.

My recommendation is Kumho Ecsta MX, I use them for autox, very sticky tires, however I haven't tried any of the others listed to compare with.

for $400 you're kinda limited. the g-force sports have a pretty long life for a cheap sticky tire. the azenis are gone in about 20,000 miles. around 12,000 if you race every weekend. the es100s last a pretty good amount of time too. if you need something w/ a super long life and mediocre grip, khumo ecsta's are one to look into :tu another tire you can look into is the falken ZIEX (pronounced Zee-Ex). they're fairly cheap and last a loooooonnngggggg time.

so for good grip and long lasting tires, that really doesnt happen? But for moderate grip and long lasting, you recomend the khumo ecstas? Anything else you would recomend that has good grip with long last, if thats possible?

you can move up the price ladder and get something that's grippy and long lasting. michelin and goodyear come to mind. as do some dunlop tires (can't remember which one exactly). Potenza S03's....the list goes on and on...the thing is, they don't last too much longer and cost up to 3 times as much as what i get my azenis for. i'd rather be inconvenienced by changing the tires more often rather than spending more up front.

either azenis or the yoks :tu since the g-force sports are new, i haven't seen too many reviews, but the ones i've seen have been good.

I got those G-forces on my car and wow. I've has proxes (fz4's) and some kumho ecsta supra 712's. Those tires do not compare. I recommend those tires to anyone.
