PS: these will be size 225/45/17 mounted on Rota Torque 17x7.5 ET45 on progress springs with NO camber links if that makes any difference....
Yes. Rotate your Tires every 6k miles instead of 15 and expect to get about 1/2 the normal life out of a set of tires.
I'm a big fan of the Eagle GT's. Loved them on my Honda, and I had a lowering kit with whacked out camber and I tore up whatever I put on there in short order. Tried about 4 different tires and liked the performance of the Eagle's the best.
i rotate every 3k so hopefully camber won't eat up my tires

I have Kumho ASX's and I like them. They're all season so I can keep my wheels on right up until it snows... which is great because I hate the stockers. John_in_the_LBC raves about his Sumitomo HTR Z III. I've also heard great things about the General Exclaim UHP and Kumho SPT. I've heard Neogens have stiff sidewalls and can be noisy.. but thats about it, no personal experience.
My suggestion is to get A/S tires as you dont really want to put snows on simply because its below 50 degrees.
yeah, the sumitomos are darn good for less half the price of most other "extreme performance" tires.
i don't know how long they will last yet...but they don't seem to be wearing fast.
They're quieter than the oem RSAs, stickier, predictable (lose traction gradually rather than all at once)...but i also have suspension mods.
i will say that they are not the most interesting looking tires (tread wise)
how long have you had the sumitomos (mileage). haha and ya would be nice to have an aggressive looking tire from the rear...sumitomos leave something left to be desired
...i still really can't narrow it down...i mean i still dont even know if i should go all season or just high perofmrane
