Best tire with 140+ treadwear rating
I'm getting to the point where my 2 year old Azenis will be needing to be replaced. I'm needing two 315/30/18 and two 275/35/18 tires.
I've browsed the tire places online and it looks like I have 3 choices. The Dunlop Direzza Star SPEC, the Kumho XS and the Nitto NT-05.
I've tried some search strings on google but can't really get my question answered. Specifically i'm looking for what tire will provide the best grip/longevity for HEAVY cars.
My current Azenis don't like heat and my 37-whatever pound car, they just get greasy and go away.
I was wondering if anyone had any experience or feedback on any of these tires. I know MFE has built a shrine to the Star Spec's and honestly that is my current choice of tire. Also, a local STI runs that tire and is only .9 slower than his Hoosier A6 tire runs.
Before I made any purchases, I was hoping to get some feedback from the Mustang community.
Thanks. And yes, I will probably hafta' mix tire brands front to back for my size needs as one company doesn't offer both of my needs. No biggie, i'm OK with that.
