I am not a fan of the 888's at all as they did not last me more than 3.5 hours of use on the rear.They work better on a smaller lower powered car.I have been running Nitto NT05's which might not be the quickest but are very durable and get 13-15 days out of them.Toyo RA1's & Michelin PSS's have also worked OK for me with the PSS being a great wet tire but probally a worse dry tire than the others.I have BFG Rivals on order but I understand that they will not be here till July.
Think I've decided to go with Apex ec-7 18x10 square with either Nitto NT05 or NT01, 275/35/18. I've been looking online and discount tire direct seems to have a great price on the Nitto's. Any local tire shop in GTA that would have a good deal on these or should I order them from US??
