Falken 512's, even though the wear out pretty quickly. Good tire overall, great price.

As for the parada spec 2's, they're expensive, and I've heard so many bad stories about them.

paradas have ****ty wear, excellent performance.

best bang for the buck are the kumho 712, i had them before my yokos and they handled nice and were easy on the wallet.

I believe the 712 has been discontinued and replaced with the ASX.

I had 712 and I would grab a set of those if you can find them.

I found the 512 to have little grip overall, and I thought after a year they were so bad on traction it felt like driving on hard plastic.

512s suck. I currently am running on them and will never buy them again.

paradas are way better than 512s are, anyways I'm running 205/40/16 parada spec 2, paid $116 per tire, 512 were only like $5 less, and kumho 711 were about $2 less, kumho 712 were a little more expensive they are to be replaced by the spt not asx.

The ASX must be the replacement for the Ecsta MX then.
