    Getting new wheels. Need tires which ones?

    Ordered the Rays 57DRs in gunmetal blue and i need some tires. I want an all-summer high perf tire.
    I like the stock tires but want to try something new.
    Thoughts and recommendations?

    I was reading this article this morning from last year. I think tires can be so subjective. SixSpeedTurbo put it very nicely though. If I put an All-season tire on an ST, it's like a world-class runner running in Converse Allstars.
    I think I'm leaning towards the Bridgestone Potenzas S-04. Came in second to the Super Sports, but priced a little lower. ($155-$165)

    Why would you NOT get the Pilot Super Sports? You are a big baller.

    Had those and konig unknowns on my previous focus and loved them, the 18s with those rode better than the stock 16s and Pirelli pzeros haha very nice on dry, a little squirmy in the wet.
