Default Best Low Profile Tires

Looking for the best low profile street performance tire. Stock rims. Price dosent matter. What do you guys recommend? Also if i order online how much do tire places charge to put tires on rims? I have a good suspension set up so i want good tires to be able to handle turns at a high velocity.

Never bought new tires before so someone help me out please

go to www.tirerack.com or www.discounttiredirect.com look for your size. read the reviews and specs. everyone will want you to buy the tires they are currently running.

Reviews dont mean anything. 99% of people that buy something never write a review. also people get paid to write phony reviews for companies. just needed an honest answer from a fellow SL`er

iv noticed people put negative reviews more often cuz their just mad.
you be surpised how much people go out of their way for some payback.

i just look at the ratings on them even though their overrated. but better then the reviews.

for the "best" tires u need to get summer tires. but that just means their crap in the wet. look in to the low 200 thread ratings. also cant go wrong with michelins.

thanks! but again im looking for a really low profile which really cant be rated, or read about in a review. i already read some threads about tires.

it f#kin ____es me off when everyones like "use the search tool" when i did and didnt quite find what i was looking for.

Dunlop Direzza Z1 Star Specs are by far an awesome tire! Just read the car and driver review along with all the people who SCCA with them. Best street tire that compares in traction to some race tires. Low treadwear though but it comes with the territory.
