    browsing around for a new brake setup and there are lots of choices and opinions. anything that stands out to you fellow pnwers? looking for a little better than stock on my dd 325. I drive a twisty road everyday to work and seem to *almost* be late a lot ( or maybe its more fun to pretend I am haha).

        Dunlop DZ101. $325 out the door. Super grippy. Fuck Toyo, the only place that sells Toyo is Les Schwab and I will never go back there.

            I buy through a tire distributor, but I think tire rack sells them for close to that.

              Good question. And what size? $325 doesn't get you shit. Maybe some Nankangs

                    That's pretty close to what I paid. Figure another $60 to mount/balance.

                      Im sticking with the euroweaves for right right now.

                      I'm just torn between the 205/50 and 205/55.

                      Now I just wonder if the Dunlops are better than the Yokos...so many damn options lol

                        It's a WRX that actually looks good ;) I always loved this front end:

                          I think I am.
                          I'm still mulling over the idea of having car payments...

                            I've got BF Goodrich G-Force's and could not be more impressed. 215/45/17s or 215/40/17, I forget which. Amazing tires and under $500 for a set.
