Thanks for the responses.

I don't think I will go with the toyo mainly as the reinforced ones seem to be hard to find, plus they will probably wear out faster than I'd prefer.

What I am really want to know is which of the said tires will yield the longest treadlife out of these tires as I simply CAN'T wear out another set at this rate. With that said I think I will go with the g-force or KDW as they look as if they will last a while, plus the g-force are cheap for me as I don't need 225's (still na, and thats for a while).

Oh and I am running icehawk's alignment.

Well I think I have found what I need, and it is completely out of the blue. The Falken zeix ze-912 are still UHP tires, and are ok for grip and that good stuff, but mainly they come with a 40,000 mile warranty! So ya, as I have virtually no money these fit the bill nicely, plus they are still a relatively performance based tire.

In the grip vs cash fight, cash has won .

Aww ****. I've just been reading some more reviews of the 912 and people are saying that they suck massive *********. Can anyone verify this? Damn I thought I was really on to something.

My brother has those on his 88 N/A RX-7. He likes em, but I wasn't too impressed.

I have the Toyo T1R's. I have the 195/55/14, which is too ******* small. Overall though they are a very nice tire. They are great in rain, and even in my small size they are pretty sticky.
