Absolutely do not get the nexxen n3000 whatever you do and don't ask me how I know, it's to embarrassing. I'm glad they haven't even been considered. They blow goats by the herd.

Have had NT-01 and RS2.

Don't get the NT-01. They need to be warm to work. If the heat falls off and you take a turn, you'll suddenly find yourself with far less grip.

After that experience, i'll stick with street tires on the street.

None of you bitches have anything on my new tires... 195/50/15 Falken ZE-912's. My last set were 205's, but I wanted the 195's since I felt the 205's were too wide (lol) for my puny 6.5'' wheels. Many the 195's will help me pick up some tossability. I was going to do the RE11's, but I felt the price was too high, and the tread life too short for what is still a daily driven car that sees 30k miles a year or more. Can't afford 2 or 3 sets of those a year at nearly $500 a set. The 912's a damn good all seasons though. Not relevant to this thread though, I think.

Where have you found the best price?

Costco has them for the same price as tire rack and then you have to add $15 per tire for mounting
