SERIOUSLY!? i have the neo gens and i get wheel hop like a bitch!, i'm really not too fond of em but yet again these are my first performance tires so i have nothing to compare them to. My friend did have yokahamas, said they were great but didnt last long at all (then again he drives an evo so they'll probably last longer on our vics..)

Re: What Brand Tires???

If you are stuck with those brands I would go with the TOYO or the Yokohama.

But I am still going to push the NITTO

Word. My car hopped very slightly even with brand new tires. But ever since I installed those mounts, I havent had any issues with wheel hop.

Re: What Brand Tires???

I have the Kumho Ecsta ASX 205-40-16, "Ultra high performance all-seasons". Meh they are ok, nothing too special, but they were a decent price. They stop nice, but I don't trust them around corners as much.

never heard of motor mount bushings, and as for the ingalls stiffy, i heard of a lot of problems with it if you have a neuspeed strut tower bar. I have the dc sports strut bar so idk if the ingalls would be compatible with that

Re: What Brand Tires???

Use Goodyears. Go to walmart, buy tires with a 80,000 mile warrenty (230.00 all 4), trade them in with no questions ask at 40,000.
