I was never impressed with those (RWD)
ok for daily driving, but for dex, back end was all over the place

Anyone have any other suggestions besides Chippy's? Used to go to John's but finding a good pair is becoming harder everytime as the boys are playing hide and seek.

What size you got the potenzas in? I got a pair of turanza er50s at chippy's but they're more a comfort tyre than a performance summer tyre so even though the treadwear is 140 I don't find they had too much grip. Could just be a mental thing though. I gonna have to go back to chippy's before solodex 3 to see what I can find.

I switched from the turanzas back to the sumitomos for the last two runs. But now one is completely smooth so I don't think I can use that again.

How much John's charge for those tyres? From my last experience going there I will never be back. Not helpful at all and they don't know wtf they have. I guess the problem is just my tyre size 205/45R16 and 205/50R15 they didn't have any good tyres in those sizes at johns.
