Got some new rubber today :D

Sumitomo HRZ II in 225/45/17's

Let me just say, WOW these things are amazingly grippy :eek: before I could chirp in the 1>2 shift and 2>3 shift, but I can barely hear a squeak for the 1>2 shift ):

The ride is noticeably smoother and quieter too :eek: or maybe because I dont have bald tires anymore :gap:

overall 7/10, but 9/10 for the tires, -2 points for the price at sears, damn mom thinking the internet is the devil -.-


Well, i'm happy :D i just need a new clutch since mines is being abused each time i try to teach someone how to drive standard >:|

Congrats. New rubber usually makes driving alot more fun, since most people have balding, jacked up ones right before the switch. I remember when I first got the Faulken GRB's, my car could fly around turns with extreme confidence....very grippy! Almost like I got a new set of BALLZ...LoL!

Well there are many, just depends how much you wanna spend, and if you want to spend 600 bucks on tires that won't last that long.

Try the Falken ZIEX 512'S. I liked how they handled on dry roads and they had pretty good grip in the rain. If you don't mind spending a little more the GRB 451's are supposed to be better (Clint and a lot of other Celica owners have these).

I check at Sears yesterday because my GF's car needed a new tire...so I asked about the GRB's They quoted me 202...or something like that.... Ouch!


talk to Clint or Mark, they probably are able to hook it up a little better than sears.

Falken GR-Betas are your best bet for dry and wet weather performance. The ZIEX ZE-512s are good too if you're on a budget, but the GR-Beta is a much better tire. The price diff is actually pretty minimal.

I can let you know how much they are when I let you know how much the TEINs are later today... just lemme know what size you need. :)
