in a word, weak. these are on my new 3.2 as oe and i am not thrilled. so, for all you veterans out there, what tires do you like? i have the 17" wheels and do not want to change them out. i imagine a good sticky tire is going to vastly improve the handling for this car...how about some input? tia tim

I think I still prefer the Goodyear F1s that were on my R32!

Does going with say the GoodYear Eagles make that much of a difference?

Went with Kumho Ecsta ASX all-seasons and the handling difference was night and day. Far more grip, improved response, at-limit handling more stable, etc. Also, much quieter. The P6 4seasons got a nasty out-of-balance-sounding defect by ~15K miles and it KILLED me when I drove the last 8K miles. Finally couldn't live with it anymore although I had at last 5K mi remaining tread and broke down and bought new tires.
And keep in mind these new tires are all seasons also. Imagine the change had I gone to summer tires like BFG KDs or something like that.
