STU Tire Question

Postby vincere » Wed Jan 21, 2009 11:33 am

What are the top tires currently used in STU? Has anyone had any experience with the Kumho Ecsta XS? I'm looking for something for my S4 in a 245 40 17.

XS is still an unknown, but I've heard good input about it.

Top tires from '08 were

Yokohama Advan Neova AD07
Bridgestone Potenza RE-01R
Dunlop Direzza Z1 Star Spec

There are a lot of new tires out for '09 that could shake things up.

However, unless you're thinking you are going to compete nationally... you should just get what fits your budget and is decent. Kumho XS sounds like a great choice.

I can give you feed back on the 1st & 3rd tires on my list if you want (just email me), however the first 2 are being replaced w/ new models for '09 including a new offering from Hankook & Nitto.

A good place to get some opinions specific to your request is here :
