I'd recommend either Potenzas, or Toyo T1R.
Either way, be sure to use the same brand and model of tyre at both ends otherwise differing sidewall stiffness can result in scary handling.
Yep! I'm holding off until I find the right set within budget.
I wanted RE003s again, because I had a good experience on my old 16s. But the bridgestone website is completely useless. They recently had a buy 3 get one free deal going, but the 215/40/17 was not covered and they didn't have a 235/40/17. I was going to go for the 245 for the back, but all up it was going to be $1100 for a full set. Considering I paid about $850 for my last set I wasn't very impressed. I can get a set of T1Rs for 900 without any discount and I can get a 235/40/17 for the rear.
I'm going to wait patiently as their new promo is "Black Friday deals" on specific tyres every day. I'm going to check every day, wait for the performance catagory to come 'round and see if the 215/40/17 as part of in the deal this time. There wasn't any stock anyway, so couldn't get my hands on them till next week even if I tried.
I also tried Hyperdrive, but I couldn't find a matching set via their website, even when they had AD08Rs on TradeMe in both sizes, their website didn't match.
I went 17" because I was told tyres were abundant, but I'm not finding that to be the case at all. God forbid I purchased 16 rims, judging by what everyone says, I would have been even more limited.
