    Well ask yourself what are you looking for as in will you be driving the car in the rain, snow or just the sunny days. If you are talking rain the P Zero is a great tire.

    If you are talking sunny days only then you have more options however if you plan to drag race you also need to be careful on what you pick.

    The Nittor NT555 or NT555R is a great tire but the sidewall is not as stiff at the P Zero.

    I put a set of Michelin Pilot Sport 295/35-20 on mine. Smooth, quiet stick like glue in a straight line and corners. No clearance issues no bulging side walls. Pleased doesn't describe the difference over the p-zeros.

    Living in BC, we get rain.. the P-Zeros have a life of 12,000 to 18,000 which is hilarious, but soft compound will be this way.

    I'm thinking of grabbing a couple 20 x 10 replicas for the back and then bumping to 315's. I can add 305's on the stock 9.5 wheels. I'll need to add in 22mm spacers as well if I go to 315's. That extra footprint makes me smile.

    Issue now is.. Mickey's and Nitto's are not exactly rain compliant. I live in Central BC so we don't get rain like the coast does, but still.

    Any suggestions?

    No issues at all. The handling is amazing.

    How does the tread wear on these ? I have had other cars (German Made) that had tires that didn't wear long at all - maybe 20,000 miles before I had to replace them - I really don't want to do that again for the HC-

    Since the post on this any other suggestions on tires to use?

    Thank you-

    The Tire Dealer where I got the tires suggested that that's all the wear I would get from the tires. I have 2,000 miles on them with no noticeable wear but I am a performance driver not a maniac and maintain the air pressure. The ride and handling are still number 1 in my mind.
