Arrow Let's get the answers going! Finding the BEST quality tires

Hey everyone,

I've been a member of the forums here for a couple years, currently own an IS myself, soon looking to purchase an IS-F. I'd like to begin educating myself a bit on different components and instead of googling, thought where else to ask than the car hobbyists themselves here.

There's always discussion about tires and wheels, wheels and tires etc. But my question is directed more towards rubber.

**When shopping for tires, what does one look for? How does one understand quality of tires? Is it simply by brand, reputation, recommendation, how do I know what tire I'm purchasing is in the stock (dealer) category, what is mid-grade quality and what is high-quality.

Thanks!

Thank you, that's what i would end up doing in the end, just thought there were certain brands/tires that people recommended the most.

Nice to meet you, I'm from Maryland too!

Another question then, on an 18x8, what would be some recommendations for tires, not to spend more than ~$150 per tire?
