I just had 4 GoodYear Eagle ResponsEdge 215/50/17 put on the stock 17" rims on my 2003 6s, replacing the OEM tires.

Was looking at the Falken 512s, Toyo, and one place had suggested the Yokohama AS430 also. After looking at reviews, and talking to a few local tire dealers, I decided on the Goodyears. I was looking for a tire to replace the old OEMs which are getting bad, and for something that hopefully handles better in snow/slush then the OEMs. With the OEMs, I could barely get in my drive way the first winter after I got the car when there was just a inch of snow on it.

Jeez, what's with you guys. You hear me putting anything down about whatever you've got goin? When this thread was started, I didn't realize it was a setup to be shut down. All I did was answer the question, "What Tire Brand You Have?" Thanks for the ambush - later .

Didn't mean to make you feel ambushed... It's just that they really do suck, they are always slipping... But I guess they must be working for you since you are very pleased...

There was no "feel" about it, I was ambushed.

My experience so far is that they stick one hell of alot better than the OEM tires. There's alot to take into concideration with tire response and it's not just only the tires. The entire suspension and drivers abilities come into play as well. I've tested these tires out in extreme cornering on mountain roads and so forth, and for my needs they're a great improvement over the OEM tires. What was interesting is I did a search on the forum and couldn't find anything by any members about these tires, but that's not the boards fault. For all I know, Dunlop may have made some changes since you guys last had yours installed. Anyway, I'm not lying to anyone and really am impressed with the ride, handling, and quietness of the tires. With that said, I'm movin' on to another thread. Have a good one.
