give dhp a pm



i highly highly recommand Contiental DWS


definitely worth the extra $100-200 depending on the size you run

i have the asx right now and i absolutely cant wait till they self destroy or sth, horrible in the rain, and i have zero traction till 4th gear



or go with general UHP if you want it to be the cheapest while best bang for the buck

I previously had the exact same tires (Ecsta ASX) and recently replaced them with four Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 AS+.

The new Michelins may have been more expensive, but they're better in every way: dry traction is VASTLY improved, wet traction is better, road noise is decreased, and the treadwear rating is superior.

Would never consider going back to a cheaper alternative, personally.

+1 for DWS.
I'll be ordering a set myself from tire rack
Absurdly cheap from there, even after the duties, taxes, and shipping. Still manages to be cheaper than a trip to Discount Tire in Bellingham.

Has anyone actually used the DWS? I've searched for reviews on Tirerack and they have been mixed, usually on opposite ends of the spectrum. They have scored pretty well on the TR track tests.
