Hi-
I am still tire shopping and someone recommended BF goodrich Euro TA's. Are these tires any good for gripping in the turns? Are they worth the 80 bucks a pop? Also no one makes the dunlop m40's anymore...any other ideas?
Thanks-Travis 77z

BF Goodrich Euro TA's ...no no no no no!!!

The only good BFG IMO is the Comp TA ZR. The only good thing about the Euro TA is their longevity. They do not handle. If you look at their rating, they are listed as a performance look tire. I recomend that you steer away from the EURO TA. Do you get the point that I think they are a POS!!!

It is very unfortunate that the D40M2 is NLA. I have them on my turbo 240Z. They are great! However, try the Yokohama A509. They suck in the rain but they grip like mad when it's dry out. And, they last well, and they aren't that expensive. We'll talk more about tires later...

Re: BFG Euro TA's and A509

In response to the suggestion to run A509s I have to agree it's a great tire for a measly $72. The wear rating is 160 so it will definitely wear faster than the Euro TA but it will also outperform it. The only complaint I have about the tire is that the sidewall flex is a little excessive. Also, I have autocrossed and streeted mine for about six months and they are wearing great.

I am running a great set of tires on the rear, Firehawk SH-30, very cool tire, aggressive tread, stiff sidewall, it curves inward, not out. I think I paid something like, $180 for the two, I have some type of Pirrelli on the front, not sure what model it is, it resembles an aqua tread, by looking at the tread pattern...I have been wanting to put a set of SH-30's on the front, to be uniform with the rear, and to really make my car stick. Just my 0.02, bye!

This summer I put on a set [all around] of Firestone FIREHAWK 235 60 16 raised white letter. The size and look is great on my Turbine
mags.
I have no complaints and really like the fit of the diameter and width to the wheel well. The OD matched the radius of the fender perfectly.
