hi all
i have a skyline gtr 33
hevely modified and 6 pot brembo breaks wheels 225/40/17" front and back

my main problem is tires.. i cant get the performance out of he ones i keep getting.. ive been looking at a few and if anyone can suggest wich of them is best for my use.
mainly i need a set for street driving and a set for track use.
on the road im very heavy footed.. well i like to drive freely..
as i am often on the autobahn i get up to 240km/h average.
so what im looking for is two sets of tires. one that is a summer set and can be used also in the wet and a wet weather tire and is both cases need to stick like glue in the wet and dry(ive been recomended to get tires with 8mm tred depth).
these are what ive looked at

1 Proxes T1-R Toyo
2 Eagle F1 GS-D3 Goodyear's
3 Dunlop SP Sport Maxx
4 General Tire Exclaim UHP
5 Pilot Exalto PE2 - Michelin
6 Michelin Pilot Sports
1 BFGoodrich g-Force T/A KDW-2
2 Toyo Proxes T1-S
3 Yokohama - PARADA Spec-2
4 Yokohama ADVAN A048
5 Yokohama ADVAN Neova AD07
6 Potenza RE-01R

as for track well as to be expected i drive hard.. generlay pushing the limits but i also have to drive home with those tires so they have to be street legal.


if anyone has tested these can you recommend which i best for heavy wet weather, summer tire and a set for track use, so basicly im after 3 sets.

R compound tyres for grip and just street legal
