Perrelli's are THE best, and because of this they arn't cheap! But they will improve your grip in both handling and accelleration, if you have a VR-4, its the way to go!

Re: best 3000GT tire???

i may be new but i do kno perrelli's are not the way to go. after my dad bought an evo 7 last year hes replaced the tires twice, first were perrelli lasted 4 months before the first one blew. I suggest toyo , we installed them on ours and they are definatly worth the money we payed for them. not to say that perrelli might not work for you but in my experiance toyo is the best . still not cheap tho.

Toyo's are cheep compaired to their competition, and one mean looking tread to boot.
Personally Im going with dayton tires, they arent the best, but they are cheep, around 170 a tire, are fairly soft, and have a rubber lip to protect the rim.

I put a set of Yokohama AVID H4's on my SL last year. I have been very pleased. They still look like new and perform very well. They aren't too good in snow, but then what performance tire is? They aren't cheap either, probably middle of the road, but they seem like a good tire for the money.

I ended up buying yokos and these babies are sweet, no more burnouts and great traction.
