What kinda tires do you have on your Z? I need to buy some new ones for my 17" rims but I am not sure which ones to get. I have a budget of $300 a tire if needed. I usually just get Toyo Proxes SA1 or somthing like that which run $130 a tire. Any suggestions?

Size suggestion: 215/35R17 or wider.  205s fit, but don't look good.

I like my Nitto Neo-Gen's 205/40R17, but if you get those and put 'er in the show this year I'll have to kick you. ;)  But seriously, they're pretty sticky both wet and dry.

Fuzion ZRi's if your ready to snap axles and break differentials like I do, those are the best gripping tires I've ever seen. They usually go for about $90 a tire or less, but also depends on the size.  I got mine when they first came out and I got a great deal on thier first releases, $210 for 4 P205/50R16's

my tires were fairly cheap.  they are kind of hard though and don't grip as well as i'd like...they do have a 500 treadwear rating though.  they've lasted me a LONG time now (over 2 years..that's a long time the way i drive, my nankang HR-II's lasted me 3 months at most).
more weight reduction than a gastrointestinal bypass patient.  and a few go fast goodies too.
