I have also been in the tire decision area for a while. I don't have deep pockets but want a excellent summer tire. I previously had the A-520's which we, ok. As you probably know, they have been replaced by the Parada's which have a much higher tread were rating & are suppose to perform better to :o) So being a Yokohama fan, I was going to get them :o)
Then a few weeks ago I went in to the local performance shop to talk about tires & the salesman claims the Toyo Proxes T1s is a much much much better tire then the Parada. A 215-40-17 is $127 (mounted & everything) which is $10 more per tire then the PArada's. He also claims the AVS-Sports are a better tire but for around $60 more per tire, it's not worth it.
Toyo's, here I come >:o)
