For ST (ie intake, lowering springs, header, cat back stuff)? Bridgestone RE-11's or Dunlop Direzza Z1 Star Specs.

Falken Azenis RT615 or RT615K's will also work well, as will Kumho Ecsta XS. Both are much cheaper than the RE-11 and Direzza's.

Just remember you cant go any wider than a 225 tire in ST. So if you're keeping the stock wheels a 225/50R16 is your best bet.



Paying someone to install parts and bragging about it being fast, is like watching someone bang your wife and being proud to raise their kids.

They're illegal in ST class because their tread-wear is too low. I believe it has to be above 160 (or 180). I know for a fact those tires are not allowed in ST.
