It sorely depends on the exact tyre type, I'm afraid.

I mean, Toyo are a good tyre company so you can't go too wrong with them anyway, but some of their tyres (T1R, with far too much sidewall compliance at standard pressure, springs to mind) have been known to have issues.

There can also be issues to be had with availability, so it's a matter of seeing which tyre is available which is relatively new, rather than buying a tyre which has sat in storage for over a year...

Is this a daily driver or more for performace/track driving? Toyo has a few good offers, as well as bridgestone and continental.

I would honestly consider the Continental extreme contact DW. They are very affordable now days, have great wear for an extreme performance tire, and they have have top of their class wet performance. So for a daily, they are fantastic tires, i run these on my evo.

Sure there are better handling tires, but they arent that much better, and cost quite a bit more. And be serious here, how often are you pushing the limits on the street?
