I have searched around and some people have replied with answers close to what I am looking for. Work is hammering me right now so I dont have as much time as I would like to peruse the forums :(

This is my first SAV, so I am kind of new to the rubber on these guys. I ran Hankook V12's on all my cars in the past (horrible tread wear, but amazingly sticky btw)

I have 19inch rims, currently running michelon 275/45 latitude tour HP in the back, and Conti 275/45 4x4 M+S 108's in the front.

I live in FL and dont really have a need for AS or M+S.....

I have a need for:

a summer tire with wet performance

good tread life

priced on the lower side??

ability to have a little spirited driving

Stable (no tramlining) at highway speeds 100ish mph

dont really care about sound

Seems there are a lot of options and opinions, a lot of what people are listing are all seasons, and are in the upper echelon of pricing.

Considered so far

Michelin Latitude Sports

Toyo Proxes S/T

P-Zero Rossos

Vredestein Ultra Sessantas

Any people running summer specific tires that cost around $200ish, any advantage to staggering a CTT, any weird characteristics going to a wider or possibly a little thinner tire?????

Some people will say only go with the Porsche "N" spec tires. I'm not one of them. The "N" spec does mean that Porsche tested the tires for the car but doesn't mean they are the only tires. One thing you DO need to watch for, is that the tires are XL rated (for weight), the Pig is heavy.

Every tire you listed has what i would consider short thread life.

with the weight of the car you are looking at a much higher wear limits. I currently have the Kuhmo STX tires....noisy, but good grip dry or wet. they are almost to the wear bars and i have about 30k on the tires.

I'd try to quantify the amount of miles you want from a tire first, then look for something that meets those.

I have the Michelin Latitudes (295/35-21) on 21" BBS wheel and love the tire, handling, wet traction, braking...but the $550 price each and short tread life is a killer. Stay away from 21", 20" & 22" tires are cheaper and more choices. With that said, on the OEM 20" wheels I also have a set of Hankook AS RH07's (275/40-20) which have pretty good tread wear and for the price are a great all around tire, they are considered an all season so pretty good in the rain, about $215 per tire.
