Porsche Crest I went with the Japanese Dunlop!

Sumitomo is known as the Japanese Dunlop.

Front 275-40-17

Rear 315-35-17

I was considering BFG and other brands...but I did not think they were 3X's better. These tires are extremely reasonable. If I decide to keep the car, I will purchase another set to have on stand by.

I have taken these tires up only to about 140. They did just fine and their lateral stick is a lot better then I expected. A lot of bang for the buck.

Sumitomo may lack the status of more expensive brands...but with the drastic changes I've made with my 930, I obviously don't follow the crowd.

I always ran Dunlop....then Sumi's on the 930. I would have purchased Kumhos...but they did not offer 315's in the model I wanted.

With your color car...I might consider the RSR finish on Lindseys. Black would look cool too....but I think the RSR finish would do your car's color justice.
