What tires do you want?

As many enthusiasts are particular about the tires they put on their car, what model tire would you like to see as standard from the factory? I'm hoping summer tires will at least be an option! I'd like to see something like Star Specs, or similar. Would suck if they put garbage rubber on there, adding $600+ to the price you pay bc your first stop is the tire shop.

(Subaru did this with the WRX - the RE92's were horrible and resulted in the abs going off rather often, along with poor cornering grip. Just about anything was better than those.)

I'm guessing whatever tire you see on the TC is what will probably come with the car. Can't expect much from a cost effective price point as well as trying to appeal to the "do it your self" crowd. Decent rims would be nice though.

I think the STI's run Dunlop sp sport 600s or close to it, so that might be in an option pack on the BRZ side since subaru already has the hookup, thus maybe scion will get it?

why waste your time? the star specs are at least as grippy and alot cheaper. as far as performance street tires, if they have the star spec in the size you want i dont know why you would want something else...unless you are worried about best times in rain or something.

I hope they put something decent on the car; some RE010's would do.

Going to use up all the trend of the stock tires... :p

But Bridgestone or Falken. :> Or... Yokohama even... or Toyotires! I have no big preference.. unless someone wants to make me sway towards a brand. haha
