    Just dropped my car off to get the Vortech SQ trim mongoose kit on...so considering i only have Kumho Ecsta MX street tires on there now i think i need to upgrade to a radial...This usually ends up 50/50 but i just wanted to see where the majority lies...keep in mind this car is my daily driver, i never take it to the track and i am not looking to spend money on tires every year, but i do want something that hooks decent:
