Default General tire Gmax AS-03

Thanks to Kc Civic recommending the General tire Gmax AS-03. Had 4 installed today on the Accord and it feels great to have a good tire. The car feels so much better in almost every situation.

Now that you have ultra high performance tires, you should be able to put even more car lengths on modified EVOs.

They are still all-seasons??? I wouldn't really consider these a "great" tire. Am I missing something?

They definitely aren't full blown summers, but it's the best you can get for all seasons from what I have read.

They are not the best all season high performance tire you can get.

Best in that category would be either the Dunlop SPsport 5100 or the Bridgestone potenza RE970.

I didn't really have a budget for tires other than I couldn't drop a grand on wheels. So I decided to stay stock and go with all seasons. From what I have read in terms of reviews this tire is the best rated. It does have its shortcomings however as i'm sure every tire does.

Just keep us informed every time you beat a fast car in the kills section with that wicked Accord of yours esp. now that you have super grippy rubbers.
