Arrow Tire Recommendations Please

After measuring my tire tread depth my old tire set up for street duty is at 3/32 and I will be replacing front and tires. Current wheel sizes are 18X9.5 +22 front and 18X10.5 +12 rear widths and offsets are more of a flush set up. Im looking for recommendations on tire brand model and/or sizes? Input? I would like a stickier tire with good dry traction. 255/40/18 or 265/40/18 front and 285/40/18 or 305/35/18 is what Im considering?

I've been very pleased with the Firestone Firehawk Indy 500.

I love my Michelin PS4’s. But you can probably find a recommendation for any tire you want on here. I suggest going to the Tirerack website, shop by tire size and read the reviews and tests. This site is very comprehensive. You can slice and dice the recommendations any way you want. You can even filter the reviews from 370z owners. Nice thing is that the tires today are good enough that it’s hard to screw it up. Just set your priorities and let ‘er rip.

I have to second this.

Had nt555 for a while and switched to these and they are great.

Dry and wet you would be more than fine.

Ill second this. I have just over 1000 miles on mine now. No issues. Maybe not quite as sticky as the stock Potenzas or the PS4s of course, but you cant beat 4 tires for $800. Mounted and balanced. Oh, and road hazard from Tire Rack. Only driven once in heavy rain and had no issues, but YMMV.

All in all a great value for a daily driver. Definitely not made for tracking.

Id buy another set no questions asked as long as they hold the price.

I would have been rolling around on a set of Indy 500s but they burned down in the trailer on the way to me lol Currently waiting on my new set to arrive!

Get yourself some Yokohama Advan A052's if you're looking for sticky.

Thanks for all your subjections. After seeing all the Ford Explorers flipping because of the Firestone/Bridgestone tires I will never purchase Firestone/Bridgestone tires ever no pun intended to those that run them. Out of the selections here I have tried the Michelin Pilot SuperSport tires before they were excellent tires. I decided to try the Yokohama tires this time around as I read the Yokohama Advan A052s have superior dry traction and even do great in wet conditions as well. As these tires will be used for street duty only Im going to try the 265/40/18 front and 285/40/18 rear Yokohama Advan A052s from Discount Tire Direct and I have a place to get the hook up on mounting and balancing.

Default You might try Hankook Tires

I've been using Hankook Ventus V12 Evo2 tires for 3+ years, street duty. I have been happy with them. Just my view. I'll be back for more when I wear them out.

I've heard great things about that tire vis a vis the price. Definitely worth a look.

A052s are a bit overkill for the street, no? Just doesn't make sense for a purely street driven car.
