Another tire thread..

I've put some money into the cressida to try and get it autox worthy and I have a set of 16" wheels that I want to buy some tires for.

I'm looking for a set of summer tires that can be used for autox, primarily used for summer driving but work well at autox.

I'm looking for a cheap option as the cressida does not need to ride on a bed of diamonds. Less than $100 per tire I would think would be decent.

Any ideas as to what tire to get? I have winter wheels and tires for the car (more wheels for the cressida than my IS actually ) so I can dedicate a set to summer.

Stock tire size for the cressida is
195/65/15x6" +50

The wheel is a 16x7.5" off of a GS300 - with an offset of +38 I think..

So I would be looking for a 205/55/16 approximately to keep the speedometer consistent.

It looks like the cheapest reasonable tires in that size (205/55-16) on tirerack are Hankook Ventus V12 evo K110. I know they do pretty well in reviews and at $86 each just for autox they can't be too bad?
