Well through endless hours of searching I finally ordered some Nexen N3000 tires for my car. I would like to post some pics of the tires I was chosing from. Just a helpful tidbit for those who would like an excellent summer/VERY light all season tire that is relatively inexpensive. After all the research I have done I think that anyone of these would be a great chose depending on a couple minor differences or preferences. I couldn't find anywhere that the Nexen and Lexani were brothers but they sure do look similiar. Happy shopping.

The bottom two are Toyo, the middle Lexani, and top Hankook and Nexen.

Lexani is made by Nexen I believe. They're just re-badged tires. I've heard a lot of people are happy with the Nexen N3000's.

I have the nexen's... Good performance for the money, but they neglect to tell you that their sidewalls are about a size bigger than most. My 40 series 18's are incredibly tall.

I have Infusion ZRI's I say there good in wet and dry traction. I have had some feeling of slipping in the rear at times at high speeds and quick accelerations.

There good tires and tread life has been above average and I run them constantly.

But I cant wait for my G-Force.

I got a set of Bridgestone Potenza 950s off an ebay store for a little over 300 shipped to my house. I love them so far, smooth and quiet at highway speeds and they've been able to grip the turns very nicely.
