Hey, I wanted to know which tire you would recommend out of these 2. I run a staggered setup, and these will be just for my rear 2 tires. The size is 265/30/19.

I hear that the:
----The GS-D3 treadware is rated better than the Asymmetric, (280 vs 240)
----The GS-D3 is an older tire than the assymetric,
----The GS-D3 are directional (which actually doesn't allow me to rotate them),
----They apparently have more road noise especially when the miles increase than the Asymmetric
----Hydroplaning is better on the GS-D3 but maybe at the expense of dry traction
----GS-D3 was designed to be for rain and dry, and the asymetric more for dry (i believe)
----Treadpattern looks nicer on the GS-D3


I really just can't decide.... Can you help me out on this?
If the prices were basically the same, which one would you recommend for my situation?

Thanks,

Hiral

That was one of my choices too. I looked into these on Tire Rack because they have a good review section and you can filter it by car manufacturer.

GS-D3's bend the laws of physics to allow you to take corners at obscene speeds... NUFF SAID!
