Suggestion on these two brand tires on my stock 17” rim 215/45/17 or any recommendation is helpful. Looking at tread life and handling.

Yoko AVS ES100

Goodyear Eagle F1 GS-D3

Trying to stay under the $140.00 each tire budget. Thanks

Michelin Pilot Sports are incredible and look very aggressive

Given the above two tires, I will vote for Yoko AVS ES100

Personally, I love my Dunlop SP9000. It's perfect to use in CA. My set has 41000 miles on it and still has a lot of meat :)

The wear and performance characteristics on the F1 gsd3 will be probably be similar to that of the Michelin Pilot Sports PS2. I beleive there is a special on Tire RAck for the 225/45/17 for like $142 per tire (slightly more than your budget). Good deal if you ask me.

Based on my experience with the ES100 they handle well in its initial life, but one you put more miles, the handling suffers.

Does she have low profile tires? Mine has been wonderful. Low Pros are only "supposed" to last 20K miles (as the window sticker on my car indicated when I bought it)
