What tires are you running for street use. 2007 with stock wheels.

I think bang for the buck you'll have to take a look at the Toyo R888's. You should be able to get them in stock sizes and they perform about the same on the street (maybe a little softer). However, you'll get much more wear outta them.

Good Luck.

I'm running Dunlop Star Spec Z1 Direzzas and very happy with them. 205/50/16 and 235/45/17. I have the sport pack wheels.

I stopped buying the stock OEM tires, too expensive. I did a lot of research and talked with many other Lotus Elise / Exige owners- and came up with an excellent solution- Falken Azenis Tires I am on my second set and I couldn't be happier! They last a little longer than the OEM tire and deliver exactly the same driver experience as the stock. Only real difference is the cost. I save about $80.00 per tire. Highly recommend!

Cornfed - by stock wheels do you mean the non-LSS ones?

I recently bought a set of the LSS wheels and replaced my stock wheels. They came with the OEM Yoko Advan A048s but mine are almost done. Probably going to get one more track day out of them and then replace with the Toyo R888s as another poster suggested.

I use Toyo R888 for street and track days that I drive to. I also have Hoosier R6 for when I trailer the car.
