      Aveo Redux - Back to good - and it's good to be back

      Bastards cost me $400, stress, and more time than I care to devote to scumbags.

      Same rims, different tires.

      15" Rota Circuit 8 (ebay about $450-$500 new or used)

      http://www.wheeldude.com/catalog/index. ... 35_336_391

      had 205/50/15 Kumho Ecsta SPT - they are nice and quiet, you can do bootleggers turns all day long without making much noise.

      Now, 205/50/15 BFG G-Force Sport A/S - they do make some noise when pushed, little more than I care for, but not that loud. They do have better acceleration grip than the Kumhos, cornering about the same though the sidewalls appear a bit softer. Could be because I currently have 32psi and usually run 36 in the front.

      I love the way my tires perform, 205/40/R17 Cooper Zeon ZPT's. A little bit of road noise but they corner amazingly and overall ride comfort wasn't really sacrificed when swapped from 14's. I think I run like 46-48 pounds in mine though, I burn a little more fuel but It feels like my acceleration is a lot smoother and I can coast longer.

      Well it's hard to say, I think I've only put like 1700 miles on them since they've been on my aveo. I think I put like 800 miles on them last winter with my Jetta. I haven't noticed hardly any wear.
