Falken Ziex 512's...18in.
I'm SOOO mad they quite making them because I need two new ones and don't want to buy all new tires yet...luckily winter is here!!
Winter tires on stock rims soon!!

Just don't go putting fugly hubcaps on them.
I like the look of gloss steelies with chromed lugs.

The car feels a ton better now (of course that could just be the fact that my tires have tread again...). Both ride quality and handling/responsiveness are increased. I haven't driven in wet or snow yet, though. The tread pattern looks like it should provide much better wet traction than my old tires.
Also, this is the first time I've ever run directional tires on any of my cars. Anything I should do differently (aside from not rotating them so they're backward...)?
With the new ones, they stick like glue and the trunk goes all over the place. Fun...
Oh and the Falken's have VERY good traction IMO and I've never had a problem in the water. As for the snow I've only drove them once in the snow but when I did I tried everything I could to get them to break loose to no avail. Granted it was rather slushy conditions...I was still impressed. You shouldn't have to do anything other than make sure you don't put them on backwards like you said!!
