I bet u can get yoko's es100's pretty cheap
and the plsu side is that the are ZR rated

the minus side is finding your size since they are very perforamnce like oriented

True true, but my problem is that i barely drive 8,000 mi/ yr and i dont drive aggressively at all, so i dont see the point in buying great great tires for 600 - 800$ a set. blah...

if you can find toyo 800s in that size they are the shit. they are rated T, but they last longer than anything (highest treadwear rating in the world). just send a pm to whoever opened the topic about tires that's pinned. after 20k on our audi, you still cant tell they have been used.

Quite a few people have recommended the kumho ecsta 711 tire as well as the ecsta KH11.

A few others recommended the nankang NS-1

Can somebody tell me from experience how these tires are compared to some bigger brands?

I want a nice quiet ride (which i hear the ecsta 711 offers) but i also want some stability and assurance that the tire is safe.

Thanks!
