Default tire suggestions

It is definately time for new tires.

1. I have something in 3 out of 4 of my tires and all in so sidewall so i cannot patch
2. They are worn pretty badly and super bald
3. I can only get a 60ft time of 2.353

So yes, it is time. I know every one will say m/t, bfg, and nitto, however, I'm not sure if these tires are for me.
My car is a daily driver and Im a college student. I want something that will last a little while but still a good street tire, and I could possibly buy 4 street tires and 2 m/t, but what do you think would work best for me?

If you're not going to race much, check into a set of toyo proxies. Great tires.

I have BFG Radial T/A's in the rear and Kuhmo's in the front for my skinnies. I dont have any problems with them. With your setup, u dont need drag radials quite yet.

Right now I'm running Bridgestone G009's as a "winter" tire. Really good dry traction, and exceptional in rain/snow. They're listed as a high performance all season. In dry conditions they don't break traction very easily, and in wet they stick to the road pretty good.
