I have BF Goodrich Radial T/A's in 225-60-R14. Came with the car with zero miles.

I'm impressed by them, haven't had to add air in 2 years! I was originally worried they might be a bit wide for the tarantula wheels but all is good.

I'm just curious what others are using, and if there's any recommendations for summer tires

Hankook RS3. Will injure you via severe grip.

Hankook Ventus Prime 2. 205/55 R16, 225/50 R16. Better that those Pirelli P6000 tyres that were completely dried out.

Hankook R-S3 @ 225/45R15

bang/buck/grip/life ratio unmatched.

Toyo R888s on the Club Sport.

Toyo Proxes 4 on the 941.

So far, no complaints about either.

I run my 931 few years on Pirelli P6 - 195/65/R15 all 4 wheels.
Now I have set of Pirelli P6000 205/50/R17 and 225/45/R17 - not tested on car yet Hope will be ok like on P6... I don't have money for something better yet.
