    Hello to all,

    Just wondering what make/model tires people are running on their BH5 Legacies. I have the 17" wheels so looking at 215/45-17.

    Thanks.

    I've been running Mirage MR-182 tires. Bought them new last summer and have absolutely no complaints what so ever. They are quiet, sticky, great in the rain, and wearing evenly. Sure, they're made in China, but the price is right: they were under $300 for all 4. I shit you not.

    So I ended up going with the Continental Contiextreme DWS06. Expensive, but very nice so far.

    Had the original Conti DWS. These tires were ok though not the best. I've heard that the dws06 have stronger sidewalls.
