New rims, now need tires

Alright I know I saw a great thread about different tires people were using but I just cant find it. I ordered up some Rota Boost rims, black with the small red strip on the lip. I want some good tires to go with my new rims. I need a middle ground for sticky/mileage. I like huging the corners ocasionally but also dont want to be ordering another set of tires in 6 months. Whats your sugestions? Looking for 235/40/17

I recommend you go for 225/45/17 if you can fit them. 40 series tires suck ass for daily driving. What width are the wheels can you fit tires that wide? Do you want summer tires or all seasons? All seasons aren't grippy so I'm assuming you want summer tires. Look into 225/45/17 General Exclaim UHP's great tire great price, they compete with the big dog BF goodrichs for like almost a 1/3 the price. Check em out.

The rim is a 17x7.5 so I want to run a even wider tire. 235/45/17 is what I am going for. Oh and I live in Northern California so I dont have any issues with snow/ice conditions. It will start raining here soon though.

General Exclaim UHPs are great i agree. Affordable but not cheap on quality.
