I think I had S.Drives on my car at one point, but I don't remember. I have Star Spec Z1s on my car right now. Thanks for the update, equipraptor - one of the 949 Racing guys has 'em as his daily driver. He says it handles "ok."DZ101s are supposed to be crap compared to the Star Specs, according to Tire Rack. Try the Yokohama S. Drive if they have it in your size, assuming you want a good all-round daily commuter tire that isn't crap that can occasionally duke it out on an auto-X course. Not the grippiest tire out there, but it's a good compromise.
What's "too wide" for you then? 225?I find Miatas quite tossable on high-grip tires, so long as the tires aren't too wide. I also really appreciate the feel & feedback of the grippier tires, and on the street the braking distance is fantastic. But perhaps that's because I'm a bit of a hoon. If you find high grip tires, even skinny ones, harm the tossability for you, the S.drives are probably a good compromise.
I'm driving a PRHT right now. It's nice. It looks a bit gawky with the top up, but that can be solved easily And I can guarantee you that no matter how often traffic seems to stop on a freeway construction zone, you will look like a right berk if you try to put the top up at the exact second traffic starts moving again.Got my first car yesterday, and it's a 2.0 PRHT NC with a manual. Couldn't be happier! Feeling a bit stupid for considering other cars, although it's a bit too early to jump to conclusions, me thinks. Or is it
