i had kuhmo's on my 17's, and although they performed well, i got alot of bubbles in them, and yes i kept them inflated properly, i dono if all tires do that but they were my first set. i had nitto on them after that and they slipped more than the kuhmo (their more for drifting) but kept up better i thaught, now i have toyo and im pretty happy, must say tho i thaught the kuhmo performed better but the side walls also scraped my wells more than the toyo and nitto did b/c of the straight side walls

azenis are the **** on dry pavement, but not so hot in the rain, and death in the snow, i got ES100's on my si rims, and i love them, 195/50/15, no tire noise, no shakiness, and they grip like no tomorrow, i cant even chirp tire anymore, definitely a plus

im riding si wheels with 195/50, with a 2.75" in the front and a 2.5" in the back, no rubbing at all, you might even be able to cut something bigger like a 205/50/15 if you wanted only a 2" drop, but anything more would probably rub
