The Toyo Proxes T1 has a treadwear rating of well over 200....but is a prime choice street/track tire.

The Prada is considered a step up from the A520's.

You should try a drive with the Prada. Very agressive tread design and massive water channels.

>I wouldn't get the Parada's. The reason the tread rating is so high is cause the rubber is so hard, this means that the grip of the tire will be terrible, but they will last a long time. If you are looking for cheaper tires than the AVS Sports, look at the Yoko A520's, they are very reasonably priced and are excellent tires.
