of course cheaper tires with better treadlife exist. People looking for "cheap" tires want long treadlife so cheap tires tend to be more of the long life variety rather than the grippy variety.

I hate to break it to anyone, but if you go get some tire with a treadwear number of 300 or higher, it's going to corner like crap compared to the bridgestones with 140 treadwear. The grip levels on the bridgestones isn't that bad, it's the pirellis that are terrible (220 treadwear).

anyone who thinks you can get a tire that will last 40,000 miles and handle just as well as the stock RE50's is dead wrong.
