I have a '94 Toyota MR2 turbo with Yoko A022 on it. The rear tires wore out after 6,000 miles. Tires are $153 each. Looking for an alternative. The Dunlop SP 8000 and the Bridgestone RE71 seem to both be good with the RE71 having a little better performance (Tire Rack). Looking for predictable break away and good response. Anyone have either of these on an MR2 or a rear engine car. MR2 is mid engine.

My best friend had the SP8000's on his MR2 (non-tubo). Response was great and break away was smooth. The rears wore a bit quick - I don't know how much mileage he got, but I know he pushed it hard! I've heard the 9000's are great tires too. Never tried or heard about the Bridgestones.
