Look into Federal SS595, not to expensive and handle well. They just wear on the faster side than most name brand tires.

Also, stay away from running different tire widths front and back as this will destroy the clutches in your center diff.

Tires are one of the most important things on your car. Going with the CHEAPEST option is almost always the worst choice.

He drives an FRS so he can run staggered sizes

D'oh, never mind on stagger, but since stock sizes aren't staggered, I still don't see the point of doing it on these cars unless rubbing is an issue. Suspension still stock too?
