if you look around you can get the 615 for around 100-120 per tire

Yeah, 225/50R16 are $118 shipped from DiscountTireDirect.com. That's not bad, but it's over $100 per set more than the MX. For autocrossers, the Azenis are the way to go, and for street use I'd go with MXs.

Can someone post what load ratings are acceptable for the contour. I am looking at a set of tires that are exactly the same, except the load ratings are 87W and 91H. There is a $36 price difference per tire. Just wondering if the lower rating acceptable.
