If I can get my "project Dad Bod" 2008 Cadillac STS going I think I would like to try autocross in it. Maybe also $2000challenge if I can get everything fixed under that budget. 
 

Not really looking to be competitive but just want to have fun.
 

Also will want to drive it to work now and then about 15miles each way. 
 

Car weighs about 4,000lbs. RWD about 320 HP.  So like a Pontiac G8 GT but just less powerful. 
 

Looks like it could fall into Cam-C if I wanted to run it there. Otherwise I couldn't find it under the class listing in the rules. 
 

Any tire recommendations?

I’m not sure what the tread wear requirements are for CAM-C, but the Toyo R-888’s do very well on heavy cars.

200TW or higher.

The right answer is rivals but those are pricey. If you just want to have fun the falken 615k+ is probably your best budget option.

Plenty of heavy cars in CAM-C including my 2010 CTS-V. The Continental Extremecontact Sport is a favorite of CTS-V owners, might be a good choice.

If the car is stock, it could run in F Street under NOC (not otherwise classified).

Falken 660.  Price is right for a top line competition tire and also has a proven wet tread design.
