this is an HUGE area of discussion~ what do you want out of your tires? longevity? stick to the road? good for 50,000 miles? there are so many brands...was quite upset when I could not get Cooper tires for my MINI Cooper...they don't make 'em for those...the ole time whitewall is stiking...easy to spot your own car at a crowded parking place (airport)~ bottom line is if you want the Michelins they still have a cartoon mascot that is cute~

I have hankooks and they are junk all warped and just terribele.. I like water and snoe traction.. we do get a lot of snow here.. I think I will go with the goodyear triple tread.. although Michelin is a great tire... pricy but good

I don't like hankooks either, Michelins are good like you said but pricey. Look into Continentials, Firestone and Yokohama's for a little less money.

I have Yokohama Avid ENVigor, I got it in 2010, so it sees 3 springs and summers. so far I love the ride, really good traction on vet, in snow, not really good. imgurl= okohama_envigor.jpg&imgrefurl= catalog/yokohama-envigor-tires-2254517-94h-rpb-pi- 128019.html? image%3D0&h=640&w=800&sz=95&tbnid=PVelNfkEu6XbwM :&tbnh=90&tbnw=113&zoom=1&usg=__W8O_p4MA3Eo6xBu JLjhdhpyYSNQ=&docid=vsd6RvqLMCcPLM&sa=X&ei=3PDrUY y9NdOXqAGXq4GQBA&ved=0CDcQ9QEwAw&dur=2047

why are Yokohamas better? Want Coopers for my mini Cooper? John at Berkeley Motor Works said my rears were "scary bad"...think I barely see the top of lincoln's head...not driving in bad weather (this is California)...they could be Baldies 'cause I've got 4 wheel disc brakes~ (they'd give you a ticket for that)

Amir Salamat

well the reason the I say Yokohama is good because i Corner and brake like crazy all the time, and i din't have any problem with the tires yet. well the side is Gone a little bit after 3 years. but the tred is holding up well. .

my Yokohamas are the ones that are "scary bad" certainly if my local TIRE PROs carries these would consider them~...thanks Amir~


i have them on my 1985 el camino and they have been great with the 70 dollar rebate u get one free. and a 90 tho warranty
