Not sure on what exactly came on your vehicle, but I'd go with 225/70-16 Continential CrossContact LX20 with EcoPlus Technology or the Firestone Destination LE 2

Thanks Tom, MORE question but would like to know why those? I probably should have said I miss the quiet comfortable 'cadillac' ride. I prefer all season as w do get some snow (rarely major or long lasting)


Most people do not know, but the OEM tires that come on new vehicles constantly change so it doesn't matter. The car manufacturers write there own tire specs and send them out to bid. Who ever gets the lowest bid makes the tires and put their name on them. Usually the tires are of a lesser quality and do not perform as good as the than the identically dealer tires name tire sold at the tire dealership. Traction, ride, tread wear etc. , so just go get a pair from a tire name you trust and like. I replaced the Bridgestones (Already showing a lot of tread wear at 19,000 miles) on my 2011 SantaFe with the Firestone Destination LE 2's and got an immensely better ride with less road noise or tire sounds, and the traction is quite a bit better so far than the originals. My son' 09 Elantra had the same problem when purchased new Don't remember the tire brand, but one week out of the dealership brand new, first snow, the car tries to leave the roadway twice and the brakes couldn't stop the car worth a damn. Replaced them with Firestones and never had another problem with it.
