I was looking at the AS, HR and w300 M/S for my tribeca. Thanks
The last set of Yoko Avids I got for my GTi were US made, handled great, ran quiet, had hardly any wear on them after 25k miles, and were not expensive. I'm gonna get a set for my A4.jrm said:I was looking at the AS, HR and w300 M/S for my tribeca. Thanks
Exactly. You don't have to buy the most expensive tires, but I wouldn't buy the most budget either. I run dunlop direzza star spec's for auto-x, and they are twice the tire as my yokohama advan's were that are around $100 a tire more. That being said, I run yoko geolander AT-S on both my 4 runner and my bronco. They're cheaper than BFG's, but offer everything I need on and off road. The point is, don't buy the crap at the bottom of the barrel. Search for information about the mid-level tires that outperform the more expensive tires.One Pivot said:just like bikes, theres a ton of tires that are really great that arent the most expensive things on the market.
ive ran sumitomos on the road, track, mud, snow.. never felt let down at all. some of their tires have beyond more than enough traction for anything short of competition.
yokohamas are very much a budget brand tire. they're good enough, but thats kind of what im saying.
Just wait until you kill the Goodyears. No sense in adding to the landfill.jrm said:They cant be as bad as the OE goodyears on there now. Ok then the recs are the Sumitomo HRs, the Dunlop SP Sports and the Yoko Avids. Now i just need to see which of these comes in a 255/55/18 and are V rated.
I remember my Goodyears, wearing out pretty fast on my GTi, and not sticking too well in the process. They were one of the sportier tires (and I forgot which ones), but were still heavy and squirmy.... and IIRC... only got 25k miles out of them before they were down to the nubs.jrm said:these tires suck
I was getting vibration when id vary my speeds between 75 and say 60 pr 55. Just had the tires balanced and rotated too. As you mentioned i dont drive much but when i do im that much more disappointed in the OE good years. With the furloughs being extended past there proposed sunset date in july i really cant spend the $$$ on tires when tax seasons right around the corner.pimpbot said:I remember my Goodyears, wearing out pretty fast on my GTi, and not sticking too well in the process.

I've had good luck with checking the Tire Rack reviews. Good source of info, even if you don't get them there.
