Tires for Your Cage

So, I have to get a new set of tires before winter and was wondering what brand of tires you guys like to put on your cage (especially if you drive a boring 4 door/family sedan type car)?

Re: Tires for Your Cage

Just put a set on the wifey's PT. Got a set of Cooper's for a good price. $300 a set for a 75,000 mile tire. Good quiet ride and good tread pattern for winter.

It's amazing how stupid some people can be.

Re: Tires for Your Cage

My performance tire buying days are over since I now have a Civic. But for the money I really like the Kumho's. I have a friend who swears by Hancock tires.

Look, lean, believe!!

Re: Tires for Your Cage

I have Pirelli P400 all season touring tires on my Monte Carlo SS. Its not really a 4 door family car but its pretty much just as big. I like them they're decent enough, suppose to be 60k mile tires I think but they don't look like they'd last that long.

if you can't convince them, confuse them.

I'll suffice to say the 95 a friend had went through 5 engines (all under warranty) so he never even made it to the point where the head gaskets would blow. That motor was notorious for blowing the head gasket.

he aslo went through 2 tranny's. and blew out the entire suspension when he some how jumped a 1 foot wall (I don't really believe that story).

In the cars defense he and anyone else who drove it beat the ever living **** out of it.

he had the car for 2.5 years I think before buying a 2001 Eclipse GT (when it first came out) which has taken the beatings and comes back for more.

So after all the abuse you're blaming the car and not your idiot friend for the blown drivetrain?

well 2 out of the 5 were Fords fault. One time he got it back and it was worse than when he brought it in. he beats the Mitsu just as bad and it hasn't had any problems. He shattered a crankshaft one time, how often do you ever hear of a crank breaking into hundreds of tiny pieces?

but the Ford 3.8 would blow head gaskets if they got enough miles (well it would actually rip them because the heads and block would expand and contract at very different rates when heated and cooled off to extremes)

if you can't convince them, confuse them.

No, like soon2b954 said my performance car tire buying days are over at least for now.

I really liked my Michelins I had before, but for $150 a tire I should. Was just wondering if anybody else had any luck with something a bit less expensive - after all its not like Im after a ZR rated tire.

CBR929RE: 5 engines in under 36k. Thats got to be a record. Does your buddy not believe in oil changes?
