Tires

What are good tires for the money? I want a standard ride. Not a plush ride like a Cadillac but not as harsh as a go cart. And anything. Besides these stock bf goodrich radials, ugh total crap IMO

I have the Sumitomo HTR Z III's from American Muscle, and I love them! I only have about 500 miles on em though. They aren't bad little more Cadillac than my OEM Prielli's. But by far not go cart. Also AM has cool wheels you could dress it up a bit.

How long does it say they hold up for? When Carroll Shelby died I lit up my tires and now I'm left with little to none :/

Haha! I forgot to light up my old mines. It didn't say how long to be honest. I'd guess 35-40,000k miles if your good to them.

Most of my traveling to work and college is interstate. And since last semester, or around January the tread has been eat up from it. I want a descent ride and a durable tire. Perrellis are expensive but are thy work it? Or michelins.

Re: Tires

Bf goodrich? Is yours a base model? I thought it was pirelli across the board. Our stangs ride is pretty harsh no matter what. I have a 99 infiniti suv with almost 200,000kms and original suspension...handles the bumps much better than the sporty stang.

Heres an idea...hit up kijiji or craigslist and look for someone who upgraded their wheels, and is selling their stockers... maybe you can find some near new tread and nicer oem wheels that will cost hundreds less than buying new.

It's a v6 premium automatic. And I knew it was gonna be rough. My last one was but in 10 years it is a little smoother. Perelli is for the ones higher than mine and gt's I believe. Or what I've seen. I just noticed that in one semesters time, my tread has gone down drastically and if this keeps up I'll be getting tires by August. Does a harder compound make for a hasher ride but give more durability? Or do they make soft and hard compounds in tires?

Well what he's saying is look to upgrade off someones discards. The stock BFG's are cheap you probably needed the pony package, to get the P's. I'm a tire novice, I hate them. But an all season is harder, summer is lighter.

Topless04GT, Josh sells them for a living. Shoot him a PM; I'm sure he'd point towards a good tire. I honestly hate tires. They are expensive pieces of rubber.

He's really nice, and I'm sure he'd be glad to answer your question much better than myself.

I'm a fan of Falcon tires, they perform well at a very reasonable price. I have the FK 452's and I love them.

I had 3 sets of hankook hr2 on my 02 in high school and they must have been summer because I would change them in less than 6 months. And what's the difference between a pony package and premium? Jw. I have looked into nitto and they seem to be what I'm leaning toward, or michilan. But perrelllis have good water tread but my mother says they haven't last too long, or at least what she though. I guess what I'm trying to get at in all this is: if I'm going to spend the money, make it count.

And 2nd hand use it cool. Provided that the tread is still good and the sizing. Craigslist is looking pretty good for that lol

Re: Tires

I'm a fan of the Pirellis. They dont last as long as some of the other tires but they have great traction, and a smooth ride in wet and dry weather. I drive mostly on the autobahn/highway, im pretty rough on my tires and haven't had a complaint yet.

Re: Tires

I've always been a fan of the BFG G-Forces. Have KDW2 on now and love them. Had the Sumi Htz and didn't like the tread wear pattern. Were also a little stiff for me didn't hook up that well. When I heated them up seemed to be even worse. Can't comment on life of tire because I tend to be heavy on the gas. Just my hope this helps.
