tire size and brand?

what's the stock tire size on the v6 for all 4? i'm getting my tires replaced soon because apparently all of them have gone bad. also what's a good brand that's pretty good quality and also for a cheap price? I'm searching for perhaps around $500-$700. thx

Re: tire size and brand?

So I went onto the Sears automotive website and the Falken Tires were actually cheaper than the Michellin tires themselves? how's that possible? unless it's not the falken tires i'm thinking of, cuz if it's the Falken tires i'm thinking of I might just go with those

Nitto and nexen are my fav. Look em up, pay close attention to the specs. Ull find they r regarded the best by the majority of users. Nitto r spendy but nexen are much better on the wallet. Im wearing nexen now and i can promise you wont b disapointed in those.

Re: tire size and brand?

my friend recommended to me nittos also but which one is able to withstand burning a tiny bit of rubber from dumping the clutch from a complete stop? i sometimes have to change lanes right after a green light so it happens. i thought falkens were good for withstanding that situation but now that u bring it up, nittos sound good too but how about pricing?

i was also told by my uncle to get tires that had a H rating because it can withstand up to 120 mph or something like that? how come the FALKEN ZIEX 912 isn't able to do so?

Re: tire size and brand?

honestly some Riken Raptors from Discount tire is all a sixxer really needs on a stock wheel...good dry and wet traction and they have a good long life even when treated hard. besides i wouldn't waste my money on high end tires for stock 16" wheels...buy a good cheaper tire so you can save for some better wheels down the road. just my opinion

+1 and yes the r16 was the most important that's what fits your rim.

i actually don't plan on ordering them from online and i need my car urgently so my best option is to go to sears and see what they have. most likely i'll go with falkens or riken raptors. i wish i could go with nittos but perhaps in the near future yes.

Ya ur right, nexen are more obtainable than nitto bit only slightly less in quality. I am not nice to my tires at all and they continue to impress me. Ive driven across the entire US in them and they still have great tread life. I think those r worth searching for. I did my research b4 buying and i feel i choose the right ones. Well im not gonna try to convince u anymore, ive said my piece.

Agree, they are the only ones i go to, u can even haggle the price even though they are already the best price around. They usually have what i want within a few days if they dont have it in stock.
