Well summer is here and I went to go put my summer tires on my Malibu. I noticed that I am getting very close to the wear bars and I do NOT want to chance it.
I am currently running a tire called Motomaster LXR touring tire ( I put on ALOT of mileage in a year). I found they lack a bit in the traction department. So I am looking for a change. Below I will show my choices and let me know if you have tried any of these tires before. OH and the price I quote are in CAD.
I apologies now for the larger pictures but I wanted to make sure you see the treads.
Here are my current tires, they are on sale right now for 75$ and have a 130,000km tread life warranty
I had a look at the Goodyear Assurance triple tread tires they are 129$ a piece with a 130,000 km tread life warranty
I was also looking at the Toyo Ultra 800 Touring tires, they have a 160,000kms tread life warranty and I can get them installed for 131,99$ each plus 15% tax
Then there is the Toyo TPT tire that are 8$ more each than the Ultra 800 Tires and come with 100,000km tread life
While at the store I seen a few that I liked the tread on so I got a quote on them too.
They are the Hercules HP 4000, they run 96,99$ each installed plus the great 15% tax, but I can't remember what kind of tread life on them, I am guessing around the 100,000km range
AND finally I seen the Merit Mystic Touring Tire, running at 92,99 each.
Now I have never really heard of the Hercules or the Merit for that matter. But the tread was pretty good on them and not bad price. But I don't wanna cheap out and get disappointed. Hence the reason I posted here to get opinions.
