Mine are Cooper Lifeliners, I got them dirt cheap at the dealership I work at, and I love em'! Hardly any road noise and do greatin wet roads and dry conditions so far, can't wait to see how they handle in the winter!

I hated the Goodyear RSA'* in the snow, and got rid of them as soon as I could. I buy my tires from a local tire wholesaler, who I trust. He recommended an off-brand tire made by Goodyear that I have been very happy with. Cheaper, and better. :P

Here'* last year'* discussion on it...

I'm running 255/50/17 Continental ContiExtremeContact tires. They are a little bit louder than the GYs, but the winter/wet traction and handling is the best I've ever had. Right around $100 ea.

Default My Tires

I replaced my stock RSAs at 55,000. I have had Michelin Pilot Sport A/* and they are awesome! Have 90,000 miles now and lots of tread remaining. Handle amazing in the rain and the snow and really launch on dry.

I have 255/45/ZR18s. I highly recommend the Pilot Sports. They are a bit pricy but not too bad but when you do the cost analysis..they perform great and last a really long time.

Just my two cents
Jason

I'm in the minority, but I've been happy with the RSA'*. I got 75K out of them. They are going for $145 balanced and installed around here.
