Default I need new tires....help me decide!

Ok, I have 45k on my car now...and winter is coming so I need to get new tires. I've done some research and decided I'm going to get a really decent rated tire. Problem is everytime I see some excellant reviews, I find really bad reviews....it'* making me nutz. Life was easier when I was a kid and had to buy used tires one at a time. LOL

My top 5 are:

GoodYear Assurance TripleTred
GoodYear Assurance ComfortTred
Michelon HydroEdge
Michelon Harmony
Cooper Lifeliner STE

Yeah, each is about $110 each...but if they last 80k.....

I'm also getting PowerSlot rotors for the front and some decent ceramic pads. The rears are fine so they can wait until next year. lol

Good choices on the brakes!

And add another to your list of tires. Toyo Proxes TPT tires are VERY good, and have directional tread.

I like my BFG T/A H'* Really good grip on the road and they do pretty damn well in the snow for an all season.
