Default tire recommendations

my tires are shot so I need some new ones. These are the choices that I have narrowed it down to. what would be the best all around tire? I already have some nice snow tires so they don't need to be that great in the snow. I'd like a good handling, quiet, comfortable tire with atleast a 60K tread warranty on it.

Pirelli P6000 Sport Veloce

Pirelli'* P6000 Sport Veloce design utilizes the same P6000 family features, but tunes them to all-season performance and extended tread life.

•Pirelli Active Safety System design makes this one of the safest, most predictable ultra high performance tires.

•Large, virtually continuous tread blocks with added siping deliver exceptional traction in all weather conditions. Variable pitch sequence eliminates noise.

•Tread compound utilizes advanced silica technology to deliver low rolling resistance (better fuel mileage) and high wet traction.

•Lightweight carcass design amplifies tread and compound features for exceptional traction and handling.

•Available in a wide range of sizes from 14" to 16" and profiles ranging from 50 to 65 series.

Yokohama YK420

You want your tires to deliver the higher performance that was designed into your car but at the same time you insist on ride comfort and excellent wear. We teamed with Yokohama to build an all-new radial that would deliver on all counts. The YK420 performance radial utilizes the latest in tire design and manufacturing technology... including a long wearing, high traction compound, a unique tread design that delivers excellent traction in all seasons and high-tech engineering inside and out for a smooth, quiet ride. The YK420 is now available at prices which make it a best value. Available only at your nearby Discount Tire /America'* Tire store.

• Cap Base Compound
Increases flexibility in lower temperatures for better all-season traction and increases rigidity at high temperatures to improve stability and handling.
• Optimal Void Ratio
Computer-optimized tread to void ratio delivers maximum rubber-to-road contact for quicker response and improved safety.
• Circumferential Grooves
The large circumferential grooves enhance high-speed stability while delivering outstanding water evacuation for excellent wet traction.
• Contoured Bead Design
Precise tire-to-rim fit improves handling and delivers a very smooth ride.
• 20-degree V-Goove
A feature that makes the YK420 clearly different from the AVID designs, the grooves maximize water drainage and deliver superior wet traction.

Yokohama Avid V4s

Yokohama'* new AVID H4s/V4s takes the daily drive to new heights in performance, confidence and comfort. This remarkable performance level is the product of key design features including specialized compound technology.

•Large shoulder blocks deliver more rubber-to-road contact for enhanced cornering grip.

•Continuous center rib generates a better "on center" feel and enhances high-speed stability.

•Four wide circumferential grooves ensure efficient water evacuation and improve lateral traction in snow.

•Staggered block design works with the four circumferential grooves to improve both lateral stability and snow traction.

•Multiple cross grooves provide more edges for improved wet and snow traction

Yokahama AVS DB S2

Quiet comfort meets uncompromised high performance in this new design. The AVS dB is Yokohama'* quietest ultra-high performance tire, yet it offers an impressive combination of features that used to be called impossible. Unique tusk groove design reduces air compression under load for low highway noise. Active flex control, AFC, absorbs bumps without sacrificing lateral stiffness for impressive ride comfort and handling. Circumferential and tusk grooves channel water away to resist hydroplaning. Continuous tread block maximizes tread to road contact and improves all weather traction

Goodyear Assurance Triple Tred

Assurance TripleTred addresses the needs of the value-oriented customer who wants safety for themselves and their families. They want a tire that will get them through any weather with peace of mind.

Key Features and Benefits

•Three unique tread zones: Handles any weather condition.

•Ice Zone with interlocking tread: Gripping power on icy or slick roads.

•Water Zone with deeply carved Aquachutes: Propels water away from tread for excellent wet traction.

•Outer Dry Zone with tread reinforcement: Confident handling around curves, potholes, unexpected debris.

•PermaBlack Compound: New tire look throughout tread life.

•80,000 mile limited tread warranty: Among the very best.

•Driver Assurance Package: Total Consumer Confidence. UTQG Rating 740A
