Default Tire Recommendations

Can you guys please recommend some tires for my 1999 LeSabre with the 15" wheels? They are for good mileage, decent traction, and long life if possible. I am not the most aggressive driver out there by a long shot. Thanks!

Ended up getting Pirelli P4 Four Seasons because I found them on a decent deal. They should be arriving next week sometime.

Mods, you can delete this thread!

We don't delete threads. I see you waited a whole hour for advice before making a choice.

BTW, this wasn't a mechanical problem, so I moved it from 92-99 to General Chat.

I have new P4'* that where installed on my GTP and they have done well, even in near record snowfalls this winter.

They're coming off in a few weeks in lieu of my SSEi chromes, but ya, the P4'* are good.

Will, sorry about the request. And no problem in moving it around.

Jim, I'm glad to hear your experiences with the tire!

Eh, they were at a decent price with shipping, and I kinda need tires since something took a large chunk out of the right front tire. Add to that unsafe one a tire that was not going to be passed once inspection rolled around in a couple months, and a newer mis-matched tire on the rear that was previously on the front along with the tire that wouldn't pass inspection. I knew I would have needed at least 1 new tire. Now with two needing replacement and unable to rotate, I pulled the trigger.

Here'* why I acted so quickly. I hope the image is sized correctly.

Does Road Hazard Warranty come with your tires?

It looks that tire with the chunk out of it isn't past 4/32'* [hard to tell but it looks like a lot of miles left on it anyway] and would have had some sort of pro-rated value.
