Default Tire Recommendations?

I'm looking to get new tires and wonder if anyone has any suggestions for me? I've really liked my Pirelli PZero Neros but if possible would like something less expensive. If there aren't any better suggestions I'll go for them again.

I have some Sumitomo'* on mine. They are an all season an work very well.

Can't find them on Tire Rack anymore.

I'm pretty sure it'* this one. Tread pattern matches. http://www.sumitomotire.com/cars/pro...ring_lshv.aspx

I have the stock Eagle RS-As on my monte now but in the next month or so I'm changing to Eagle GT'* to see how those are since they're less expensive then the RS-As

Just a recommendation, try out http://www.discounttiredirect.com. They often have some of the best deals on the internet, and the shipping is FREE. Tire rack usually charges for shipping, so you ended up paying a lot more than what the site actually lists the tire at. Discount Tire Direct has great customer service too. I've bought my last couple sets of tires from there and was always extremely happy with them, and saved quite a bit of money.

Yeah, Discount Tire is by far the best online tire company. If you live in a state where they have an actual store then it'* even better!

Treadepot has served me very well too.

Right now you can get a good deal on Michelin HydroEdge, they have a $70 mail in rebate, and treadepot throws $25 off a set of 4 also.

Want to know why its even better?

Because they will price match **online** prices in store. Find those tires *anywhere* online (except ebay), and they will beat the price + shipping in the store. So if you find a tire for $150 shipped (per tire, on a set of 4) on some random website that nobody uses, they will knock that down at least $5 a tire. I did that with the Kumho ASX'* on the Bonneville and they came out cheaper than tirerack.com by $12 per tire.

Speaking of tires, Kumho ASX'* in my tire size are excellent tires. I'm a sore hater of Goodyear. I've had way too many shitty goodyear tires, and the Eagle RSA'* that the GXP'* come with are by far the biggest pieces of crap I've ever used. $270 a tire and they are flat out terrible in wet, snow, and ice traction, and they're practically bald by 40k to boot! I've known some people who didn't get past 30k on a brand new set.

I had Pirelli P4'* on my car. Great in the snow and dry pavement......not so great in the rain.

Goodyear Eagle white lettering tires would be sweet on your ride.
