Default Tires...

So yeah my tires have some tiny cracks in em and when I steer in a hard corner the front end starts going where it wants to and the rear does its thing just fine (cant remember if thats called understeer or oversteer) Do all 00+ sseis do that? Anyways I know nothing about tires so I'll have to ask for even more help (sorry guys) I want a tire for under 120 each that is has performance grip but doesn't transfer road noise very much. I'm not worried about winter cuzz this is alabama. I really appreciate the input if you have any.

Bonnevilles are heavy sedans, especially the 00+ SLE'* & SSEi'* You won't experience any oversteer. Not really sure what tires to recommend for under $120 a piece though. You want something of good quality underneath you even being in Bama especially if doimg speeds in excess of 70 mph on turnpikes & interstates. It'* a safety thing with me, just my .02.

they are decent tires..

Look at the BFG TA'* also.

I had the BFG'* and they were under 120 per tire....I have the assurances now...and they were 115 before some discounts.

geez, I've got some Goodyear knockoffs and I've been up to 120 with them and they were perfectly stable. I don't think you'd notice a big difference... Oh yeah, I got two of those for 200 dollars, 60,000 mile warranty, and free rotating and balancing for the life of the tires

$115 each.

If you're not worried about winter, why get all seasons? They can't touch any decent dry/wet tire, especially anything performance oriented.

BFG KD-W $100-120 each
Goodyear Eagle F1 GS-D3 $130-150 each

They're not a, 80,000 mile tire, but they'll be top performance rubber for your ride.

A tip in tire shopping...don't get the goodyears with serrated or grooved sidewalls if you ever use tire shine. My Eagle GT-Hr'* with these grooves like to sling a lot of tire shine.
