I use the all weather version Goodrich gForce'*. Tire'* are like women, everybodies got their own opinion. LOL Tire Rack - Your performance experts for tires and wheels has the best prices I've seen. Look the specials over and check the wear and other ratings over good. I sure others will chime in with their favs you can compare there as well.

It will depend on what you want the tires for? I run FirehawkGT in the summer. Great traction, great handling. But not good for winter. So I have a different set for winter. To get the best performance from tires, you will need 2 different sets. I have 3 sets. winter tires, summer tires, track tires.

HAHA... interesting... the Assurance has been one of the main tires issued on Cadillacs... got a set on mine... bought from a friend that had them for his caddy before he upgraded to 17s

awesome tires... not top of the line but good handling and smooth running

I run em on my 94 ssei and they are really good in my opinion... not aquatreads but still run really well on wet and snowy terrain... plus theyre soft enough to stick to keep spin to a minimum, handle most hard turns, and ride smooth but hard enough to last a good long while... theyre one of the better "regular" tires ive ran so far

good all weather but if your wanting something for true summer only... go with eagle f1s or nittos or something more sticky
