Default yay! time to buy some TIRES!! :)

hey guys!

now that the crank position sensor maintenance work is done i can focus on something fun for a change. it'* time to get a new set of tires for my 2000 Bonneville SSEi. Thought I would ask you guys your opinion on what would be a good set to buy or what works for you. I'm currently running the stock goodyears. have to admit they are a pretty good tire. what else do you guys recommend?

plz keep in mind that i'm buying 4 all season tires and the climate where i live is a mix of rain and sun. vancouver bc oh and i'm most likely gunna buy em from the tire rack . com seems like they have some decent prices on rubber

thanks again guys!
take care and merry christmas!

I had these tires on my Monte. I couldn't stand them at all, and that was in dry hot Florida weather. When it rained it was worse.

If you buy another set of Goodyear'* go to www.treadepot.com

They are cheaper than Tire Rack.

I have Goodyear Eagle F1'* on my GXP wheels and they work good in all weather, yes even snow. I just picked up a couple of Goodyear Eagle RS-A'* for my factory 17'* I'm looking to try out when I get around to putting them back on for winter

I bought BF Goodrich Radial TA'*. They seem ok so far. I have had them through the snow recently with good results.
I bought them at Sam'* For $15 a tire they mount, spin balance, and dispose of the tires for you. You also get a road hazard policy too.

I have had some Nexen N5000s last me a year, and some Pirelli P Zero Neros last me a year. So I would not recommend either of those. I must drive kinda hard (about 20k/yr on th bonneville).
