I have an 07 XT. With the stock 17's. What are the best tires I can purchase to replace my geosqueelers? I live in Florida and dont see snow. Id like wider tires if possible
Good question. Considering that snow and ice aren't issues, then the Bridgestone Turanza Serentity might be worth considering. Various sizes are available in H or V speed ratings. See attached chart.What is your definition of best? Traction? Thread wear? Noise? Price? Do you drive in wet weather a lot?
I concur!I've been happy with our set of Michelin Exalto A/S tires. Run quiet, I've squeezed about 70,000 miles out of them with another 10k+ to go (going to change them before that, with snow coming), handle nicely, but cost a fair bit. You can probably find something a little more warm-weather suited, since these were engineered with some snow capability in mind.
No more Yokohama's for me! I run a different set of rims and winter tires for at least 4 months and it looks like my S Drives will only last 4 summers max and they seem to dance around a little bit in the rain. Good dry grip though and fairly quiet but I am disappointed by less than stellar wet grip and tire wear.I think you should try... Yokohama S Drives. Heard a lot of good things about it.
Do you run dedicated snow tires in the winter?I think I've narrowed my search between the BF Goorich Touring T/A 70k tire and the Goodyear ComfortTred 80k tire for similar price. It's for Michigan, so we get all sorts of weather.
What do you guys think?
