New tires Suzuki XL-7 (2007)

My Suzuki XL-7 (2007) is in desperate need of new tires. Currently has the factory Bridgestone 235/60-17 which are a strange size and not many good tires can be found. Looking at the Cooper Discoverer CTS 245/65-17 (high Consumer Reports rating) but I'm wondering if they'll rub the wheel wells??

Any suggestions on a good tire for my beloved Suzuki?

245/65R17 is a much more popular size however it is generally(tire sizes are not uniform) about 1 to 1.5 inches bigger in diameter & about a half inch wider. This means you will need about an inch more clearance when the front wheels are max turned, left or right. Also allow for suspension bounce. As far as type of tire: first decide on your priorities (ie..max traction, smooth ride) & then the choice will be easy

What type of tire is recommended for a 2003 Pontiac Grand Am GT?


If the vehicle has the standard factory 16 inch wheels fitted you will need to purchase tires in the size: 225/50R/16. There are many brands and designs/models of tire available in that size. ( The size of tire currently fitted to your car is written on the sidewall of the tire).

There are many cheap and nasty tires on the market so go for a reputable brand and select a premium performance tire. Many cheap tires are poorly built and cannot be properly balanced so you will get a vibration through your steering wheel that any amount of tire re-balancing cannot correct. Often the cheap tires also offer very poor levels of grip and generate a lot of road noise when driving.

Always buy the very best tires you can afford.

Goodyear Eagle GT (all season tire) would be a sound selection and prices are reasonable.

Bridgestone RE 960 AS (all season tire) would also be a good selection.
