What kind of tires do I need for a 2008 chevy uplander?
Tires have many variables that affect drivability and safety...Depending on how you use your Uplander...like most things...you get what you pay for...It is usually best to stay with original tire size...ie...225/60/R16..(This confirms speedometer accuracy and tire wheelwell clearances). Comparison by mileage warranty will help assure good quality. All season tread pattern is best overall...For best ride quality the Michelin Harmony is hard to beat. Yokohama tires have proven to be great performers, but do not ride as soft as the Michelin...Goodyear design and quality is not the leader as they used to be in the 1980's...still OK but harsh ride and poor performance in slippery weather...Bridgestone is good also, but not as good as the Michelin or Yokohama...You will be pleasantly surprised with either the Michelin or Yokohama...Tire sidewalls are required to show the USDT rating for temperature and treadwear comparison...Last but just as important is tire air pressure...35 lbs psi is best for everyday driving, handling, and tread wear...Hope this helps.
