Hello, I bought a set of Yokohama tires for my car. I researched the DiscountTire.com Website and chose them for being quiet, good performance, and a soft ride (long life). I believe I originally read about them in a Consumers Report test or a Mechanics Illustrated article.

The Series I chose was equivalent to the Triple-Tread design another maker has. I had my concerns about snow traction and long distance high-speed use and they have performed well. I took several road trips from Michigan to the Texas coast(24 Hours with only Pit-Stops) and they were a good choice. Only had concerns of a high pitched singing noise on about 5% of unfamiliar roads which could have made a noise with any tire.

As with any test, new models of an old name may test differently in the Year it is made. The YOKO's now show as less fuel-efficient than only a few makes. Everything is a compromise with Tire compounds. I gained 5% better mileage by changing the Series from a 60 to a 65.

Unless you had a problem with the original tires, I would say to compare your tire to the YOKO's and see what you gain for the price. You do have to do front to rear rotations as compared to cross-rotations because of the tread pattern.

What are the best brand of tires for my 2002 Hyundai Santa Fe GL?


I've had great success with BF Goodrich Long Trail TA tires on my 2002 SF GLS AWD. Long wearing, comfortable ride... got well over 90,000 miles on each set. (I keep them inflated to correct PSI and well aligned!)

What the best tires for 2007 bmw 750i


Per TireRack.com, there were four tire size options for a 2007 BMW 750i starting at 18 inch going to 21 inch wheels. You will need to know what size you car currently has and whether they are staggered (narrow front/wider rear) or the same front/rear. You will also need to know if they are "Run flat" or regular. The site has good testing articles and ratings of various brands. The Uniform Tire Quality Grade number rates tire longevity (higher number lasts longer 100= approx. 7,200 miles) and the letters are for traction (AA is best) and temperature (A is best).
Continental Extreme Contact DWS is available in your size works well as an Ultra High Performance All Season.

What is the proper tire for the 1999 jeep grand cherokee laredo


Trick question.....no fair!!!!!!

Seriously, it depends on your application. I had a 1999 and now drive a 2001......

The best advice will be from a good tire store... I can only offer you what I know based on experience.

A good "All Season" M/S (mud and snow) tire rated "Traction A" is OK for "all season" driving UNLESS you are facing allot of mud and snow!

If so, you need "off road" or "snow" tires.... if you are looking at lots of ice on the road, you need to have them "studded". You will have to change this type of tire after the winter season is over as required by law. Also, these tires make allot of "road noise" and are unsuitable for things like commuting down the freeway.

You will get the best advice from your local tire dealer because even though we can give you generic answers like those I just provided, your local tire dealer can understand much better exactly what you want to use your Jeep for in your particular neighborhood, and give you exactly what you need.

Looking for best all season tires


Michelin is the best (better than Goodyear some say) and Michelin Hydroedge is the best of the best all season water tread design with a wear rating of 800 and an A traction overall rating with an 80,000 mi. warranty.

I have a set of 4 from Sears on my 1990 Cadillc Deville and their balance and wearability is tremendous.

Best tires for 2007 Lexus GS AWD


For a GS350 AWD : MICHELIN P225/50R17/XL 98V.

Michelin is the safest, "quietest" and best tire on the market. Once you get past the sticker shock the longevity and ride performance far outlasts anyting else on the market.

If you are not in a climate that has snow, choose the Primacy HP series 225/50R 17 94V.

Either will do but go Michelin for your vehicle.( no...I don't work for Michelin...just bought alot of them over the years)
