I really like the stock Goodyear Eagle RS-a tires. They NEVER squeel, they stick very well on wet and dry pavement. They are OK in the winter. Wear on them seems to be alright but with a treadwear of 260 they weren't meant to last long.

I bought my car second hand and it now has 93,000 kms on it or 58,125 miles so I don't know if these are the originals or they were replaced with OEM tires again but I will need new ones before winter starts.

I have windstar directionals, they throw water like a champ (not like my 42 inch boggers) but, if u want great tires, awesome tred pattern, low profile look, without the price go windstar, i love them.

Hmmmm,

My favorite tire brand is Kumho, because they make so many good tires for cheap.

It's funny, but Goodyear is one of my least favorite brands, because they make so many crappy tires, but they do make the F1 GS-D3 which is on my car now, and which is, IMO, probably the best all-around sports tire there is.

Tire salesman looked at me funny when I told him to take the new P6s off, because they were a good 50k tire, but I was used to 25k tires that stick. He told me that was the opposite of what most people said, LOL.

I have good luck with Toyo and Yokohama over the years. The first time I tried Toyo was on a 78 Datsun 200SX 25+ years ago. Around $120 installed for some 13" tires and I put 100k miles on them.

the pirelli p6 tires that came on my 04 zx3 are junk ! They were good on dry pavement marginally ok on wet and absolutely horrible on snow. A excellent replacement is the BF Goodrich traction ta Superb dry grip unbelieveable wet traction And excellent snow traction

My focus came with Pirelli P6's. I have to say they have been great. Much better than the firestones that came with my 01 focus. These tires ride comfortable, steer and corner very well, performs great in rain, but average in snow. I've driven over some rough roads, potholes, etc, tires have held up great. I'd recommend for all season.
