Recently, my brother has discovered that he needed tires on his 99 Buick Regal. So he searched on a site called tirerack.com, which is supposed to have the best prices on tires, and by far, they do. So while he was looking for tires for his, I got a wild hair to have him search on the there and see how much my tires would cost when it comes time to replace them. For the exact same tire that comes on the car, which is the Firestone Firehawks GTA 02 P205/ 50R16, are around $87 and some cents per tire. Not bad considering around here if you bought that tire at a tire shop, it would cost you from 130-150. Anyways, the price isn't the issue. On top of him seeing how much they were, he was reading the reviews on them. There wasn't one good review on them. The main complaints were that they were too noisy and they didn't handle well on wet roads. A few said that they didn't get much wear out of them, but that wasn't a big complaint. I only have almost 20k on mine and the wear is min. They are holding up excellent to my standards, and I bet I can get a good 40k out of them. I haven't noticed that they are noisy and as far as wet traction goes, haven't had a big problem on that and have driven in tons of rain. Was just wondering what everyone's review of this tire was on here and would anyone recommend another tire other than the factory tire.
