Just curios what tires you have & your thoughts?
We're those P-zero nero a/s fast wearing? What made you go w/ the General's vs the dws's?I've had two sets of General G max As03 zrated all season tires on my ST. Good tires dry and wet, pretty decent snow traction too. They ride great, no noise. Way better than the loud as heck eagle gts tires i replaced. Years ago on my SVTF I had Pirelli pzero nero m&s tires, which were also a good all season tire.
Yea, if I didn't have to deal w/ cruddy winter weather, I'd be on the Dunlop star spec's or the DW'sI currently have a set of DWS's and replaced the crappy dealer tires that wore way too quick and were so noisy I couldn't even hear anything else.
I had a set on my last car and they performed well in all weather and I was surprised at how well they did in the snow not being a winter tire.
Good enough to buy again for my focus. Glad you like them felix.
The tires got noisy because they wore irregularly - which I can only assume was caused by driving on the bad wheel bearings for over a year. The same thing happened to my Nokian winter tires (but not as badly since they're not as wide) and I couldn't even rotate them to the opposite side of the vehicle without dismounting them because they're directional.Thanx for your input, PratoN. So the Michelin pilot sport 3's were noisy or the wheel bearings? And you had to replace the w/b's at low mileage?
Out of all the tires I have had, The 215 40/18 continental extreme contact dw were by far the best.
^^^Those are suppose to do really good, specially in wet conditions.
^^^From what I read & reviewed these are the best a/s tires for snowy/icy conditions. Thanx for your input you guys.Kumho Solus:
^^^ Fast wearing tires is what I found
Hankook Ventus V4 215/45ZR17:
^^^ Directional dry/wet tire that are pretty good for the coin.
Goodyear Eagle Authority 215/45ZR17 91W:
^^^ Asymmetrical tires that you can cross rotate & of course similar to the Goodyear gt's. Let us know down the road how you like them & how they're holding up.
I was considering the Continental Extreme Contact DWS Tires but it literally was $16 out of my budget range. the Goodyear Eagle Authority has a tread pattern that almost identical with a few exceptions to the DWS.
Maybe next time if I'm not satisfied with the current tires??
