Tires on 2008 LT2?

Howdy, does anyone know which tires come with the 2008 Balt LT2 model? They are 16inchers but now they are using touring tires instead of the Pirelli P6 that came with the 2006 Balt.

Mine is a 2008 1LT, with 15-inch wheels, ABS and traction control.

It came with Continental Touring Contact AS all seasons, 195/60/15.

Hankook Rubber

Hey, I have an LT2 as well and it came with 16in wheels with 205/55/R16 Hankook rubber. They look great but I want to move up to an 18in wheel. One problem GM changed the bolt pattern to a 5x110 on all the balt line except for the LT1 and the LS. This really sucks becasue the 5x110 pattern is pretty rare and a pain in the ass to find nice looking wheels. Hope this helps.

Go To TireRack.com and type in your vehicle, it will bring up several pages specifically for your bolt pattern and tire size. Its only rare if you dont try searching for it.

My turbo lag is your courtesy head start.

Yeh, I saw those Hankooks on a new Balt I checked out. Mine came with the Pirelli P6. I just replaced them with Goodyear Comfortreds but the car still rides like ass.
I'm very dissapointed in how my car is holding up, I'm bringing it back to the dealer who suggested new tires as a cure for my ride and tell them it wasnt the tires-fix my suspension! No way the car should ride this bad on new tires.
By the way the Goodyears arent good for this car-going to trade them in for Michelin Primacy's.

My shop loves to sell the hankook tires, supposedly one of the up and coming good brands out there now. I have a set on my honda, only reason i dont have them on the balt, is because they dont come in low pro sizes

I've been to every site you can think of. Tirerack has nothing that really stands out in my mind. Like I said it's hard to find a nice wheel in a 18" 5x110 bolt pattern. I'm getting really frustrated, it's April now and I still have no summer shoes.

Tire rack has seven pages of wheels with a 5X110 pattern, almost ALL 18's. Im sure you can find some "shoes" you really like.
