Pirelli's have up to a 60,000 mile warranty, depending on the tire.

To make a good recommendation to you, first we need to know what is important to you, or not with a tire. In order, first to last, what is the most important aspect of a tire's performance for you?

1. Tread life.
2. Performance/handling/steering response.
3. Quiet ride.
4. Price.
5. Snow traction.
6. Rain traction/resistance to hydroplaning.
7. Appearance.
8. Quality/good reputation.

Do you have one or more local tire stores?

What size tire does you car take?

Nope, but I did, and am looking to get them again... They come in an all season radial and have good performance... not that bad of a tire for the money, i think they last like 60,000 miles if not more, that is how long they are warrantied for, no road noise that I could hear.

And that label, does have a lot of codes, lol

Check this website out, they have some good name brand tires and they have tires they some of us have probably never heard of, but they have some pretty good prices also. Oh when you first go to the website it will be in a different language, but if you look down on the left side of the screen you can change it to English.

How about tread life? You mention you want handling, but does this mean you want all out performance, sacrificing tread life, or do you want a little bit of both, both performance and long tread life? In other words, do you want class A handling, (which can be achieved with soft rubber compounds), or sacrifice some handling and get longer tread life? All out high performance tires can last as little as 10,000 - 15,000 miles.

Is rain performance/resisting hydroplaning important to you, or do you live in an dry area that doesn't get much rain?

Do you want a made in U.S.A. product, or foreign?

I run 225/40/18 Nitto neo-gen tires in the summer, and in the winter i run 205/55/15 Bridgstone Blizzaks. I think 16 inch rims are as small as you can go on the SS/SC and "some" 17's on the SS/TC

falken 452s for summers. as far as winters, they're semi over rated lol. i ran summers half last winter and had no problems and we have some pretty serious winters. if its so bad out your summers wont cut it, its probably not to safe to drive anyways. but thats just how i feel.

i running nankang NS1's right now. 215/45/17 actually pretty affordable. good grip on wet and dry pavement. there is a little bit of road noise, but can't really here it over the exhaust. i have about 8000 miles on them right now and basiclly no tread wear.
