I've got Michelin Hydroedge on atm;
Decent in snow, pretty good in rain. There was a pretty big storm last week and had no problems getting to my destination. Kept good traction despite the downpour and puddles. As long as you rotate them when needed, they'll last a good while. I plan on switching though, run summer tires for my newly acquired Charger wheels, and switch from all season to winter tires for my chrome crusaders.

I have BFGoodrich Traction TAs on my Concorde and I think they are great. Noticed a huge improvement when I upgraded from some cheapies to these. They are really good for snow and all around. They made the car handle much better.

I'm running 225/55/17 Cooper CS4's on my LHS at the recommendation of a lot of people here. They handle VERY well, are quiet, and are more of a luxury comfort ride tire than a sport tire.

On the Intrepid, 255/35/20 BF Goodrich KDW's.......f'in amazing, but they ride rough and are noisy :p

I attempted last year to save a few bucks and bought a used set of Summimotos-I know why the previous owner changed them LOL!!

Previously I swore by Toyo Proxies TPT but they have been replaced by Extensa's which are out of my current price range for a car with 700,000+ miles.

Ended up with Milestar MS932 (Nanking) which after about 7,000 miles I am pretty happy.
225/55/17 V rating with 101 load range. All season tire, heavily siped for rain/prevent hydroplaning M&S rated also. Quiet riding, been into 2-3 inch rain fall and feel pretty tight. Kind of surprised I like them.

Running who knows what on the front, but Firestone FR380 in the rear... Time to replace the fronts now, and I don't know if I want to buy more FR380s, or if I want to buy four new shoes all the way around and go with some upgrade... I think my local options will dictate what I do...

i've spent countless hours on tirerack searching for a good tire that won't break the bank, best thing i've found is the Yokohama Avid TRZ. between surveys and tirerack's testing they have the best performance and mileage for the money.

*wet traction is a huge deal for me, nothing sucks worse than sliding around in the rain.

I agree that buying tires is always a tough call. You mention the Avid TRZ. Is there any reason you passed over the Hankook H727? Maybe they don't come in the right size for the Intrepid. From this ranking, the H727s are #1, and the TRZs are #4.

http://www.tirerack.com/tires/survey...ay.jsp?type=ST

I just picked up a set of these from Discount Tire for my 300M, and there is a $50 rebate through the end of November. Here's the link:

http://www.discounttiredirect.com/di...w=false&cs=225

At the time I bought them, the price was $118. It's gone up in the last few weeks!?!

The other one to consider is the #5 tire - Kumho KR21. I have had two of these on the Intrepid for quite a while, and I liked them so much, I picked up two more. They seem to be wearing very well! I would have bought them for the 300M, but they don't come in the 17" size.

Good luck!

i currently have traction t/a's on the 17's and before that i had kr21's on 16's. loved the traction out of the kuhmo's but they barely lasted 33k miles, not impressed.

i looked hard at the h727's but from tireracks testing they indicated they were less than desirable in the wet, like i said im a stickler for wet traction. their testing is really the only reason im deciding to go with the yoko's instead. between the survey and testing they seem to be the right choice for me.
