Consumer Reports Tire Reviews

I take Consumer Reports with a grain of salt,
Yes, I know what you mean about a lot of their testing. I don't think their tire testing is too bad though. It seems fairly consistent with the qualitative on-line customer reviews, e.g. the Yokohamas and Hancooks as good values.

I had good luck with goodyear tripletracks a few years ago, and the current ones on the limited are Michelin hydroedges.

The tripletracks were on the front of the car and I am pretty sure I got 60K out of them.

Anyone running Yokohamas?? Im looking at a set of 255/45r18 Yokohama Avid Envigors for my new rims when I get them.. Any thoughts??
I have Avid TRZ's on our 300M and they are ABSOLUTELY the best tire that I have put on that car! Yes, I bought them from Discount Tire Direct too (third set of tires that I have bought from them... awesome service). When the Continentals on our new Intrepid are worn out I will be adding Yoko's to that one too.

I put Cooper CS4s on my 300m, and am very happy so far. They've been fine in the dry and the wet, and have a decent ride.

EDIT: I was considering the 225/60/16 Firestone Winterforce for $90 each at tirerack for winter:
At $90 a tire I wonder how they perform compared to the $150 Nokian Hakkapeliitta.
I had the Winterforce tires on my Trep and never had a problem, great tires.

I seen to think that my CS4 tires hydro-plane...only had then out once in the wet though...

Don't be fooled by name brands. Tires are tires. I have Pirelli's on my Intrepid (expensive) and Previously had Michelins (also expensive) and they both provide a regular ride. Nothing special at all. It only snows once or twice a year where I live so I don't need winter tires or any special type of tire. The only type of tire I can think is better than another is lower profile tires vs. a stock one. But there's pros and cons to that (ask an tire shop for specific info) Next time I'm just buying the most affordable tires, regardless of brand.

Not sure that I totally agree with this, but my recent experience supports it. I purchased Michelins for my wife's Jeep Grand Cherokee, and they are mostly shot after 25k miles. I thought Michelins would go twice that long. The prior set were no-name tires that were on it when we bought the car used. They lasted longer than this set of Michelins, but the ride was a bit better on the Michelins.

My 2001 3.2L Intrepid came with P255/60R16 tires on all 4 alloy wheels.

However, now having poked a big hole in one of them, I find that I can't obtain such tires anymore, even on special order.

At this point I just want to replace the one tire as the one on the other side is in pretty good shape. Any suggestions as to suitable replacement? Whether singly or in a pair. Thanks...
