    I know what i want for my truck, but i don't for my car!! I have a mitsibishi eclipse (i know, i know, but 32mpg!) and i need new tires before the snow hits the ground. It's been a while since i bought tires for a car, so what tires have you all had good expereience with?? I want a decent all weather tire that "performs" well on dry pavement. I was thinking of these blizzak...but i'm curious what everyone else thinks!! Thanks all!

    My best friend is a asst manager at a local Firestone store. The Blizzak are great winter tires, but are not really a summer tire. I have the Bridgestone Potenza G 009 and like them very much. Take a look at the Bridgestone Potenza G 009 before you buy.

    1 snow season possible 2 if lucky on blizzys. if snow is for you then get a tire with lots of siping and some channeling groves to move the slush and rain away.


    and on the side wall look at the treadwear 3 the higher the better the wear and harder the rubber. the lower the 3 the softer the rubber for more stick and less wear. then temp rating you want to look at the temp specs . as some are for hot temps and others for cold temps.

    hope this helps ya.

    I've always liked Michelins myself.
