New Tires

I have a Toyota Scion xA. It is a 2006 and just recently went over 40,000 miles. I now need new tires and wondered what tires would be best for year round travel? I’d also like to know what price range is considered reasonable?

Go to

http://www.tirerack.com

and enter either your car or your tire size.

There’s lots of good information at Tire Rack.

You don’t have to buy from them, but you can learn a LOT by checking out their test results, owner survey results, etc.

There are many different tires that will fit your car. Do some research before you buy.

I agree with the visit to Tirerack. 1010tires also has a good consumer feedback and rating section.

Personally, I’ve been supremely happy with the Hankooks I have on my tC. Tracking, road sound, and ride are excellent, wear is very good, and winter traction has been surprizingly good. I went through our last NH winter with absolutely no traction problems whatsoever.

But I’m only a sample of one.

Mountainbike,

Which Hankooks did you buy? I need new tires for my '97 Acura 2.2 CL (205/55 x 16). I’ve been researching at TireRack and other sites, and I’ve learned a lot, but I’d appreciate any information you’d care to share about your Hankooks.
