Default Car Tires. I need new ones. What do you have?

My Plymouth Breeze needs a new set. I drive to Eastern two times a week, and that is about 150 miles. So, I need something that will do okay in the lovely weather that we have.

Anything that you like? That you don't like? Not looking to bust the bank, but will pay for a good tire.

Thanks!

I just put some Kelly's on the 2006 Impala I drive. I will have to see the model, but they absolutely rock in the snow.

I put kuhmos on my Liberty earlier this winter and like them. This is the second SUV I put them on and I have been happy with the winter handling. Besides, they are a higher mileage tire and cheaper than the Goodyears that came stock.

Badger the sales guys on either pirellies or goodyears. There are huge markups on both.

You must be luckier than i, i had them on my cavalier, now on my malibu, and 2 different models, and they both sucked.

I got some "215/50ZR-17 BFGOODRICH G-FORCE SUPER SPORT A/S" for $94/ea from the tirerack. Seem to be good in the snow. Much quieter than the 18" Perellis it had before. And yes, I had to buy new wheels...
