Default Bridgestone Summer Tires

How are you guys liking the tires. I have the 18' 225/40 and 255/35 tire summer tire and I had some road noise during city driving, but they are a lot better on the highway. I don't think they're going to last two years in the Arizona heat with the treat wear of 160.

Have you all decided on what your next tire going to be? I'm reading the Michelin Sports make help tremendously. I also saw Nitto is making some good tires too.

For the side record, my dealership wanted $500 for the wheel/tire road hazard warranty. After reading all these unfortunate wheel incidences, I might reconsider it. I do want road hazard for the tires and Discount Tire has treated me well in the past.

Just beat the **** out of them! When the time comes replace them with Michelin Pilot Super Sport. Best tire i ever had.... and they last up to 30,000 miles. Good luck!!!

$500 pays for half a set of tires or buys a replacement rim. At that price I'll take the gamble as I have had few tire or wheel problems in the past so I figure I am ahead on that game.

I really liked the Continental Sport Contact 3 I had on my Audi. Very good traction, particularly in curves. A bit noisy because of the sports chassis though. CSC 5 is said to be quieter, but equally good grip.

I have heard of some success with Pirelli P-Zero Nero. Especially for All Season and longer tread life. Not sure about noise though.
