I want to buy new tires, but My dad wants to get michelins, which seem to better rated on the tires sites, but i just wanted to know what tires would be best on the tiburon for all season...need good snow traction for winter.
I've seen all the topics...just wanted a fresh view on the topic so I can convince my dad to get other tires.
Michelins also cost a lot...<img src=/images/forums/snitz/guns.gif width=33 height=16 border=0>
Any suggestions?

The new Uniroyal Rainsport is very good.Also bridgestone S03 PP is very good,but nothing maan is like the Michelin´s Pilot Sport.You can also purchase the michelin pilot sport A/S,which is better for winter tire.A cheaper and good solution is the michelin pilot Exalto.

I agree, the Michellin's that come on the car (Pilot XGT V4's) suck.
I replaced mine with Kumho Ecsta Supra 712's (half the price) and they grip far better on dry pavement and wet surfaces. The only draw back is they are a softer tire and don't last as long, but they are definitely better and cheaper.

<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0>A good place to start is realising that tyres are designed to perform in specific conditions, wet weather tyres will grip well in the rain(not much fun unless it's an event), snow tyres grip good in the white stuff, using the above tyres in dry and hot conditions will push them past their optimum operating temperature and literally wear them out so fast your wallet will scream bloody murder, you know how it goes...

The trick is to identify how you drive the car and where, and basically what you want to do with it, and make your choice from there. I'm far away from you, so I cant tell you about what tyre you should be using; heat ranges between night and day, humidity levels all contribute to tyre performance and take away from it as well.

Once you know what you want to do with your car and how you drive it ...you're closer than most ppl who look for a "hot" setup and go with that...victims of a marketing scam...lol

Good luck bro!
