Default Need New Tires, any suggestions?? Need them ASAP

My Tires are bad, I'm sure they're the original ones anyways. Car has 41K on it anyways.


Not sure what I should get. I put bigger tires on my older car and it handles much better then before. I wouldn't mind going bigger on the Cruiser, but I'm not sure what the limit is, and I'm afraid I'll mess up the Speedo-Reading.


It's just a Daily Driver, but I want to do this right.

My vote is Michelin hydro-edge. Good life, excellent rain performance, cheaper than the Good-for-a-years.
Don't have them in size for turbo...[?]

I have the 01 16inch wheels by the way. Do the Hydro-Edges hold the road better in dry weather too?? Also, whats the Maximun size I can go up too??



:EDIT: I did a search on here, and after soem googling with the information from here, I think I might get these in 225/60/16. Anybody know anything about these tires??

Yeah, I read most of the reviews, and only one person mentioned a short-life... How short are we talking here?? I need to do some googling.

I think that 225/50 16 is the right size for a PT.

I think I'm going to get the Fuzion Tires. It doesn't snow here (A few days a year if we're lucky) and I use to drive a semi-suicidal car in tne rain that liked to fishtail without even trying, so I think I can handle my anemic FWD car in the wet without special tires.

Just waiting for a call back.
