Default Tire pick

I just had a blow out on rear tire last week. The rear I've only got 17,000 miles on the car. The Good Year tires were wearing out faster than normal anyway so I replaced both rear tires with BF Goodrich. I was surprised how much those cost even at WalMart $90 each with bal. I thought when I got ride of the Jeep tires would be cheaper these are just as much money and I had fair size tires on the jeep. Anyway quick question who makes the best tire that will get the most wear.? What can one expect to spend I'm looking to repace the front one so I have no trouble.[:I]

Are you looking to replace the front ones with a different brand? Not a good idea to mix brand tires. Not all brands are equal and different brand tires have different qualities. I'm using Toyo tires on my GT and love them.

Agree with mean green about mixing tires.
Tire loyalties are almost like religion.... But my opinion - Michelin Hydroedge are great - good tires, very long life.

Check Pirelli P zero Nero M+S. All ratings in the excellent category except snow traction according to Tire rack.

Put these up again your best tire and see whats better.

Personally, I don't think mixing brands is an issue as long as the speed ratings are the same, happens all the time in the tire business. We switched to Michelin Pilots on our GT and could not believe the difference in traction, launch, and overall smoothness and driveability.
