Coming home from Six Flags with a group of kids, I got a flat on the front wheel. It must have slowly deflated because it gradually began to register with me that something was going wrong besides cross winds and grooves in the pavement.
They have 55,000 miles, I want safety in the rain, time for new. So I go to Costco.com, specify my tire size, and 12 models of Michelins come up. All 12 are all-season. Fine. They have names like Defender, Latitude, X Tour, and Primacy. Prices are not much different, from $200/tire to $170. Now what? Warranties from 55,000 to 80,000. Does longer wear mean less grip?
I go to America's Tire. They have 12 brands from Firestone, Goodyear, Perelli, to ones I've never heard of, with prices from $70 to $200.
So... What's the best way to figure this out? I don't drive in snow with this car.
