Default Tires on an 01 TL?

I have a 2001 3.2 TL with 78k miles and its time for new tires. I have 3 original stock (Michelin) and 1 newish (Michelin) with about 20k miles on it. I cut the wall of the original tire on a sewer grate and had to have it replaced. The original 3 are about done, though, and I think its best to replace all 4 at the same time.So what is the best tire for an 01TL size 215/60/16? If I replace them with Michelins I believe it will cost about $700 (pricing from Costco.com, samsclub.com, sears.com)! I was hoping to find a good tire that would be closer to $500 for a set of 4. But at the same time I don't want to sacrifice safety or road noise by doing so. Any of you owners out there have a different brand of tires that you have been satisfied with that has cost less than $700? Yokohamas? BF Goodrich? others? Thanks.

I buy a lot of tires and the ones that I really love are Toyo tires. They are pricey (I paid $200 each for same tire size as you, but it included nitrogen/ lifetime rotation, etc.) I also have Kumho Esta ASX tires, and they are great for the price (paid $108 a tire for 225/40/18). I suggest checking out http://www.tirerack.com/index.jsp, because they have very good prices, and you might be able to afford new Michelins! Good Luck!

Michelins are one of the top of the line brand of tires. But they’re different types of Michelins to get. 2 good types are the Michelin Pilot Exalto or the Primacy MXV4. The car asks for a V rated tire but you can go 1 step down to an H rated tire. Another good brand is Bridgestone, preferably a Potenza (from Sears the HP50 is in the Potenza line) or Touranza. Kumho (pronounced koomo) is a very good inexpensive tire but the usually don’t long mileage warranty. Falken is another good inexpensive brand that is rated highly from consumer reports that is a little more expensive than the Kumho but has a longer warranty, but some customers have mixed results with them. I hope this helps.
