Default 2004 TL Tire recommendation

The tires (Bridgestone Turanza EL42) on 2004 TL are almost worn out.

What are the best replacement tires?
My driving is very mild and easy in the
San Fran bay area.

Thanks,
ram

Before you replace them, Acura announced a TSB (05-076)
on on Xmas eve for premature tire wear due to a
rear suspension issue. The TSB applies to all '04
and most '05 TLs that have EL-42s. You may want
to check with your dealer first before doing anything
just in case it applies to you. Besides getting some
bumper stops replaced and a free alignment, they're
also giving a prorated discount on replacement tires
based on the mileage up to 25K miles (after that there's
no discount).

How many miles do you have on the original tires? I have the same tires on
my '04 TL and might be changing them soon. I've done some research at
www.TireRack.com. You may want to look there as well. The consensus
recommendations were between a Pirelli & a Kumho? tire. I will probably go
with the Kumho tire. It was rated very well and is a good value.

Also try the TL forum at http://tl.acurazine.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=5

I have 26,000 miles on them and it looks like they may go
for another 3000 miles.

I did research on tirerack, but tried to find tires sold by
costco since I have positive experience with them.

I will look into the ones you mentioned as well.

Thanks,
ram
