Default REQ: Replacement Tires 2005 TL

Hi all,

The original HX MXM4 Michlins, size P235/45 R17 are near end of life.
I have no complaints about them, having lasted nearly 50K miles with
no issues. But, with Fall approaching, I'm trying to get some idea of
what might be good replacements, as these OEM tires seem awful
expensive.

I live in the Washington, DC area, have relatively light snow/ice
exposure and am retired now. The car does mostly local driving with
some runs on the Interstates for vacations in the summer and visiting
relatives. I prefer an all weather treat for the few occasions when a
summer tread just isn't going to give adequate traction. I'm not an
aggressive driver (any more), having given that up when the Porsches
went and family life began. LOL

So, anyone a tire they like/recommend given the above?

Got a tire you recommend I stay away from?

TIA, Paul

Same car. Last year I put on Goodyear Eagle F1 All Season. They are a
relatively new model with a computer designed tread to disperse water,
while still being a sport tire. Best all around tire I've ever had. Not a
hint of slipping in the rain (sorry, no snow or ice here in SoCal but I
hear the are great there as well.) Great in the good weather as well.
They are not cheap, but probably less than the OEM and MUCH better. Worth
it I think.

You may want to browse
www.tirerack.com

you don't have to buy tires from them to use their ratings; especially
the customer-based survey. be sure to read the user comments before
making your decision.

Your OEM tires are rated badly by Tire Rack consumers. For moderately
priced tires, consumers rate the Continental ContiExtremeContact,
Yohohama AVID W4S and Bridgestone Potenza G019 Grid well and these
cost from $109 to $122 each. I live in Laurel, MD and have the Yokos
on my daughter's Accord and an earlier version of the Bridgestones on
our Accord. Both do OK during the winter and are fine in the wet.

You may be able to get away with less expensive tires if you chat with
one of the Tire Rack reps about going with something taller than the
fairly low profile 45 series tires on your car. A speed rating of at
least "H" (130 mph) or "V" (149 mph) is fine your car. There's no
sense spending all that money for a "W" (168 mph) speed rating for a
TL. Ensure the load rating is at least as high as OEM. Note: local
tire stores may be reluctant or unwilling to sell you anything less
than "W" rated tires as those are what came on it. (My Acura Legend
came with "V" rated tires; I've run nothing higher than "H" rated for
many years.)
