Hi Joe and All.

I am researching which tire to get to replace the originals on a 2005 Legacy Limited sedan that I am in the process of purchasing. Tirerack.com and Consumersearch.com have been helpful sites.

The investigation, so far, suggests that either of the following two all-season tires would be an excellent consideration:

Yokohama AVID TRZ ("Standard Touring All Season", 89T SL, ~$500)

Goodyear Assurance TripleTred ("Passenger All Season", 89H SL, ~$650).

I am a moderate/prudent, Minnesota based, short distance, urban driver. I like to feel that my vehicle is under control and I also enjoy quiet and comfort.

Any thoughts, or other suggestions? Buying tires is sure more challenging than getting a new pair of shoes...


Thanks,

Rupe

Hi All.

After getting very pissed off at one Tires Plus location due to someone outright lying to me, I was very pleased to get evidently thoughtful and knowledgeable advice at a second Tires Plus location.

I will go with Bridgestone Potenza G009, High Performance, All-Season, H speed rated, tires. These are very highly rated by TireRack.com, a bit less than Goodyear Assurance TripleTred, and (importantly), can be returned within 30 days for a full refund/exchange if they don't satisfy.
