time to replace all 4 tires & use a good one for a spare.
The car (99 ZX2) came with well worn Dayton HR’s ( who I hear you ask?) 205/55/R15s and have been ok.
The car had been sitting for some time and the side walls were cracking as the corners of the treads but hung on pretty well and wore reasonably slow though the fronts did scrub out a but fast … then again I am not easy on the car that much.
They have held out longer than a year so thats not bad …anyway.
Just wondering what you all think work well with the car as far as brand, type & sizes.
WHAT ARE YOU RUNNING NOW?
I am guessing that the speedo gear had not been changed though it may have been, might be best to do a speedo check anyway.
If not I guess thats why I have not been given speeding tickets. LOL.
The 205 is nice to have a slightly wider tire for a bit more grip and the 55 was nice for a better ride and handle though is a little firmer on the road.
I like it.
I need a tire that suits Florida, hot one day & rainy the next, so the tire has to be a good all rounder that will hold up well to the elements.
I do mainly short trips ( town ) on a daily basis but do the odd long distance drive ( 2hrs - 13hrs ).
Not really wanting something with too soft a compound though as I am not racing it ( most of the time anyway officer) so I would like the tires to last reasonably well.
I am not really wanting to spend a huge ammount on tires ( who is ) though always looking for a good deal if you guys know of any.
I am seriously thinking about getting away from performance tires and running passenger tires that gor for about $55 a tires VS $80 a tire.
With a 50,000mile warranty I figure why the hell not.
I can still get a tire thats 205/60 or 65 R15 and lets face it , I am not racing it for money or such, its just a daily driver.
Anyway , I look forward to your ever entertaining & informative replies.
