I personally think they both would be a bit overkill, but still they have a nice tread pattern. Kumho Ecstas would be cheaper. I sent you a PM, and I bought 4 205-45-17 Ecstas for $60 per tire. They are not loud, and handle really well.

but how are they in the wet? being they're short fat tires w/ very little weight (car wise), they are more prone to hydroplaning....

since the wife drives that car more often safety is a bigger concern.

look at the traction rating on the sidewall of tires. That is the ability of the tire to stop in wet conditions in a straight line. These do very well in wet or dry conditions. Check out this like for more info.

i'm gonna bet they're A rated. it's kinda like saying a helmet is DOT rated.......they all passed a certain test, but some are still better then others.

having sold ALOT of tires in a past job, i'm picky when it comes to tires.

IMO, they are not worth the $.........i run michelin bike tires, been to the michelin plant, like their reg. street tires. but their hi-po tires don't impress me, for wet traction at least.

generally i like yoko tires for good tires that are well priced. A509 were the chit.

I'm a yoko girl myself---speaking of tires, I actually got a mad bubble in my OEM tire for the 2nd time on this car (not the same tire though)
It sucks, but this means another 170 bucks for an oem tire.
I'm gonna buy a whole new set of yoko's when I get the dough...but for now, I'll just work a few hours overtime, and make it up to have a replaement oem tire for a little while longer.
I drive so much I don't want to risk having a tire blow on me (20K in 7 months)

why go so exp. (OEM) replace 2 at a time, and you'll be fine


as for the "bubble" it's actually called an impact break. if you look at the inside of the tire you'll see an area where it pinched the tire, but it wasn't enough to break the outside layer of rubber. its caused by not enough air in the tires or a very sharp impact, pinching the tire. these new super low-pro tires are also alot more prone becuase they have very little sidewall height.

run more air pressure, and watch the roads your on.

I got some Yokohama AVS ES100

They are good. good in wet and in dry. They are quite sticky, and the wear is good as well.

You need to "bling-out" your wagon man. Don't you know? The 'Wagon' is the new Van!
