Just focusing on the size - not on Pirelli versus Michelin, or four season versus performance - I think you would be happier with 185/70 or if you believe that "wider is better", 195/65. Larger diameter tires will look funny on a spider and may interfere with the rear wheel arches when carrying a load. Whether you will have interference depends on the width and offset of your wheels, the shape of your particular tire, how well centered your differential is, ....Would these tires be ok?Pirelli P4 Four Seasons PLUS - 195/70R14 90T.
Thanks, what is your thought about a lower priced tire in the $75 range. Sam's club has Goodyear Assurance All-Season - - 185/70R14 88T for $82 with $80 off for a set of 4
On the sidewall is a "wear rating". The higher the number the greater the expected mileage. A tire under 200 will have softer and sticky compound..great adhesion, poor mileage. 300 to 400 probably a good general purpose tire. 400+ harder compound, best mileage. If you do not drive in rain, snow ,etc why use a all season tire. Most driver tires now are unidirectional. Tires now are mostly made in Mexico, S. Korea, Japan. I currently have Goodyear Eagles on my GTV 205/60/15. Some body rub, but very responsive tire.Hi Jon,
What is meant by 400 range?
