I need new tires for my Civic LX 96 - anybody here has any recommendations
for a brand and model that provide a quiet ride and good milage. I don't
care about performance (I almost never go above 75mi/h) and I live in
California, so bad weather is not an issue. BTW, the car has ABS, if that
makes any difference.
My current tires are Yokohama Avid Touring - I've had them for almost 4
years and around 30k miles (not sure about miles though), and the tread has
all but disappeared.
Me too, but "bad weather" can certainly include rain, and lots of it at
times. I had Michelin MX4 "rain force" tires on a corolla and just loved
them. incredibly sure-footed in the rain.
don't know about that Potenza in particular. My Civvie has the OEM RE92's,
which are criticized a lot. I find them to be quite satisfactory in the
rain. Just a tad noisy on dry pavement. Also note that the Potenzas (at
least mine) have been slammed for short wear, but I was getting my baby an
oil this change this morning and passed the time looking on the used car
lot. Found an identical '04 Cvic with the original tires, 45,000 miles, and
they appear almost like new.
You did good.
