    Tire recommendation needed

    Have to replace all four tires on my Camry. The Bridgestones that it came with were worthless. Any recommendations for a reasonable tire for Iowa weather?

    Re: Tire recommendation needed

    I would check the tire rack reviews specific to the Camry and then go buy them at Costco.

    Cool Re: Tire recommendation needed

    My friend (who owns a auto repair shop) talked me into Cooper tires about 10 years ago and I have no complaints since. Not sure on an exact model though, sorry.

    Cooper tires are the best tire for your money.

    Big O tires are made by Cooper now and are fairly inexpensive.

    Just be sure they have the same road hazzard and warranty.

    Re: Tire recommendation needed

    All these companies have both good and tires. I would worry less about brands and more into specific models.

    Re: Tire recommendation needed

    I replaced the poor Bridgestones tires on my Camry at 29,000....went with the Michelin - Pilot® Exalto® A/S at Costco. Good tire.

    Re: Tire recommendation needed

    I have a set of bf goodrich's on mine from sam's club work real good on snow/ice. When selecting tires around here for traction stick your nail into them and if the tire is soft they're a good traction tire if it seems hard they're more for mileage.

    Re: Tire recommendation needed

    No Costco in my area. Went to Sears - happy with the tires, very happy with the service (although I'm pretty sure someone else here won't recommend Sears, and that's fine - just saying my family and I have always had pretty good experiences with them).


    Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice?

    Re: Tire recommendation needed

    I have, and love, Firestone Transforce AT's...but that's for my pickups, so it's completely irrelevant.
