I am looking to buy 4 new tires for my 2005 chrysler 300c, and would like to know my best option.I want the best recommended tires that will give me good handling,a smooth ride,long lasting tread wear,etc.I live in miami,fl. so I dont get any snow.My car has goodyear assurance tires and I only have 1 tire left that has good tread left.Any body know a good place that has good prices?If anybody can assist me,I'd appreciate it.
There are a couple of other posts of this question on the forum I think in the tire thread... but I have an 06 C with stock 18' and live on LI with most weather conditions (its grey and rainy today) but I went with 245/50R18 100V Yokohama Advan S4 and IMO they are hands down the best ones and handle curves better with a little more pep of the line and came recommended and fitted by my dealership. A little pricey for some but you can find a wholesaler I presume you'd get a better deal on the tires and fitting as well.
I had a 05 C back home (looking at your pic, it was the excat color as well) and had Conti's on it (worst ones). The goodyears came with my 06 and I went through a few with some spirited driving, they were decent tires and Michellins (pardon my spelling) are good as well.
I have the Michelin's Primacy's and very satisfied with them. Have 18k on them and they still look new and ride and handle nice. Rotate them every 6k and so far there is zero vibration from them. Cooper and Goodyears have also been reported as good tires on the 300.
I replaced my 19K Goodyear Assurance Comfortreds with Michelin's Primacys because of a hopping problem. Goodyear gave me a full drive-ability credit of $130 each that was quite unexpected. Thank you Goodyear! I used that credit at Discount Tire for the $160 Primacys and am very satisfied with them to say the least. They are noticeably quieter, have a smoother ride, and a little less lean when cornering. One of the best tires that I have owned....
I just bought a set of Bridgestone Potenza G 019 Grid tires; very nice. I have these on my 2000 Intrepid ES as well (the kids drive it now). I've been using Bridgestone Potenza tires for years and have zero complaints. These are much quieter and have better traction than the Assurance Comfortred's that I replaced. Give them some consideration.
General, Yokohama, Goodyear, Michellin, Cooper, Dunlop, Bridgestone... I'm more confused now than when I started looking.
I'm in the same boat, hitman. Need some tires for my stock '06 C wheels. I plan to upgrade the wheels way down the road, so I don't want to spend an arm and leg on these tires that will eventually be replaced. But at the same time, I still want to have some fun with them before the upgrade, so I don't want cheapos.
I'm looking for middle class performance tires to hold me over. And have absolutely no idea what to get.
