Cheap off brand tires last about 20-30k miles. Good Decent name brand tires last 60-70k miles but don't cost twice as much usually just 20 to 30% more. So where is the Value in buying Cheap ass tires?

I had two Firestone tires bust a cord on me. They later had a massive recall on them.

Michelin all the way. Best wearing and toughest tires I've ever owned. I put a set on my silverado 80k ago and I drive it like a race car and they just passed inspection again! Station said I would need new tires before next inspection the last 3 times but they still keep passing. This time I think they are right so I called local dealer and he laughed when I told him the tires I have because as he said we haven't had that model tire here for years! They do make the same tire under a different newer model name and it gets rave reviews. I'm also surprised at the end of their life now how well they still handle in the snow.

Tires that were made poorly are crap - no matter the country of manufacture or price. Innexpensive/off brand tires aren't always made poorly. Ive mounted, balanced, and driven on plenty of innexpensive "off brand" tires that hold up the exact same as name brand and are 1/3 the price. Learn what to look for in a tire before you buy - be an educated shopper and avoid buying poorly made tires (no matter the brand).

djbmw1 awesome advice.. Please share some good off brand tires to keep an eye out for... We used to sell a lot of blacklion tires when I worked at STS they seemed like a good off brand tire, never had any complaints. But I have no idea how they hold up over time.

Could use some expert advice. For my most recent tire purchase 6 months ago I stepped down in price a bit and went with General Alimax RT43's So far I've been pleased with the performance, but would love to hear the opinion of an expert. Not only on the tires but also these are the first set of non-directional tires I've had. I usually rotate front to back every oil change. I run Mobile 1 so 10,000 mile oil change intervals. Would there be any benefit (or need) to criss -cross them when rotating or am I ok to stick with front to back rotation like I'm used to? I've had good luck with Yokohama Avid Envigors. They've probably been my favorite tire as far as performance and tread life, but their price has gone up quite a bit lately. GoodYear Eagle GT performed well but the tread life was kinda so-so. The Pireli Cinturanto were kind of so-so as far as performance but I did get the rated long tread life out of them.

Michelin LTX on my '02 4Runner since bought new. 210k miles. 3rd set is at half-tread. Also like Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric 2 for sport coupe. I cringe at the tire-shop when I see people go for crap tires to save $10. You can notice even the shop employees making efforts to steer ppl away from garbage when it's fairly close on price.

One thing I noticed with Michelin is that sometimes you get dry rott prematurely.

Been running Continental tyres on the work van, used to run Michelin but had loads go out of shape so stopped buying them.

Michelins only on my stuff. That Douglas is a death sentence.

Used to be Michelin users, but Michelins don't hold up to to UV radiation. Their sidewalls crack after a short amount of time (we're talking months). Switched to BF Goodrich on all our vehicles, and I haven't looked back. We specifically use BFGoodrich Advantage T/As on our family vehicles. Great in rain, and good durability over time. Horror story on brand new factory Goodyears: Bought a 2003 Mustang GT brand new. Two days after buying the car, I ended up hydroplaning over two lanes on a freeway going under the speed limit. The next day I bought BFGoodrich KDWs, and never had that problem again.

3 sets of them, not one had cracking

That is bullshit, I live in NC and had Michelins on my Challenger, I ran them for about 38,000 miles about 2 years, then used the tread life warranty to get a new set at a discount. No cracks on the sidewall. You need to stop putting silicone based tire dressings on your tires. That is a strict No-No by any manufacturer.

ReclusiveMountainMan good years don't seem to be a crowd favorite... Lol.. But I would imagine they are better than Douglas tires.. Bfg tires are awesome.

People around here cry enough about how much new tires cost when even getting the cheap chinese brands. They are happy as long as they are new. Tires are very important and people don't get that.
Jursaw (1 year ago)
Auto Fix Pal Exactly, They usually ask for goodyear tires (from all the commercials) and then they get scared by the price and get the cheapy ones. Also, some people just don't have money for that.

Jursaw yeah some folks don't understand. You don't have to go Michelin. You can do anything decent. Just atleast a major brand.
