Default This isn't about rangers, but I need advice.

I have to get two new tires on my aveo. The three I have are lexington, and the newest one I got is mastercraft brand. What brand would you suggest to get? My aveo is front wheel drive, auto. What brands are worth getting and which ones suck?

Try tirerack.com do the research. Once you find a tire shop it with local dealers also and go for the best price.

I had goodyear allegras on my 1992 accord, an all season tire that i could have as a low profile on it, or just as a normal tire on Emilie's Beetle, works great in the snow, ice and rain, but they excel on the warmest days (obvious I know) but you will see a difference. I don't know if you should invest on a tire as expensive as this. I have no idea how long you plan to keep the Aveo. (Just buy a Ranger and you can get 4 BFG AT and people on this forum will smile with you

Try to find something with at least a 60,000 mile warrenty, even if it is an off brand. Keep the papers and if they wear out you get a new set.
