You have a 2009 and are already needing new tires?

What kind of tires are you looking for... all-season?

A couple months ago I got a set of Cooper CS4 Touring and have been pretty happy with them. I bought them when the store was offering buy 3 get 1 free and Cooper was offering a $50 rebate.

IMO if you are just driving around you don't "need" to spend more than ~$120 a tire. I suggest some General Brand or similar all season tires for just driving around.

We can help better if you say your driving style and what you want in a tire.

Def search the board and try TireRack. There was some lengthy discussion here on DA about the Continental ExtremeContact DWS. I've had them for about 7,000 miles now and I love them. Great all around tire: grippy, quiet, comfortable (but firm) ride, and they do very well on the highway in the rain. I did get a chance to drive thru snow once and they were very sure footed. The only down side is that my fuel economy is down 1-2MPG, but for me that's a more than acceptable trade off for how well they perform over the factory Michelins, dry and wet.

Bought mine from Discount Tire. Check competitor prices because they will meet or beat them.Very happy with the ride and performance with the H rated version.

The Primacy is a very good all around tire, albeit pricey. I will be doing an update soon on its performance in snow. :yes:

Well since no one else responded: Cooper CS4 V/H rating(same tire)60k warranty. If you drop to a T speed rating the tire is now an 80k tire. My dad has had these on his 07 Camry for 20k and really likes them. Much more so than the oem Michelins. Made in the USA.

$400 installed after a $50 Visa rebate card for 16 inchers.

Thanks to everyone who responded...

I ended up purchasing from Kauffman Tire...

Cooper CS4 Touring
V Rated, 60k warranty
OTD with full replacement and $50 coupon for next service was $720

I bought them this past weekend and so far they are quieter than the Michelin MXM4 Plus, seem stickier in dry conditions.

I haven't driven it in the rain yet so don't know how it'll handle
Hope they last 60K or more...

Driving Style: Spirited, 75mph highway average

Thanks again!!
