Youi guys got me so confused about what to get. i have Michelins that came on my vibe almost 3 years ago and I wish they were worn out so I could get something different as their traction is AWFUL and they brake loose so easy on wet or dry surfaces I have to be very timid with the gas pedal on startup so I don't squalk or screech as I have had the police follow me after one such incident lucky AI didnt get a ticket. Unfortunately these tires seem to be lasting a long time but I am getting to the point of wanting to ditch them with good tread still on them. I know what you thinking it is not a GT or a stick shift just a base 1.8L 1ZZFE. These tires just suck. I m also over 50 and not a aggressive or particularly fast driver.
I’m in the same boat as you with my 03 GT and 94 ranger. I have definitey hpe100s (might be hpe800) on the vibe. Terrible tire, but still have tons of tread left. Absolutely useless in the snow and not very good in the rain either. The goodyear wrangler radial I have on the ranger I hated since day one. Thin sidewall, don’t grip off road without a lot of wheel speed (I’m talking 2nd gear limiter wheel speed), and they’re Goodyear’s. And like any other goodyear, they dryrot and weather-check within the first year. They ride terribly too. I’ve seen them on line for 35 bucks a tire. Utter garbage. I’ve always hated them, but I was in high school and it was the only AT I could afford at the time. I’m about halfway through the tread now, and I’m a bit burnout happy, so I give em till the end of summer and they’ll be gone.
I’m looking at the 205/60r16 falken ziex ze950’s for the vibe and 31x10.50-15 mastercrafts courser MXT’s for the ranger.
