Trying to figure out a quality tire that offers very good traction and good wear. For my daughter 19 yrs. Bought TOYO Spectrum p195/65R15 89T BL tires rated for 65k miles and at 37,600 miles later I need replace the tires. Wondering if the Pirelli P4 Four Seasons are good tire for this car. Should I go up in size to get better traction?

195/65/15 is the recommended size for this car, pirelli's are good. Toyo's aren't ideal. Other good tires are Firestone, Goodyear, Bridgestone, Yokohama for this car in the size 195/65/15.

Hey man.
I'm lazy so I'm not going to look for your tire size. I'm 17 and I'm just a regular driver. It should be located at the door of the driver side, along with recommended tire pressures. I have 205/65r15 92H on my sides. Toyota Camry 2000.

I replaced my tires yesterday 8/3/10. A day before that my 4 almost dead tires had one blown up after a 60 miles trip after a 700miles one. So I replaced them all.

All I can say is BRAND is Crap. I researched a lot before and before I buy tire, and sometimes even different models can have huge differences in ratings. I had a Sumitomo HTR A/S P01. It's a good reputated tire also I had it dealed in local Big O Tire for 385 bucks. But usually it shouldnt cost more than 450 for everything, plus installation & tax and. A package.

Here is some models I found that is good, they're all from TireRack. Com, and you can research more there too. CHECK TEST RESULTS + REVIEWS + SURVEY. Let me know if you have further Qs. P4 four seasons is a good model but I think my sumitomo is cheaper and better. Lots of ex-michelin users said that.

My Sumitomo HTR A/S P01
Goodyear Eagle GT
Firestone precision touring, FR710
Hankook Optimo H727, 727!
Yokohama Avid TRZ, Avid EnVigor

last word, just don't get fooled with Bridgestones, Michelins, Goodyear & Dunlops and whatevers, you pay tires for 40 bucks and brand price for rest. Fuzion is too loud, General Tire has horrible tread life.
