    Favorite Tire Brand?

    JOCS and YOSC got me thinking about this from their Tire talk.

    I chose BFGoodrich....based on quite a bit of off road Jeeping in the past with organized clubs...they have proven to be popular, very rugged, and very long lasting. Their Radial TA KOs.

    Also for their street tires...I did love their HR rated Radial TAs. Not sure what a current model is..haven't had a sports car in a while.

    For a value brand...I do like Cooper.

    I just started running Goodyear Asurance Triple Treds, a little pricey but they handle great for a sporty car

    Not what I would use on a sporty car at all, but I have them on my Altima, they're great in the snow and rain.

    I voted Kumho. For my performance stuff I run them. They are not too expensive and are tacky and soft enough for good handling. Only downside to being so soft is they have shorter thread life. For touring tires either goodyear or BFG.

    MT's for sure. I had them on my '88 Wrangler. Could put out with no problem with mud up to the floor boards.

    For SUV always Michelin.
    For minivan, some all seasons no name brand, very cheap.
    For 69 mustang conv i dont even know, but i know they arent cheap.

    actually it depends... offroad-Micky Thompsons, SUV or comfort auto's-Michelin, Street sports-Pirelli or Yokohama.

    Nitto, seems to be popular with the fast/furious crowd.

    I dont see Listed Baja tires.
    They are as good as Michelin, same price and lifetime warranty.

    Michelin Pilot XGT H4, harsh ride over bumps but damn good in all weather. Falken ZIEX's are pretty good for the price but they have pretty soft sidewalls.

    Trojan brand.

    Extra thick and long lasting. Does very well in the corners and loves acceleration but really suck when it comes to stopping. However… I’ve never had a blow out.

    Baja T/A
    Driving's a battle. Choose your weapon.

    If you're serious about off-roading, The BFGoodrich Baja T/A is the tire of champions. It's the only professional-grade ultra-high-performance tire offered to the public, dominating off-road racing with an amazing winning consistency in the Baja 1000.

    Extremely aggressive tread pattern and TriGard Plus construction for serious durability.
