    Need new all seasons for my daily gs, has 3g wheels on it for some reason. They came with the car. I think they ugly but whatever.

    Can anyone recommend some solid all season tires? Looking for something that is going to be worth my money and last but not trying to go all out.

    DO NOT BUY WESTLAKE TIRES.

    I bought these last year and they don't have traction worth sh** dry or wet. Can't climb hills without doing an accidental burnout when it's wet. Can't launch off the line with burning out at the track even when its dry and the tires are warm.

    You get what you pay for. It's the ONLY thing between you and the road. There is a reason OEM's choose Goodyear Michelin bridgetone etc

    I was trying to save a little $ because they have good reviews, but apparently those reviewers were either fake or senseless. Buy something name brand for sure.

    I might get these kumho 4x II. In another thread people were saying these were good tires. Obviously I'm not turbo awd or anything so top performance isnt my goal. I need a good daily set of tires that will grip well. I'm a safe driver as well, been in a lot of accidents so I've certainly learned from experience.

    Anyway, my tires are fubar at the moment :( but these kumho 4x II are like 330 for all four from discount tires.

    I've had several sets of Continental Extreme Contact DWS on my Eclipse over the years. I can second that recomendation.

    Thanks guys. I think I'm gonna pick up some continentals when I get the money. I was driving home last night in the rain and I just slowly started to hydroplane left at 60mph, like I said I've been in many wrecks. Needless to say my heart dropped... glad I got home safe though haha.

    I’ve heard pretty good things about the Federal 595r’s as far as price and driving. I wouldn’t put any ping pong tires on anything but beaters. The quality of rubber and construction makes them wear out early or have issues. Also when you get a set get an alignment. That will save you having them wear uneven and having to replace them.
