i posted a few weeks ago about my fairly new tires making a lot of road noise and being cupped after i got them rotated, and only 18k miles-well the noise kind of went away but the left front started to wear real bad on the outside, the right one wore on the inside so i got an alignment. car drives straighter, but im just gonna get new tires tomorrow, what kind should i get? size 215/60/15 by the way. i think the cupping was originally caused by the back suspension so im gonna have them look at all of that too. last time i was there, they were gonna put on either BF Goodrich Comp T/A's or Yokohama's, i think that were around$60/tire. i want somethin thats gonna have good traction and a smooth ride- oh and i have Dunlop SP Sport A2's on now-they were real nice when i FIRST got them :nono: $#*! suspension!

I bought my car with Yokohama tires on it. I love them. All around great tires.

My car needs an alignment also :(

they arent that great of a performing tire. Wet traction sucks, Dry traction is acceptable but not that good.

Treadwear is horrable.

yeah the falkens were nice, i liked 'em but they said the wet traction wasnt as good as a lot of other brands, i got Michelin Agility's- their wicked nice, its so much better ride quality, steering and less noise than the last ones
