04 Lesabre - Tire selection questions
I have a delightful 2004 LeSabre Limited with 67K miles, and it is very close to time to put new tires on her....need a set of 225/60R16
I have been reasonably satisifed with the stock Michelin Symmetry tires that came with the car, but I am open to other options. My Buick gets around 24-26MPG, and I'd like to stay there with a comfy ride.
I have read excellent reports on the Michelin Radial X, available at Costco and Sam's Club, and also on the Yokohama AVID TRZ, though its a tad harder to find locally. It seems all of those would be good choices. Are there any preferences among LeSabre owners out there among those?
I've also been encouraged to consider moving up from a T-series tire to an H-rated tire, but my understanding is that the better performance from that tire might result in a trade-off of reduced fuel performance.
I'm basically a commuter driver, on the highway about 30 miles a day to/from work, with the occasional road trip...the long-haul trips are now the mission of my wife's Sienna We have typically very warm summers here in Oklahoma, maybe one or two rounds of ice and/or snow in the winter, so that's a snapshot of the kind of tasking the tire will need to support.
Thanks for your feedback!
