The original Goodyears on my 3.6 2004 CTS are about ready for replacement at 23,000 miles. I was very happy with the Yokohama Avids I had on my wife's Buick. They looked almost new after about 25,000 miles so I'm considering them for the CTS. I've heard the only tire that "looks right" on the car is the Goodyear. I want a quiet ride and performance capability as well. Anyone riding on Avids? Happy with some other brand? Appreciate any response.
