Hi. Any tire experts out there? My minivan is on year 4. Time to replace the tires it seems. (at least the 2 in the back I am told). I see good sales at Sears but have no idea if these are any good. Any thoughts? thanks!!

    I would check TireRack.com for consumer reviews. Take note of those from other members with minivans.

    Did you get a good deal? Be sure to come back and share!

    I recently got some Continentals for my '09 Grand Caravan based on a personal recommendation or two around here.

    They are the True Contacts. I was afraid they might be too stiff since they have a high treadwear count, but so far so good. It's early days but they seem fine. They were around $115 at Walmart for a 16" tire, so your 17s would run a bit more.

    When I lived in snow country, I ran Nokian WRG2s and really liked them. They were especially good in rain (nothing is going to really help a minivan much in snow). But they are pricey and can be hard to find.

  • I usually buy from Tire Rack. Why don't you consider replacing them with the same brand it served you well?
  • COSTCO is a great place to buy tires if you have one near you.

    I agree.. If they have the tire you want, you usually can't beat their price.

    If you have kids and a variable climate, might want to drop a few extra bucks on some Michelins. Generally good quality, wear and treads.
  • Tires are not something that you want to skimp on. Check reviews on brands that you like as well as what other van owners recommend.
