Re: need new tires for 2001 Honda Civic EX

also, budget?

And driving conditions, I guess I should've been a bit more specific. All season, summer performance, live in a particularly wet location *coughcoughPNWcoughcough*, etc?

Re: need new tires for 2001 Honda Civic EX

2001 Civic EX stock tire size is 185/65/R15

Most places charge more for higher mileage rated tires (60k miles or more). However, even with regulary scheduled rotations, balancing and alignments tires usually do not last past 50k miles. Another thing to consider is installation fees and optional warranty: mounting, balanced, valve stems, road hazard warranty, disposal fee (old tires), and state fees on new tires.

Buying on line can possibly be cheaper than a local tire shops when comparison pricing. However, you have to keep in mind taxes, shipping fees and installation fees as mentioned above. When you call local shops they generally give an out-the-door price (tires, intallation, disposal and sometimes warranty). make sure you have them break down the cost of each and especially the base price of the tire.

There's a shitload of brands to choose from and so you'll probably want to research and read a lot of reviews. Here's a link to things to consider when purchasing tires: http://www.consumerreports.org/cro/tires/buying-guide

Here's a few mid-grade (brands) tires that I've used. They generally are not the least or most expensive, typically have good reviews, and have been in business for at least 10 years:

Nexen. Falken. Nitto. Kumho. Toyo.

If you've been happy with the tires that are on the car, get more of the same?

Re: need new tires for 2001 Honda Civic EX

FWIW, I just replaced 5 tires on my '04 Civic, I put Goodyear Assurance 195/70R14s on and they smoothed out the ride and eliminated a great deal of the noises associated with spooling up to speed on the highway. The tires clear all the wheel wells nicely and are a super smooth and quiet ride. Sam's club currently has an $80 off deal, basically you buy 3 tires and the 4th one is free, or almost so. I was out the door with 4 brand new tires installed with road hazard warranty and everything for less than $400.

Re: need new tires for 2001 Honda Civic EX

I had a front falken develop bulged treads (broken steel belts) so I replaced both fronts with cheap douglas tires from walmart. 10k miles later it happened to a rear falken so I replaced both rears with the same douglas tires (rotating new tires to front though) They're just as quiet and have been perfectly fine for about 15k miles now.

My goodyears did it on a different car as well. I'm developing the mindset that "if it's not a very high grade/price tire, it's probably just as prone to failure as the cheapies"
