Tires for daily driver

Any suggestions for a stock 07 daily driver? 99% will be on road. And should I change the spare at the same time?

Re: Tires for daily driver

I have over 30k on a set of Yokohama Geolandar G015s. They are a mild AT tire. No hit on gas mileage; quiet for an AT tire. Have been good in the snow although I'm curious how they will do this winter with 40k miles on them. They are snow rated. Have been very good on my (not often enough) light off road and one medium off road experiences. I believe they are p metric so not for rough off roading.

I bought 5 tires and do a 5 wheel rotation.

Very happy with them for my needs.

Re: Tires for daily driver

All depend - what kind of seasons, conditions will you be driving in?

This will help giving you a decent recommendation vs just spitting out random tires.

After Monday and Tuesday even the calender says WTF

Re: Tires for daily driver

Add Cooper AT3 to the mix. Quiet, long lasting, not too heavy, cheap, awesome wet & dry performance, and excellent on dirt & sand.

Are looking for something that looks good? Performs well or a mix of both?
