    Hi All,

    I was wondering what people recommend for a good quality all
    season tire to replace the OEMs on my sister's 99 Elantra. She has
    about 52,000 miles with the current MXV4s. I had a look at tire rack
    and 2 that I saw were Bridgestone Potenza RE910 and Yokohama Avid T4.
    Any thoughts/suggestions would be appreciated.

    We decided on the Bridgestone Turanza LS-H a highly rated tire and IMO,
    definitely a major improvement over the MXV4s. Quieter, stickier and way
    better in the rain. Don't know how they will do in snow as we haven't
    had any since we put then on over a year ago. The ratings suggest that
    they will do the job.

    There are other tires out there as well that I'm sure will out perform
    MXV4s for a lot less money

  4. Just bought a set of Avid Touring 185/70R13 for my son's car.
    80k mile warranty. Excellent traction and handling.
    Check out this website for your local dealer..
    Got them for about $50 per tire, mounted,,etc plus Road hazard
    from a TireRack dealer.

    Yeah, the Yokohama AVID series of tires is great. If they come in
    your size, you really can't beat the AVID H4s/V4s (not the H4/V4).
    They're brand new. The AVID H4s/V4s carries a UTQG rating of 500/AA/A
    and is available in H - and V- speed ratings. They're what I'm
    planning on installing on my 03 Sonata LX (205/60-R16) next summer
    after these crappy OEM MXV4+ tires wear out.
