    We survived a year and around 12,000 miles with General G-Max AS-03's on the Forte - 215/45R17 91W XL. Honestly it has good points. Great wet or dry for an all season and decent impact harshness for an XL tire but DAMN the noise. It sounded like driving on 4 bad bearings. I had my bud at...
    It is always better to get a set of good winter tires in advance, until the cold did not catch you by surprise. If you live in a place with mild winters and don't really need serious winter tires, all-season tires will do the job. They are designed to work perfectly both in summer and winter...

    Hey everyone. I'm at my wits end and need some input. I have what sounds like a bad wheel bearing. It's so loud at freeway speeds it's unbelievable. It sounds exactly like I'm running truck (mud) tires, but I'm not. I have Yokohama S drives 225/45/17. They are about 75% worn. One day the noise...

    Hi, new to the board and it has been very helpful so far. I'm thinking of this combo for my stock 2003 GLS, reflex silver. What do you think and is the Tire Rack a good source? Thanks! 225/45HR17

    Anyone have experience with the Yokohama Advan S4 ? I need new tires and am torn between paying good money ($120ish) for a solid tire that TireRack surveys and tests and Consumer Reports agree on versus paying cheap money for something that*may* last and offer similar performance like a Falken...
