Default Tire recommendations????

Well I live in saint Louis.....and we experience all different kinds of weather. Like Sundays high is 76 with a low of 40 and Monday the high is 40 with them falling all day to the mid 20's....anyways.....what's a good year round tire for my 08 nox LT. I got it back in august....and it will need some new tires come spring.

I would probably recommend the Goodyear Assurance Comfortred Touring. Great all around tire for fuel mileage, all season and high mileage rating of 80kmiles.

My Equinox came with more fuel saver Michelin tires. I got 80k out of them and I would have gotten more if one tire didn'g have a unpatchable hole in them. They did seem to dry rot a little on the tread and I wouldn't call them a all season tire either.

Thanks!!! Ya I will look into those. I had some really nice yokos on my previous car (2010 Sebring) that did really well in the snow. And they make the same ones for this vehicle....just looking for opinions.

These are the yokos that I had.

My Nox came with the Michelin Latitude Tour All Season. Not impressed with these tires in the snow. It may be a different story if i would have purchased AWD. They are pretty quite which is very nice but i wouldn't mind something that would perform a little better in the snow.

I had Yokohama Avid's on my previous G6 and i had no issues getting around in the snow.

I've heard good things about the BFGoodrich Long Trail's. Actually that's my target tires to replace my current Michelin Latitude's.

I suggest to get Michelin Latitude sports. Not that cheap but very impressive in any wet or dry surface. Got mine online at 4wheelonline, they shipped it for free.

I live in Indiana and know youre pain when I comes to weather! haha I just bought a set of yokohama all seasons and I love them, great in the snow and quiet as can be on the dry roads. Don't know the mileage of them but so far no complaints!
