I've been looking at tires for my Taurus, and I cant decide on what to replace the Conti's out with, what would be a decent tire? I noticed the Kumho 732's are at a good price are there any comparable tires?

I have replaced all 4 of my tires on my car since I bought it, still using Continentals, they were designed for the car and other than that they are a bit noisy, they otherwise are a decent tire.

Are you looking for allseason, or just summer tires?


For all seasons, I really like my Kumho Ecsta ASX tires. Excellent wet/dry traction, good snow traction, and good wear.

Mine had the continentals on it when bought it and I thought they sucked.

I been running BFG Traction T/A's and have been pretty happy.

My 94 came with Michelin XGV's and they were great tires.

kelly charger is an excellent tire for the value (~$70.00) it has an agressive tread pattern, and is excellent in rain and snow. 60k warranty.

Bridgestone Potenza G009's are the ones I got off of Tirerack.com

Great grip on dry pavement, AWESOME grip in the rain, hasn't snowed yet, I'll let ya know in a few months.

Goodyear Assurance Tripletreds!!! Best All-Season tire yet and read great reviews off tirerack.com. There not performance rated though, then again my car isn't for racing lol!

When I look into 17" one day i'm going for Kumhos, they seem to the cheapest but good lookin tires.
