I was considering getting these tires in P225/55R16 for my 2k SEL. Can anyone give me feedback on these and if they are worth getting or not?

Cant give ya any info on the brand you asked about. HOWEVER! If you would like to know what I recomend. Goodyear eagle GT HRs. Ride good, grip good,and look good to.

Yeah. I really like the BF Goodrich Traction T/A's, but trying to save cash.. The BFG T/A's rated really well in tirerack.com the Conti Extremes did too.

I work for Pep Boys, and the Ventus II Tires by Hankook are GREAT! I have Futura UltraZs on my car, but my next batch are going to be Ventus IIs for sure!

Thats exactly where I was today and the guy showed me those Ultra Z's as well: wicked looking tread on those. I just thought at a quality Z rated tire should be more then $69 a piece. :lol2:

Well...This tread can close out now. I bought the Hankook Ventus HRII P225/55R16's today.

I'll let everyone know if they suck or not in a couple weeks. B)

The Ultra Z tires are great. The reason they are so cheap is that they are discountinuing those. I have bought at least 5 sets of these over the years. The new Ventius tires that are supposed to replace the Ultra Z tires do not have the AA traction rating. SableSal do you have any other suggestions? I have already sent Pepboys an email, but they never responded. I like the fact that if I need a replacement tire I can go to any Pepboys and get a new one. I have bad luck with road hazzards as nails love me for some reason :rolleyes:

Also, how would I get Pepboys to put the stick on wheel weights inside the wheel instead of the kind that mess up the rims?

At Pepboys, you have to request that you get your wheels balanced with STICK ON WEIGHTS. If you dont mention it, they will use hammer-on weights. Also, have them check the other stores for those Tires. (UltraZs) I noticed that in Fresno, there is only ONE last Ultra Z Tire in stock. Thats out of 5 stores!! LOL When it comes time to replace them, Im going to go ahead and get the Ventus Tires.

bco1206, Take some pics of the wheels. I never seen a Taurus/Sable with a 55 Series Ventus Directional Tread on it before. Just curious on how mine are going to look when I do infact get them.
