I bought a 2006 Forenza May 1,2006. I do not like the tires either. I have out 12,800 miles on my car as of today (I travel alot with my kids in games). And my tires are completely worn out. My tires too from the start have slipped and do very lousy in wet weather. Thanks for the info on the BFG's. I will be getting new tires on my car in a week.

Yeah, I replaced mine with Khumo 195/60/R15 with no problems. The car is smoother (taller tire), quiet, and has improved wet traction performance over the original hankooks. And the Khumo's were only $43 per tire from the tire rack.

I put the same 60 series Kumho tires on mine. They seem to be a decent improvement over stock at a bargain price. (My originals lasted 30K.) I just wish they weren't made in Communist China . . . too late now.

I bought a car less than a week ago within two days of owning it the back tire was looking a little low my husband denied it said things like I worry too much the next day it was undeniable even the lady next door was like you realize you got a flat tire right? So he took it to the dealership and they told him they couldn’t do anything it had a nail in it we would need to buy a new tire… when we bought the car they said it had brand new tiers isn’t there some sort of warranty or something we can do?

It is definitely possible for a nail to get in a tire in such a way that the tire can't be fixed. It's happened to me!!

this is the first run whith 215/60/R15 hankook to my forenza 2004 and it run smoother and feels more confortable. I think that the 60 tires goes better with the forenza. If anyone has had a good result with other tires please tell.

Careful with these bigger tires... you're adding almost an inch to the radius of the tire. Your speedo will be significantly off - when you show 65 you'll actually be going 70 mph!

I am leary about these tires. My son bought a 05 Forenza and it really seems to be a decent car (and here comes the but) BUT I am afraid of the tires. I don't know why, maybe its the name. I've never heard of these before he bought the car. He is going to be driving it to college in Pa in a couple of weeks so I was going to change the tires for him. The shop I go to sells Cooper tires. Are they a good tire or should I stick with the Goodyear tires that I have on my other cars? Price is a factor here but so is safety.
OH by the way...the avitar is not our car. As a matter of fact, I don't know where it came from it just showed up when previewing the post. If it is not there when submitted, disregard....
