#207 of 283 2002 toyota camry se v6 215/60 R16 94v tire recommendations
Jul 29, 2009 (12:10 pm)
I currently have BF Goodrich Traction T/A 94V tires and need to replace the front tires. I can only find the Traction T/A tires in 94T. I am not tied to this brand, but need to get something that will work ok with the rear tires.
Can you put 94H or 94T on the front if you've got 94V on the rear?
I recently got laid off, but can't put off getting front tires any longer. Can you recommend a reasonably priced quality tire that I can use with the rear tires that I am keeping?
I currently live in NC where we only get snow a couple of times a year. My plan is to move to FL after this winter season. I mostly just drive on the streets and I think I just need a basic Grand Touring All-Season tire.
Unfortunately, I just found out I have to go to Florida right away and have to buy the tires tomorrow. Can anyone make a quick recommendation?
I've been looking at Tire Rack.com, but am a bit overwhelmed. If I can get something for under $100 each, that would be ideal.

Unless you intend to drive faster than 118MPH (the speed rating T), those would be more than adequate.
You'll be in Florida behind some old ladies, Your maximum practical speed will be 35!
If you shift brands and models, you want to keep the same tire on both right and left of the same axle, so the sidewall flex is the same. If you are pleased with your old tire performance and lifespan, I'd go get those T's tonight.

I have a 2007 Camry LE with 19,000 miles and already the tires seem to need replacing. I'm a bit pissed. The tires have been rotated regularly. Can some quiet road tires be recommended? There are some sales going on around here, buy 2 get 2 tires free with the following tires: Goodyear Integrity, 50,000 mile, Dunlop Signature, T 75,000,H 60,000mile, Falken ZE-502. I dont know if they even come in the size I need. They also have Michelin mxv4 primacy, approx 120 per tire(not buy 2 get 2). So I'm looking for comfort, longer lasting, and a deal. Any advice would be appreciated.

I put Michelin Primacy MXV4's on my 09 LE V6 when my worthless and noisy Turanzas wore out prematurely. They are great and have a 60,000 mile warranty and improved the cornering ability of my car.. I did a lot of research .... and that research was confirmed with the test results release by consumerreports.org on 9-28-09..
They tested 15 V rated tires and 14 H rated tires. Michelin Primacy was the best H rated tire and Michelin Pilot Exalto A/S was best V rated.
Results will be published in the November issue. I cant send you a link to the internet posting because you have to be a member to join.

Felt the same way about my OEM Bridgestone EL400's that came on my Acura TL; had so many problems with them and since they were Bridgestone's they were the only one I was able to work an adjustment out on and get the top of the line Serenity's on the car for a really reduced price!! thankful to say the Serenity's are ten times better in all areas compared to the EL400's that came with the car but they still have a little bit too much road noise for my taste and don't compare to past Michelins and Kumhos I've had in regards to quietness and ride quality;
I will say that the Bridgestone Serenity's are probably one of the top three tires I have ever had but they are God awful expensive (almost $245 a tire for my TL but luckily I had the adjustment from Bridgestone); they are the best tire I've had in regards to performance, road feel, handling, and road grip but again while it is pretty good in ride quality and road noise it hasn't been able to beat Michelin and Kumho in those two areas; I'm most likely going to replace the Serenity's with the Primacy's when they wear out

I purchased two sets of michelin X tires from Sam's Club in recent years. That tire rated very high in a C/R report. I've been very happy with the ride comfort, quietness, and threadwear so far..

OK this is what I have been quoted so far: falken ze-502 4 tires out the door: $346, supposedly v rated. Primacy mxv4 $743 otd. toyo versado $502 otd, and cooper cs4, $473, with $50 rebate( approx $422). The first two sets have a free or discounted alignment, the second 2 sets have $50 alignment. I can buy lifetime alignment for $139/149, which I'm thinking of doing as I plan to have the car for at least 5 more years. possibly longer. The falkens are by far the best deal, but I dont know how those tires are, they said they were v rated and 65k tires. Any advice would be helpful. Thanks.PS this is all in S. California( no snow, hardly any rain)

Has anyone got any input on the Falken ze-502 tires? Or any other reasonable priced set of tires? Thanks for the input.

If you haven't received any responses, I'd recommend Tire Rack to see how the Falkens stacked up. I have no experience with them myself.
I've found the original equipment Michelin MX4 SV8 tires to be fine in spite of the bad-mouthing they seem to receive. But all Michelins are so expensive these days.

I agree about the MX4V S8 tires. I have them on both Camrys, and even though original equipment tires are not the best, these tires are better than most original equipment tires.
