Default I Might Need New Tires...Opinions?

A few months ago I bought some new tires and wheels. A couple of weeks ago I developed a strange noise. My son described it best "it sounds like a truck on 35" off road tires".

When I bought them I didn't have a ton of money so I cheaped out. These are Fullway tires. I thought maybe the noise was coming from an axle or wheel bearing maybe??? Im still not 100%,but I had it looked at and the guy pretty much said its just because they are shitty tires...Is it possible that it would be the tires?

Im not opposed to getting some new tires because the noise is driving me crazy. What are some good tires for our cars? I want to be less than 200.00 a tire. I think Im going to stick with brand new tires only.

Any thoughts on this would be very helpful...

David,
Several members in the past have asked this question about what tire to buy.

I drive on Michelin's.

Here is one thread where I posted info on my tires.

New Tires - Confused

I think these are the best. Yes they are expensive, but they will last. You get what you pay for.

Search for "tires" to see what other threads can offer you more information.

Default Re: I Might Need New Tires...Opinions?

If you are on 20's I think a good, cheaper tire would be the Nexen N3000's. That's what I have and they are very quiet. I think they are just a summer tire though but with you being in Cali, you are constantly in summer. Lol.

You usually can get them for about 120-150 per tire. Depending on the size of course.

Also look up the Nexen N7000's. Just a little Upgrade from the Nexen N3000's

Thanks Nick. I actually had some of the 3000's. They were pretty nice for the price. The only problem I had was that when they wore about half way they started getting noisy. Im still thinking that Im going to stick with one of the big name manufactures.

I have Nexen 3000's on my 20's so far ~11k and they are still quiet and are wearing nice. I paid $110 for 245-35-20 and $120 for 255-35-20. Also have the 7000's on my stock wheels with about 25k and they are still quiet.

When I first got my 20's I had the 3000's on them. They were some really good tires. I probably got 45,000 miles out of them. Like I said I did get some noise but that was probably after 30,000 and even then it wasnt as loud as the noise Im getting now.Im really leaning towards the 7000's. Im looking for something more for comfort and low noise over performance...

I've had decent luck with Nexen 3000 as well. Also try Tire Rack, the will send you rebate deal for like $50 if you buy 4tires. I ended up with a killer dealer on some Michelins
