Shopping for quality tires

Time for tires now, as I had a fire lit under my *** to get them now that I have three screws in my rear driver side tire. It's my daily driver. Any recommendations, I was looking at the fusions - What tires have you used and what luck have you had with them?

I had fusions on my old civic. They were nice. I'm in the same boat as you. I am thinking of getting tires this fall. My mother and grandmother have both used firestone winterforce tires with great success.

I found Kumho Solus KR21s for 339.35 with installation at a shop near me. Take it run or is there something better for that price?

I love my Cooper AT3s, and whatever Coopers I have on my Hyundai, next set for both will be Coopers again. With install and a small finance charge, it was just under $500 for the AT3s on my ZJ

Mine came with the Solus. Nice and quiet but seem to wear fast.

I'm on my third set of Kumho Solus. I like them and Kumho in general. The smaller factory size 215-75R15 lasted about a year. The larger 225-75R15 lasted about two years. Don't know what the deal is with that other than me having a heavy foot. They run about $380 for four at the local Discount Tire.
