Gents, I am starting my quest for tires for my caliber after they have started making pretty bad racket, which is standard for the CRAPstones that are on it. It has about 23.5k on it so far and most people are lucky to get the things to last 20k. So anyway, the size is 215/55R18 and on tire rack, out of all the tire brands they carry, guess how many they have??? Frikkin' 4 matches in the original size. (and two of those are OEM tires!
) Here's the list:
Firestone Firehawk GTA-03 (what's on there right now, standard on R/Ts)
Bridgestone Potenza RE92A
Bridgestone Turanza EL 400-02 (the other OEM tire offered on the SEs and SXTs)
The average review for each of these tires is around 1-2.5, best I've seen is 2.9. Ideas on what to do? I don't know of anybody that has reprogrammed the speedometers for these yet or if you change a gear like we do in our jeeps, so I'd prefer to go to the factory size again. The ones on there are kind of hard, don't corner good, loud, and haven't lasted terribly long at all. (I guess the lifespan has been acceptable though) What to do with ****ty options like this?
