Well its a bit sooner than I was planning, but it looks like tires are on order for the Intrepid. Girlfriend wants to go to KS for Thanksgiving, and we want to take my car because its the most comfortable. However, the Michelin Pilot Alpines are starting to show tread wear, but more importantly they are showing dry rot.

I was leaning towards Eagle GTs, but as I was planning for tires next year, they probably aren't in the budget.

I think I'm going to go with Sumitomo HTR A/S P01 Ultra High Performance All-Season tires.


At $500 for a set on tire rack they seem to be the best deal in town, and the reviews seem pretty positive about their performance on dry and wet roads. Since the car sits in the winter I'm not concerned about snow (which is ironic since I have snow tires on there right now). Plus the 6yr/40,000 mile warranty is pretty good I think.

Has anyone ever run these?

I've found a couple other possibilities.

On the slightly higher end are Falken Azenis PT722 A/S tires which seems to also have pretty good reviews.


These are a new tire by Falken, apparently their first Ultra High Performance All-Season tires and seems to have good ratings for grip in wet and dry, and the noise levels seem to be good as well.

On the lower end I found these Nankang Ultra Sport NS-II tires which seems to have pretty good reviews despite the low price.


At $104 97 each (with free shipping) they're a fair bit cheaper than anything else (which all have shipping charges from the vendors that sell them for the best price). They may be the ones I get if I don't have enough to spring for the Falkens or Sumitomos by the time I need to get them (beginning of November).

  • Chevy Estimated Range for Silverado EV Work Truck Raised to 450 miles

    When Chevrolet initially took the wraps off the Silverado EV last year, GM had estimated up to a 400 mile range based on its own calculations.  As the Silverado EV has made its way through development, it went for EPA certification and came back with 50 miles more than GM's estimate.  With this new EPA certification, the Silverado EV has an over 100-mile advantage over its only on-sale competitor the F-150 Lightning Extended Range (320 miles). The Silverado EV will launch first in WT trim with t


    All New 2024 Toyota Tacoma Yearns For Adventure

    The Toyota Tacoma has been the best-selling mid-size pickup in the U.S. for nearly 20 years. Holding such an important place in the lineup, Toyota has been very conservative with updates in the past.  The outgoing generation ran for a full 7 years, but even that was based on a platform that dates all the way back to 2004.  For 2024, the Tacoma sheds the old platform entirely and joins the Tundra and Sequoia on Toyota's new TNGA-F global truck platform.  The 2024 Tacoma is the latest (and final)


    The Ford Ranger Raptor Finally Comes to the US

    After years of being forbidden fruit offered only in overseas markets, Ford has finally deemed the Ranger Raptor worthy enough to bring to the U.S. The biggest reason for the U.S. not getting the prior version was its standard diesel power and the inability of the platform to take a sizable V6 engine. When Ford redesigned the 2024 Ranger (read more about the 2024 Ford Ranger here), they made sure to alter the engine bay and chassis to accommodate a V6. Powering the Ranger Raptor is a 3.0-li
