2008 SKY Red Line
Default What are the best tires for a Saturn Sky Redline/Turbo?

We need to replace our tires due to a thumping sound coming from the rear tires. they have 55k on them and 3mm tread, so it's time. We just want the best for the best! Any suggestions?

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

I've always loved Michelins. The Michelin Primacy is a very nice luxury touring tire, I have them on my SC2 and love them.

On edit, a Sky Redline Turbo may require more of a performance tire like the Michelin Pilot Exalto which don't last as long as the Primacy's, but have a more performance oriented construction and higher speed rating.

Bit late for your orignal post. I have 30k on my 2008 Red Line and not close to new boots yet, but when the time comes I am going with Toyo Proxies from my good friends a Les Schwab. Or whatever else they recommend by then. Spendy proposition whatever you go for.

I personally like the BFGoodrich G-FORCE COMP-2 A/S
some of the best ratings I've seen for tires and they are really good if you drive spiritedly, but dont expect them to last 55k miles.
