Default VUE FWD/sport standard tires

I have not heard anybody complaining about the stock tires, so just in case, are they decent? They are Bridgestone Duelers.

I am only asking because I will upgrade before I pick up.

Thanks

The stock tires are Dueller H/Ts. I upgraded to Dueller H/Ls; a totally different (and far superior) tire. Check it out on Tirerack.

I found a huge improvement in roadholding and handling. The H/L has much stiffer sidewalls than the H/T. The result is less swaying when driving.

I'm sorry this may be a dumb question, but when you say upgrade do you mean the Saturn retailer will allow you to trade the stock tires and apply the value of the stock tires toward a better tire?

Hrm, is there really that much of a diff between the HT and HL? I am happy with my HTs right now.. it handles great and they seem like a good match for the VUE.

I meant having Saturn upgrade the tires and I pay the difference.

I am not buying another tire package (snow). I did it last year, and now I am trying to sell them!!!

So maybe that is the reason why the VUE is so susceptible to crosswinds?

How much more did you have to pay for the upgrade?

Never really noticed a problem with crosswinds on my VUE. Granted I haven't driven across the Burlington Skyway Bridge but even on open stretches of the 401 in the farming areas of Southwestern Ontario it didn't faze me.

If I am not mistaken, the Bridge had been closed before due to too strong crosswinds, especially during Winter time.

Not usually, although when we hear there is someone from "Trawna" coming over we usually turn up the wind and warn everyone else to get off first! <g>

BTW....I did get the tire upgrade. Since this is a sport model, I got the Deuller 235 / 65 's. I think they say H/T on them. It was included in the package along with alloys (to my surprise)!!!
