Default Tire Recommendation - 2007 Saturn Aura XR

I'm sure this has been discussed many-a-time. Some of the threads I found were several years old.

I'm in the market for new tires. I would like something that is quiet, durable and has good wet traffic (as well as good normal traction of course).

Just curious what tires you guys are happy with.

thanks

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Well - we went with the FalkenPro Touring A/S 225 /50 R18 tires at Discount Tire.

Chose these because the got a good rating (supposedly) and for price.

Hoping for the best

2008 AURA XE
Default Re: Tire Recommendation - 2007 Saturn Aura XR

I bought a set of General AltiMAX RT43 for my XE. Been happy with them. Ran them the past 2 Canadian winters and they never let me down. Pretty impressive traction and grip for an all season tire. They are wearing very well and have a good tread wear warranty. They have a couple of features I've never seen on other tires...when new there are indicators that are designed to tell you if you need an alignment, if they wear off evenly in the first couple of hundred miles you don't need an alignment. When the tire is worn out the word replace appear in the center.
The Tire Rack did a review on them. I bought them at Walmart for the free rotation every 10,000km and repair. They patched one for me that got a screw in it.

2007 AURA XR
Default Re: Tire Recommendation - 2007 Saturn Aura XR

Michelin Pilot HX MXM4 235/50-18, love these tires, great grip and wear, quiet, changed the personality of the car (it had Goodyear RSA which were awful), expensive but I looked around and got a great deal online.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

I'm a big fan of those tires. I've had 4 sets of them on various cars. And when my Aura needs tires, I'll use them again.

I should add that they are terrific in both snow and rain, which makes them a go-to tire for me.
I put a set on my daughter's Buick, an SL1 and SL2, and my Vue.
The set on my Aura should make it through summer, then i'll put an Altimax set on it.
