Its time to get new all-season tires for my 1994 Camry LE V6 in size 205/65R15. I have narrowed it down to the following: Michelin Pilot XGT H4 - 205/65HR15 - $85 a tire BF Goodrich Traction T/A H - 205/65R15 - $78 a tire BF Goodrich Traction TA V - 205/65R15 - $99 a tire The car in driven in the Long Island New York area so snow traction is a consideration. Anyone have experience with these tires? Any recommendations would be gladly appreciated.

Have you looked at the Goodyear Triple Tread? But, if you have settled on those 3, I would choose the Traction T/A H. It's rated to 130 and show give you a pretty good blend of comfort and performance.

I've had Goodyear Triple Treds on the wife's '05 Corolla LE for the last 12K miles. Excellent tire.

The BF Goodrich's are fantastic. I put them on my gf's Mazda Protege 5 and she loves them [Smile] . I would take them anyday over the Michelins. They're even great in the snow!

Out of those three tires, go with the cheapest one... the BF Goodrich Traction T/A H. Not only are they the least expensive, but you don't need the V-rated tires on your Camry. Plus the H-rated will give you better snow traction. I'm not a fan of the Michelins.

We have the Traction T/A T rated on our Avalon which is supposed to have H speed rated.... they are amazing tires. Better high speed stability than the Falkens we had or the OEM Michelins

I just bought a set of V rated Traction T/A's size 225/60 X 15 for my Fox Mustang. I'm pretty happy so far. They're decent in the dry and amazing in the rain. I looked at and have previously owned a number of tires before I got the BFG's and I don't think you could find a better tire for the money. The only downside you might find is the ride quality. They have a BFG feel to them, IOW, a stiff sidewall in the vertical direction so you can feel smaller road imperfections that other tires might ignore. Tirerack has a test of these tires vs. some others and the BFG's came out the winner - http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tests/testResultsModel.jsp?tireMake=BFGoodrich&tireModel=Traction+T%2FA+V&vehicleSearch=false&fromCompare1=yes&partnum=26VR5TTA
