My mom's Camry, that my sister has been driving for the last few years, will be needing new tires in the not so distant future ($$$$). The BFG Touring T/A Pro series from Sam's Club have almost 50k miles on them. They're suppose to be a 70k miles tire, but due to the tire pressure being rarely checked they have worn down to 4/32nds on the shoulders of the tires and the middle has about 6/32nds tread. On a recent highway trip in heavy rain my sister said they were hydroplaning. Of course she didn't slow down as much as she should have by going 50-55 mph. They've gotten noisy too. One of the tires is on a corner that had a bad wheel bearing, and now there's a loud humming noise even though the bearings were replaced. I've been researching and found some budget tires in the $300-$350 range, but I'm wary about traction, treadwear, and the overall quality of the tire. I came across the Michelin Hydroedge and they look like the perfect fit for what I'm looking for. The price is about $100 more than the budget tires on the list after a $60 rebate. The treadwear rating is really high and reviews on Tire Rack are good. What are the thoughts of members here who have/had these tires? How does the Hydrogedge compare to the tires below? Are they worth the extra money over the budget tires? The budget tires on my list are: Sumitomo HTR H4 Sumitomo HTR T4 Kumho Solus KR21 Kumho Solus KH16 General Altimax HP I'm also looking at the the Goodyear TripleTred, but they would be about $60 more for a set compared to the Hydroedge unless a rebate comes up along the way. Thanks for any opinions.
