My 2002 Nissan Altima 2.5 has 205/65R16 size tires. I'm most interested in good traction for pretty normal driving (almost never gun it in except for passing and merging) in mostly dry conditions (occasional rain, no snow), comfort, noise, and long life. To give you an idea of what my driving experience is like with this car, I'm actually pretty happy with the EL42s (a tire with a terrible reputation) except for 2 things: I live on a hill and in the rain the front tires will occasionally slip a little after starting from a stop when I'm going up. The tires have maybe 4/32" on them. The other issue is how fast the tires get worn down for a "touring" tire. On TireRack, they have a couple tires I'm interested in: Yokohama Avid TRZ $67 Kumho Solus KH16 $59 The Yokos got slightly better reviews, but not by much. They also have a much higher UTQG rating (700!!) at only a few dollars more. Does anybody have any experience with this tire? Thanks. On a side note, I can get the Falken Ziex ZE512 tire for about this price (in 215/60 size). It's classified as a "performance" all season tire and has a more aggressive tread pattern, but I hear it wears faster than a lot of other all season tires. If I drove the Altima harder, I'd definitely get this tire, but I'm a pretty mild driver with this car. I'd also expect skinnier tires to get better MPG.
