I just ordered a set of four 175/65R-15 Yokohama AVID ENVigor tires off of Tirerack.com ($336); will be having them put on this Thursday 10/6/11.Hey guys, its time to replace the front tires as they are pretty worn out
Whats the general concensus for a replacement tire. Ive read the OEM tires stink, so what is everyone going with??
Great finding Shawn! So far as the assurance fuel max was the tire I was thinking to put on my I2 once I'm done with the Dunlops. But I couldn't find the 175/65R15 size (was a bit lazy and looked pretty much only Tire rack… shame on me). I was falling back on a 185/60R15 instead. I wrote to Goodyear a while back asking if they would ever produce the 175/65R15 size and got the reply "Not in our plan". It's probably very new (they don’t even list the specs yet on their website), but I’m glad they decided to produce it after all...... and they replaced them with the Assurance FuelMax 175/65/15. ....
I don't have rims but I am looking. I found rims that go to a Mazda Miata of 14" size and probably 6. I know the I1 rims are 14"x5.5", would they work with the 175/65/R14 winter tires that I mentioned on my I1? please give me advice before I buy them. they are aluminium and look good.i assume you have an extra set of 14" rims ??? the I2 comes stock with 15" units
Very interesting. How about the mpg, have you noticed any difference?After 26000 miles the Dunlops are gone!! Yay!! I just put a set of Bridgestone Ecopia 422 195/60R15's on and so far love them. They are SO MUCH QUIETER. They handle SO MUCH BETTER. I've only had the car for 1500 miles and the Dunlops were scary in the way that they handled. I have hated them every day for the past three weeks that I've owned the car. On the Bridgestones I have the PSI at 50 and I'll see how I like that. I may end up bringing it back to 45. (Discount set them at 37.) I was going to use my Costco coupon next week and the quote was $371 out the door, not including rebuilding the Tire Pressuring Monitoring Systems in each tire. I gave Discount Tire a chance to beat it and they came back with $392 out the door including the TPMS plus amazing service. I didn't have to wait til next week when the Costco coupon was valid and then wait for them to order them. Discount got them in the next day.
