I'm about to purchase a set of one of these tires for my '95 Honda Civic. I live in Nebraska and we see temperatures range from -20 in the winter to 110 in the summer.

We also see everything from rain, snow, sleet, ice, sand, etc...

Which tire do you receommend for this kind of environment ???

Thanks in Advance !!!

I don't have too much insight here... but I do have a set of XGT V4 on my 98 Tiburon. Living in Ontario, Canada, we get all the weather variables!!
I haven't been too happy with my XGT's, ---> in the wet they lack alot of traction; spinning away from a stop position is common place.
And the last 2 winters have been anything but "fun" to drive in. I'm in major city, so alot of street/highway driving.
I can say they have worn nicely though, I'm at 90 000 Kms (appx 55 000 miles) and they are starting to hit their wear indicator.
And they are quite smooth and fairly quiet in the dry/highway routes.

Haven't had any experience with Pirelli's!

I would say that I wouldn't buy these again. (for this car in this environment!)

Hope this helps in someway!

Had a set of Pirelli Super Touring P4000. Good overall performance with good stick in dry and wet conditions. They did seem to ride very rough and transmited small bumps to give a noisy ride. I'm using Firestone Firehawk SH30's now and find them to be a superior tire in every way. Quiet, smooth riding with very good wet traaction. Even after 12,000 miles they show no wear.

Looking furhter back in through the postings, on September 14, there was posting on the XGT's, with alot of feedback. If you don't get any replies here, try looking through the archive.

There are a few that agree with the wet traction comments that I made!

Drive Safe!
