My car needs a new set of tires.
Any recommendations, comments or suggestions?

I have done some research online (on touring all-season tires) and have a few favorites, they are:

1)Yokohama Avid Touring (around $50)
2)Goodyears Regetta 2 ($69-75)
3)Toyo Spectrum ($65)

Another question is that the current tire size is P215/60SR16. Can I replace them with P225/60HR16 or P255/55HR16? My friend told me to not change the speed rating of the tire because it would affect the suspension's operation. (Different tire compound)

you can upgrade to an H rated tire with only improved performance in handling and braking, no down side to it.

you can not increase your width to 255 though over the stock 215.

i also like the ratings for the Goodyear Aquatred 3 compared to the tires you listed.

I have a Park Avenue with Goodyear Regatta II
Good ride but I did not feel I will get good mileage from them. I also have a Eldorado that I am going to consider the Yokohama touring for it. We shall see.
