The info below if for people who want a super smooth tire, and don't do heavy offroading. I thought you might like to see what I found and what I liked.

I've been looking for new tires lately. I don't do much offroading, just mainly snow and need to replace the goodyear rt/s. I wanted a tire that rides super smooth, and one that has a nice aggresive look. I just went to look at it, an I really like it. It looks MUCH BETTER IN PERSON, and I like the blackwall better imop. They were $170 a piece at the goodyear dealer, but tirerack has them on special for $115 each I think.

- could use some Endurance, hehe.

Goodyear just came out this this new tire, and it just got the Popular mechanics award as well as a bunch of others. I had been looking at the ltx and crossterrain as well, but wanted something different. This may be the one I choose.
