I considered the A509's when I re-tired my '86 Nissan Maxima. However, I later found out
that they are not all-season tires by any means (which means the grip goes away as soon as
it gets cold out - all-season rating is a temperature-compound thing). If you are OK
without all-season tires, A509's are cheap and good, though Pirelli P600's offer a bit more
useable grip.

The tire I decided on was the Yokohama AVID MD-H4. They replace the Dunlop D60-A2's I
used to have. Great tires: directional groove, work better than the Dunlops in the dry,
WAY better in the wet, and they're all-season. I got them at around $60 a tire, mail-
ordered from Discount Tire Direct (I think - the Tire Rack also sells them).

Good Luck!
