Rick BorieLooking for all-around satisfactory tires with regard to dry and wet traction and handling, tread wear, and noise. Snow is only a minor concern here in Alabama.

The tires are for a Lexus ES 300, which is essentially the same car as a Camry. The original Goodyear Eagle GAs were adequate for dry traction and noise, but disappointing for wet conditions and tread life.

These are some tires I'm considering:

BF Goodrich Comp T/A
Firestone Firehawk SH30
Dunlop D60 A2
BF Goodrich Touring T/A
Pirelli P6000 Sport Veloce

Please help with your advice or recommendations.

PezRick, Of the tires you are considering the overwhelming winner in this group is the Firestone Firehawk SH 30.
JayThe Comp T/A is a hi-performance tire, and it doesn't sound like what you are looking for - if you like BFG, stick with the Touring T/A's. If you are considering the D60 A2's, I'd look at the Dunlop sp 5000, a much better version of the same type of tire. I've not heard good things about the Pirelli P6000 SV's - poor wet traction and tire wear. The Firestones are a good "sporty" tire, similar to the sp 5000's and with all-weather capability that the Comp T/A's won't give you - if you want a "sport" type tire.

If you are not looking for outstanding performace in any particular category, but want a long lasting tire, look at the Michelin X-One. It may be pricey, but if you are keeping the car, it will outlast all the others in treadwear.
