Executive37I own a 1994 Grandam. Live in Ottawa (harsh winters) and am looking to replace the orignal tires. Vehicle has 90,000km; I will keep car for another 4-5 years and probably put another 60-90 km on the tires. What about tire size/ I was told to buy 195/70 R14? Thanks
donfromnaplesThe stock size on a Grand Am Sedan was 185/75R14 in 1994. I would stick with this size because it will give you a slightly more comfortable ride and the tires will cost less than the 195/70R14 sized tires. The Bridgestone Turanza Z Revo tires do a very good job in winter weather yet also can be used year round. I also like the Pirelli P400 and the Yokohoma Aegis. Compare prices with your local store and then with I always order from them. They ship my tires to a shop close to my house who will mount and balance my new tires for a set price(which is no more than what they charge for mounting and balancing if you had purchased the tires from them-usually about $15-$20 a tire). My email is if you have any other questions. Also, read some of the older posts here where someone was looking for tires that offer good winter weather abilities.
hhhhWhile the stock size may be, 185/75/14, the GT and others with aluminum wheels came with the 195/70/14. Either will work, just replace it with what you have. I have Goodyear Regatta II tires on my GA in MN. They work and ride well. Although I have to admit, I had one bad one from the factory. It didn't fail, but pulled the car to whatever side it was mounted on.
