LKGot suggestions for a green tire buyer?

OEM rear tires must go. Front tires are 2 yr old Costco Michelin X Metric (175/70 R14 84T M&S) with about 1/2 their 60,000 warranty gone. Since I have AWD, all 4 tires MUST be the same, so may replace all 4 because it will take 2 weeks and $140 to order new Michelin X metric tires via Costco (my only option).

I live in a rural area of LA, so contend with highway/city/uphill/dirt road/crazy driver conditions. (All season tires? Performance? Circus tires?) 4-5 times a year also make the 800 mile roundtrip drive to/from San Francisco at 85-90 mph, so don't know if an S speed rating is too low. I am considering getting 4 new tires but price is a factor. Yokohama Aegis LS4, Avid T4 and Avid Touring all look like good value but my husbank says Michelin Michelin Michelin. A tire company my dealer recommended has BF Goodrich TASR4s on sale, 4 for $213. Hmm...

Also, not clear what the real dif between All Season and Touring tires are ... seems like touring tires are more comfortable for long drives but may not handle as well under certain weather situations?


Michelin has a fantastic reputation but also a hefty pricetag. I have read good things in a magazine review about the Yokohoma Aegis LS4 and they are selling for $41 each at It will cost you another $10 for shipping (approx.) for each tire making your grand total about $204 for a set of four. All Season are supposed to handle various temperature changes and traction conditions better than Touring tires. Touring tires are supposed to be longer wearing and quieter/smoother tires on the highway. Don't worry about an S rated tire. It will handle 80-90mph highway driving. I hope this has helped you out.
