I need to get some new rubber on the car. I am very partial to Michelin, but I know there are a lot of good tires on the market. On my previous car I put Michelin Hydroedge tires on it and they made my taurus stick like glue on dry and wet pavement. The snow traction was good, and better than expected on ice. I have looked at the Goodyear Assurance TripleTred and they seem to be a good choice as well. Anyone have any experience with the Assurance tires or does anyone else have any other good suggestions? I know I won't go wrong with the Michelins, but I am looking to see if I can find all the pros of the Hydroedge with a little better snow traction. I can get the Michelins for $135 and the Goodyears for $126. I like good tires, they are one of the main components that keeps you firmly planted on the road.
