    What tires are you running on??? Its been 8 yrs.

    Mine are around 8 yrs old and look good but IIRC 10 is the max so its time to start looking. Did a quick search did not see much later than 2012 info. What are the favorites most are running and where to get them?? I am foggy on it but recall the fronts were from one manufacturer and the rears another. Any info appreciated and links even better. Thanks........

    195/60/14 Cooper Touring in the front and 235/60/15Cooper Cobras in the rear. Drives great! Tread patterns are not the same but at least the brand is matching.

    I'm running Dean Tire Road Control NW3 195/60/14's in front and BF Goodrich Radial 245/60/15's in the rear. Tread patterns don't match, but they ride very nicely.

    im looking at these myself as my current tires are 9 and 10 years old. going with 195s for front, 225s for rear?
    i look forward to hearing what you think of them. the price is nice for these but i dont have any personal experience with the General brand - though reviews are quite positive.

    Summit Tires (Sure Tire) replied back confirming they don't offer a 235 tire. The matching 225/195 tires are Summit HP Radial Trac II. Although this is a US based tire company the tires are produced in Vietnam.

    I didn't realize Fuzion was actually a Bridgestone company as pointed out by someone else on this thread. Looks like they are made in China for our sizes.

    Uniroyal might still produce their tires in the US and Canada. I forgot all about this brand.

    If you want a closer sidewall look & tread pattern you can go with Cooper CS3 (front) & CS5 (rear). Been running those since July 2017. Tiny bit of more info on them from me here.
