Help me chose Summer( All season ) tires please
I was living in Toronto and had 2 sets of tires
Uniroyal Tiger Paw 205 65 R15 for 3 seasons
Bridgestone Blizzak ws80 195 65 R15 as dedicated winter tires
I moved from Toronto to Winnipeg at the end of Jan so I has blizaaks on the car.
As it was long drive 2200 kms, folks at rfd suggested to keep one full size 205 65 R15 Uniroyal as spare tire rather than just relying on the donut tire so I have one of those Uniroyal with me.
Now I am in the market for all season tires.
Manitoba roads are rough compared to GTA ( or Ontario) in general and I guess they will be less forgiving for the tires hence I am looking for some tough tires.
What do you suggest?
I researched on tirerack.
General Altimax RT43 H rated seems to be their favorite. What about Michelin premier A/S?
Also should I buy all 4 new rims or I can use one rim of the original tire that I have?
Or I buy 5 tires in Total( 4 new rims and one old. That way I could have a full size spare tire if we go long trips in summer. This side of Canada we better be bit self sufficient rather than relying on CAA etc....
What you guys say?
Planning to keep car for min 5 years. It drives like new....
