Post subject:  Tire Suggestions

Tires seem to be a challenge. No one seems to be thrilled with the OEM FireHawks. But every tire discussion I could find has page after page of suggestions without really framing why those choices were made.

So let me tell you what I'm looking for, and ask for suggestions of where I might look.

I have three main criteria:

1. Range: at worst any choice should have comparable range to the OEM tires.
2. Cost: Cheaper than FireHawks would be ideal.
3. Performance: I can squeak the FireHawks on aggressive pulloffs and tight turns. Something with more grip would be welcome.

Since I'm getting 4 tires, I'm open to alternate sizes.

Finally it's a stock 2014 daily commuter. No style points necessary. Just as long as tire fit in the wheel wells.

I'm really interested in hearing about the range and performance. So any comments about them would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

I just wanted to report back. I took the advice of Erik822 on the the Fiat500owners forum. He suggested putting on Kuhmo's 4xII's. V speed rating and similar tire wear to the OEM Firehawks. Cheaper too. They were smooth as butter in my initial testing. I'll see how the range goes. I took advantage of Sam's Club August 4th tire event and got their installation and warranty services for free. Got out the door with a complete set for $360.

We'll see how it goes.
