So what were the tires you
So what were the tires you got?
Regarding a good LLR tire, your best is likely the original tire. I'm not sure what that is. FWIW, the HCHII comes with:
Bridgestone Insignia SE200-02
At least ours did. You can check out the SE200 and SE200-02 at Tirerack. The -02's come in only 2 sizes, which may nort work with your '05. They're also 2lb's lighter than the SE200, and have a slightly different width. Their country of origin is Japan, I believe the SE200's stated CA, which I believe equals Canada. Anyway, I would think the regular SE200, which is available in more sizes, is a close match, but not sure.
The SE200 has pretty dismal ratings for traction at Tirerack, I think it's pretty difficult getting LLR *and* top-notch traction. Our SE200-02's have worked out ok in temperate west coast climate. They're not that hot in the snow, but "ok".
Any update on this situation
Any update on this situation - I'm just about to replace my standard tires on my Ford Fusion Hybrid - any recommendations? I've been looking at Mavis Tire because they are local and have some really good deals, and let you search by size. I live in an area where it does snow from time to time, so need tires with decent traction. Just looking for an input! Thanks.
I have been getting about
I have been getting about 50MPG but I just replaced the factory tires and I dropped by about 7 MPG. I coulld not find LRR tires in my area.PC Talk
The main environment that
The main environment that the vehicle is going to be used in should determine what kind of wheels to get. Obviously, if the vehicle is going to be used in a primarily grassy or sandy place, having a thick tooth traction pattern would be very helpful. lithium ion battery pack
