    Hey guys,

    It's about time for me to buy a replacement set of tires for my car. Currently I use Cooper's CS4 Touring and I've been very happy with their performance, though I'm just pondering what other tire models I could consider, just out of curiosity. I've been happy with the dry/wet performance of these things and the noise is okay at highway speeds, though if there's anything else that's either quieter or better at fuel efficiency (or both), I'm open to suggestions. Thanks.

    I'm assuming the tires are for your Altima? What trim/year is it?

    Yep, and 2005 2.5S. I'm guessing that I have until the end of May before needing to replace the tires, since Lincoln's hair is almost completely visible.

    Well I don't see the Cooper CS4 on Tirerack. I usually recommend all seaons for year round performance as some summer tires suck in the wet performance category and who knows if this year's snow will be bad. I would look for a good balance of low-medium cost and a decent tread warranty and I highly recommend tire warranties that are all inclusive.

    I always go with Michelin tires. They aren't too terribly expensive for my car, but they are over $1000 for 4 on my truck.

    +1.

    I've been a Michelin user for well over 25 years on a plethora of vehicles and would highly recommend them.

    Defender - which is what I currently have on my van - is available for your car and I'd advise to shop around and get a good deal on them.
