So far, in the first three days they're very good. I inflated them to 48psi and I'm getting a much smoother, quieter ride. I'm also getting much better cornering capability. Still too soon to tell if the mpg has dropped.

FWIW- I've also got a '99 Insanity I30. After the OEM rubber erased, I put on Bridgestone Turanza, and have stuck with them. I believe I'm on 2nd replacement set, at almost 130k miles. Good wet/dry traction, cornering, and quietness.

Since my Vehicle is being repaired and needs a Tire Alignment, I am going to get some new tires. I decided to get a lifetime alignment from Firestone for $169.99.

After reading this thread I was looking at the following tire:

ProContact EcoPlus 205/65R16 95T BSW for $89.80 each. T rate for 112 MPH with a 80,000 mile warranty.

The PureContact are $107 each. The purecontact is h Rated for 130mph with a 70,000 mile warranty

Discount will beat the price so I would get it locally and installed.

What are your thoughts?

You will feel the handling deficit going to a T speed rated tire. Places like Costco and Sam's will not even install a T rated tire on this car, as it calls for a higher speed rating from factory. Since mine is long gone, I don't recall if it's H or V, but it certainly is not T. You may get better wear out out of a T speed rating, but the last thing you want is to lose control of the vehicle by cheaping out on the tire's speed rating, because sidewall integrity/rigidity (and ultimately handling) will suffer.

BTW, good to hear you got the trans issue resolved. Good to hear.

Well the more and more that I read about the continental tires the more I like them and the company. Continental Tires is one of the only mfg. that include a Road Hazard Warranty With The Tire. Now with that said it is only good for 12 Months so I will most likely go with Discounts Road Hazards.

With reading all of the information here I also decided that the Continental PureContact were the better choice.

So far I have the price down to $515 with lifetime mounting balancing, Road Hazard and it includes the required rebuild of the tmps. But I do get a $30 visa card rebate. So it works out to $485 out the door.

I have had the PureContacts on for a while now, and they are great. Quiet, great handling on wet and dry roads, and also priced right. You will not regret making them your tire choice. Good luck on your repair and new tires.

My son has the pure contacts on his Subaru WRX and he likes them but two of his tires developed a bubble onthe side. Both were replaced under warranty but I am wondering if the sidewalls are weak.

Thanks Vinny,

So the price changed last minute with it being Columbus weekend sales.

I ended up going with the Continental PureContact for $113.99 a tire lest $183. So the tires were $68.24 plus tax. With the replacement road hazards, TPMS rebuild, Lifetime balancing etc the price was $443.80 out the door. I also am getting a $30 Visa Card for putting it on there Store Credit, of course it was 0% interest for 6 Months.

Thanks to everyone who has posted here, some great information.

Get your tire on!

Great price. I paid a lot more than that, as they weren't on sale. I hope it makes the pain of the tranny issue a little less.
