Folks, had an unfortunate accident a mile from home, on a street where the stupid city built concrete 'pullouts' shape like rectangles, and they couldn't even round the freaking corners. My wife and daughters don't even attempt to clear them with incoming cars; they just wait. You clear those darn things by inches; it's ridiculous. Anyway, had to swerve to avoid a dog, and I barely caught the edge with both right wheels/tires. It sounded awful, and threw the car sideways. I expected the wheel to be broken, or at least bent enough to deflate the tire instantly. Surprisingly, none of that happened. Even though the wheels are not even forged, they're super strong. I'd have preferred the wheels sacrificing themselves, rather than the suspension, even if that meant leaving the car there. Oh well. Tires have a chunk sheared off, where you can see the sidewall cords, so need new ones. And that's the reason for my post. I used this car almost exclusively to travel, and those stock Hankook H426s are noisy as heck on the broken pavement prevalent in this area. Might as well change them now, to at least have something to look forward to after the fix . Yeah, it'll cost me more, but prefer better and quieter tires from major brands, like Michelin, etc. I'd appreciate precise brand and model recommendations from actual users, since each car is different. I prefer the same category, which is 'grand touring all-season' with a V-rating, but an 'ultra-high-performance all-season' would be fine too. Thanks gang.
