    Tires for 2013 Toyota Camry LE

    Looking to replace the original Michelins without spending the money on replacement Michelins, which is outrageous.

    Anyhoo, the car is a 2013 Toyota Camry LE and the tire size is 205/65R16. I am considering these but have never had Firestone tires before:

    Seems to be a good tire at a good price. I also have gotten tires from there before and have been pleased with their service. Thoughts? Better ideas?

    I also know two of the tire pressure sensors are bad and need to be replaced. Should I get those done at the same time or go to the dealer?

    TIA!

    I did a quick search of Michelin 205/65R16. Not that I'd buy from WalMart, but they had a Michelin Energy Saver for $124.

    I'd do a little more shopping. See if Curtis in Great Mills can do something for you.

    I have had good performance with the Toyo's I put on my 1995 Saturn


    Toyo Extensa A/S either a 195 stock or 205 [for my car]

    65k warranty


    not that you are going to drive to Silver Spring
    - but Radial Tire always too good care of me, my wife has used them since the mid 90s
    We’re tempted to suggest a conspiracy here — but it’s just liberals agreeing yet again that conservatives have hidden, evil motives, because modern liberals simply can’t conceive of any other reason to disagree with the liberal consensus.

    The problem with Curtis is time. Their hours do not work well with my schedule:

    M-F: 7:30 a.m. 5:30 p.m.
    Sat: 8:00 a.m. 1:00 p.m.
    Sun: Closed

    But I did go to their website and request quotes for several tires so I will see if it is worth it to go there. Thanks! And GWGuy I am very hesitant to get tires from Walmart again. It was a nightmare the first time and I really don't want to relive it.

    I really like Michelin's. They are a good, solid tire and wear very well. I was curious about their pricing for your car and found this website below. I used a St. Mary's zip code (but it showed the same price as when I used a Calvert zip code). The price for their Premier All Season is not that bad. I guess it depends on the place you are getting them from with their markup, and installation and other taxes/fees.

    Also, if you are a member of Sam's Club, you can get tires done pretty cheap there. Here is their Waldorf site:

    Good luck!

    No, I have a very short commute distance-wise but am planning on some distance traveling soon. I will look at those, too. Thanks!

    General, Hankook, and Cooper are all good discount tires. I ran three sets of the Generals on the SRT where I hammered them pretty hard and they both held the road well, and lasted pretty well too. I have set on them on the beater 2001 BMW and they are long lasting and handle winter fine. I ran two sets of Hankooks on the Charger also and like them too. ( Charger had 175K when I sold it and up until the Generals, went through a set ever 20K :))

    A few points to remember. Long life is bought with traction. So while a 70,0000 treadwear sounds great, that means the compound is harder and there for has a bit less grip. Same for tires touting fuel savings, that sort of tire by design has less traction. You dont need the pencil erasers I usually put on the Charger, but Big Wheel class tires (long wearing or fuel saving) are a compromise in the other direction, so be aware of that.

    About the sensors, how do you know they are bad? Maybe just a reset needed?

    Good info. Thanks!

    The low pressure tire light is on and won't go off. I had a flat tire over the summer and when Southern Tire repaired it, they checked the sensors on all 4 tires and said two were bad. I didn't have the money then to have them fixed so I figured while I'm getting new tires I will get them fixed too.

    Thanks. I love Michelins also and am trying to fight my love of them with my pocketbook which says no way.

    I am not a member of Sam's Club anymore plus I live in Solomons and work in the California area, so I am trying to stay as local as possible.
