Hello everyone,
I bought some Wynstar tires the other day. Supposedly there pretty good..and they were bought out by Michelin. Can anyone tell me, if i should go with Bridgestone instead,, i mean, the Wynstars for 17" momo rim, run about $125ea. The thing that stood out the most in regards to the Wynstar was the fact that it had 2 plies on the sidewall, i guess thats a good thing?? In comparison to Dunlops, it seems that the Wynstar outperformed it in treadwear and +2 sidewall.. Anyway, just trying to fiind the best tire out there... I know tirerack.com has some good ones, but i still having an ambiguous feeling,, please advise.
laters,
eric

Easy dawg. Your correct though.

I've never heard of Wynstar Tires before, so I can't really comment on them. Eventhough, I could because I am familiar with several tire companies, to not ever hear of them, does kinda say something.

At any rate, if you can get Bridgestones, I would. IMO they offer some of the best ultra high performance tires I've used. Grip is fantastic (absolutely will not roll onto their sidewall), ride is good enough, and wear is unbelievable. Just my $.02

for what it's worth, we have a family friend that started and owns a very successful tire/suspension shop in virginia. he puts wynstar on most everyone that goes there. says they're a really good value. don't know if he puts them on sports sedans or not, but anyway, i'd think they'd be a decent tire.

my mom drives a ford windstar, any bit similar? Another bad joke, but I would definitely recommend Bridgestones. I can't say anything about the WynStars themselves because I don't know much about them. I have heard of them, but so few places around me stock the, that its hard to gather info. I do know tires well though as I have gone through a lot of them on my previous two cars...DO NOT GET DUNLOP unless you are getting a very high end Dunlop model...I know the stock Continentals that came with my BMW were EXCELLENT tires. They took a lot of abuse. For best value and performance combined, I think any Toyo, Yokohama, Sumitomo, and Kuhmo are really good bets.

As for harsh words, it was only a statement, not even necessarily negative. Your rebuttal wasn't really necessary. Cisco didn't put them down as a tire brand, it was more or less connotation of never hearing of them before. Its just the same as saying that Futura tires sound like they come from Pep Boys...Maybe you can find Wynstar tires at Kmart? Also, like we just had a huge discussion in another thread, this isn't a place for strictly factual information...A LOT IS BASED ON PERSONAL OPINION. I value these opinions. This forum is for fun as much as tech info, hence Cisco's sarcastic and amusing remark...I laughed...try to lighten up a little and get the Bosch +4 plug outta your ass

However, enjoy the forum and goodluck with finding your new tires! Let us know how those Wynstars perform and look for you, thats your opinion and helpful addition to the forum.
