Looking at getting new tires for my 2008 G6, 3.5 V6.

The factory Hankook Optimo H725A tires aren't good at all. I have the G6 base model, with the 3.5 V6 & 17" rims. These are the 2 types of tires are looking to get:

1- Continental ProContact, with EcoPlus Tech

2- Uniroyal Tiger Paw Touring


These tires good!? Anyone have any other idea's for tire's!?

Thank you for the additional information. A few more questions for you.

How many miles are you typically driving per year? What were your likes and dislikes with the H725A? What do you want your next set of tires to do for you.

Tires.

I travel around 10,000 miles a year or less. The Hankook tires are all around crap! I want a tire that's all in the lite or dark green, like on tireracks site. Good in wet, dry, snow & ice. Something that corners well to.

Look into the continental extremecontact DWS, or the General G-Max AS-03. Both tires are very nice all around tires. Another decent tire although it wears a tad bit quicker and you get some slight road noise is the Goodyear Eagle GT. I have experience with all 3 tires.

I got a set of kumho ecsta 4x to replace my awful OEM tires. For an Ultra High Performance all season tire I am very satisfied.

For what you are looking for out of your tires the Continental DWS is an excellent model to look into.

I look for long life in a tire. The crappy OEM tires on my 08 G6 went an incredible 82,000 miles and were still in pretty good shape when I took them off. Frequent rotation seems to be the trick.

Wow really?
My OEM firestone tires made it about 22,000 miles before they just didn't look safe.

I've done nearly 40,000 miles on my Kuhmo's and the tread still looks like new.
And that's with some track time and a lot of fun cornering

I'm looking into some new tires as well. Have no clue where to start. I live in Kansas, so the weather is always changing. I'd like some sporty tires if that even makes sense. Lol.

Something clean, high quality, and sporty!

2008 Pontiac G6 GT Coupe

Progression!

Re: Looking at getting new tires for my 2008 G6, 3.5 V6.

Your best bet. Is to indentify what you want in a tire and what kind of driving you do. There's a lot to consider. Road noise, fuel economy, tread wear, wet vs dry performance, snow too if applicable.

Once you get a good idea as to what you need you can really find the right tire to suite your needs.
