Hello, What is my best bet for "excellent" tires for my 04 v70 2.5T with 17" amalthea's?<p>The stock pirelli's on now need to be replaced, and I'm not a pirelli fan.<p>I want a good quality tire, that will also be good for next winter. I dont swap tires based on seasons,.......yet. (maybe as I get older, I will get wiser!?!?!)<p>If anyone has some goos suggestions, pls let me know.<br>-Rob <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/embeer.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: 2004 v70 2.5t w/17" amalthea's (04v70)

I personally like the Bridgestone Turanza LS-H or V rated tires. Do some comparison shopping on <A HREF="http://www.tirerack.com" TARGET="_blank">http://www.tirerack.com</A> We've had thes on both our 850 wagon and our current '04 V70 2.5T and love them. However, our tires are 16"on Mimas rims.

Try <B>Conti Extreme Contacts</B><br><B>GREAT</B> all weather performance tire for the money and in your size a real good performer. I had them on my AWD S60 Sport (17's) 235/45/17 and they were wonderful and quiet<br><B>MUCH better then the Bridgestones</B>

Conti Extreme Contacts:<br><A HREF="http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires.jsp?tireMake=Continental&tireModel=ContiExtremeContact&vehicleSearch=true&partnum=345WR7CEC&fromCompare1=yes&place=10" TARGET="_blank">http://www.tirerack.com/tires/...ce=10</A><br>Bridgestone Turanza LS-V:<br><A HREF="http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires.jsp?tireMake=Bridgestone&tireModel=Turanza+LS-Z&vehicleSearch=true&partnum=345ZR7TLS&fromCompare1=yes&place=12" TARGET="_blank">http://www.tirerack.com/tires/...ce=12</A><p>I would have to agree with you Jim on this one. The Turanza's have gone up $100 a tire since last year (and $90+ more than the Conti's) and they are not rated very highly in the snow....lucky for us we don't get much. <br>
