    Call Tire Rack and talk to their sales folks. They will ask you about how you drive, around town or highway, what you normally carry in the way of passengers or other weight, etc. etc. and then they'll give you some suggestions. They have good prices, a good selection, and good service.

    Tires and cars are like whiskey, women, and guns: Everyone has their own, unshakable opinion.

    You asked; I happen to like the Cooper CS4-V. Quiet, sticky, long wearing. Incredible in rain, OK in snow.

    IMHO;

    Michelin Primacy MXV4, had them on two S Class Merc Benz. Good tread life, quite on the highway and decent in the snow.

    I would recomend them to anyone with a full size car.

    I just put a set of the Michelin Primacy MXV4s on my 2007 DTS. I am very happy with them. They give a very quiet and comfortable ride. They are not cheap, but worth it.

    I've got the Michelin X Green MXV4 Plus and I am quite satisfied with them. They are okay in snow, but that is not something you will have to deal with in Hawaii.

    All seasons are a jack of all trades but master of none.

    Run winter and summer tires. Thats what I do.

    I put the Michelin Primacy MXV4 on my 2007 DTS. Very pleased. Excellent ride and handling. Surprisingly good in snow. After 8,000 miles, they still look new.

    Got the same tires on my 2006 DTS and they ride smooth and have no problems. I've put around 50'000 kms on them so far.

    As an additional note, If you do a lot of highway driving, I would strongly suggest you spend a few extra $$ and have them "road force" balanced. I find it is well worth it.

    Re: what are the best tires to get?

    I have been following this thread for a while now and although I have had my set of (goodyear eagle ls tires) a relative short time I think I should add a comment.

    It is maybe as important as to what brand /make tire but what is it that you want/need it to do. Tires have a shelf life they will age just sitting on the shelf. There is a code on the tire that will tell you when and where it is made. How many miles will you put on a tire? adjust your tread wear rating accordingly a 10 year old tire will be (old) no matter how much tread is left. also performance do you need a 112 mph tire or a 140 mph tire.

    As to what I know about my Goodyears very smooth, quiet to me may be noisy to someone else, Rain I do know rain 4 people in the car going to the airport nastiest rain I have driven in recent memory mostly interstate stop and go in the city, car pulled in front of me had to stop fast, people in the car remarked how good the Cadillac was, 4 hrs of hard rain dont want to do it again.

    I have about 5000 miles on them they still look good they still hold air and lots of tread left.Mike
