    Whitewalls

    After promising myself that I'd keep a closer eye on my tire wear..I did happen to notice that my front tires are getting pretty worn out. I've been searching on the internet & making calls and can't find whitewall tires anywhere. One place did offer to special order some..but for almost twice what I was hoping to pay. Sears had a set they could order in..but they looked pretty cheap and were described as "entry-level" tires? Not sure what that's suppsoed to mean..but I do know being that we have a good variety of weather conditions here, I am not at all interested in "practice" tires.

    Any ideas where I can go to find reasonably priced whitewall tires for a 2004 base deville?

    Re: Whitewalls

    The only fairly widely available whitewalls for the Roadmasters (and Broughams) as it's an odd size is the Hankook Mileage Plus and the Kumho Solus. I have a new set of both, one on each of my RM wagons.

    They're fairly similar -- can't really tell the difference. They're OK tires, they weren't too high -- 80-90 each, maybe? (It's all gotten lost in the resto money I've dumped into these wagons.)

    Tirerack.com, however, doesn't show these in the size for an 04 Deville. There is a Continental ContiProContact that has a narrow .5 white stripe, but it doesn't show the striped side, only the blackwall.

    Tirerack.com has a Dunlop SP 60 that has a little wider whitewall. There is a Goodyear Assurance Comfortred that has the .5 Whitewall, and shows it -- kind of looks like a Vogue....blech. Michelin Energy LX4 also has the .5 stripe...as does Michelin Symmetry.

    If WW is the priority, based on what Tirerack has, I'd go w/the Dunlops. However, an 04 Deville IMO really doesn't need them. It's a modern enough design to use blackwalls. I wouldn't ever put WWs on my '95 Concours and it's 10 years older...

    Re: Whitewalls

    Thanks...I did just decide to go with the regular blackwalls...besides I was always bad at keeping the white stripe cleaned anyway so half the time they looked like blackwalls anyway

    Re: Whitewalls

    Oh well..maybe next time in another 80000 miles when my new ones with black sidewalls wear out. I know it's a subject of debate..but I do think a thin white strip looks classy.

    Just as well that I saved $400 from the cost of the whitewalls because as it turns out what I thought was an annoying rattle from a loose exhaust hanger actually turned out to be a broken shock absorber
