'05 Deville, '03 DTS, '84 Town Car, (past: '01 Deville, '97 Town Car, '79 Deville)
I have a 2003 Deville DTS and its come time to replace the tires. I was wondering if there is any specific brand that fellow Cadillac owners recommend. I have read a lot of information regarding the "tire shimmy/vibration issue" from 60-70mph and that the general consesus is that it almost always has to do with the tires. I did in fact have this vibration issue myself and it drove me nuts. Then somehow for reasons unknown about 6 months ago the problem mysteriously went away and has not been noticed since. Its ironic how once the tires become worn there is no vibration or shimmy anymore. I am not looking forward to spending $1000 on 4 new tires but I am concerned that if I buy cheaper tires this car may have a hissy fit going down the highway. I've read so many horror stories on these Devilles and their tire vibration issues. The two brands I currently have in mind are the Michelin Primacy MXV4 and the Goodyear Assurance ComforTreads. If anyone has had any experience with these brands or have used a different one please let me know. In case you didn't know the tires are P235/55/R17. I really don't care too much if the car handles like a sports sedan. I would've preferred a DHS because I like the softer floatier traditional Cadillac ride so my main concern when it comes to tires is quietness and comfort.
