Best and Cheapest don't go together QUOTE=jocko91;14031041]Wife drives 100-150 miles per month. None on highways. At 80 years old will probably give car up in 2-3 years so don't need long tread wear warranty. What is best and cheapest tire to buy?[/QUOTE]
I just noticed on TireRack.com that the Firestone Destination LE2 is available in 235/55/20. I had them on my last vehicle (in 245/55/19) and really liked them - reasonably quite and comfortable, very good wet performance and decent snow traction (not as good as dedicated snow tires but better than any other all-season tire I've used).
$75 cheaper per tire than the Michelin Latitude Tour HPs that are the OEM tires.
