2006 Corolla CE Tire suggestions

The stock tires on my corolla are the goodyear integrity tires. The tires are in my opinion sub-par performance. I spin my tires anytime it gets wet out even in 2nd gear. The traction is terrible for braking in the rain also. I also had to stop fast to avoid another accident and ended up bumping the trailer hitch on a f350 in-front of me. Well anyway I need some new tires and looking for some decent handling tires that have good wet traction. I need a good all around tire for a decent price. Any suggestions would be great.

I just drove home on the stock tires on my '05 corolla in the rain. It was a scary experience. Anyone have any suggestions here?

Toyo Proxies are awesome, but I think they cost a bit.

I was looking at tires online and came across some Yokohama tires for $80. Tell me what you think.

I put a set of Goodyear Assurance Triple Treads on my g/f 05 S. There definitely awesome in the wet. I also put them on a friend's 02 Accord and she loved them. www.tirerack.com has them for $96/tire.

I have a red Corolla CE 2005, came with Goodyear integrity tires 185/65/15, replaced it right away, with Yokohama Avid TRZ 195/65/15, I have the same problems with stopping, with the rain we have here in the West Coast, British Columbia. Consumer Reports' gave a high rating on the Yokohama Avid TRZ.

That's right. Those are the only tires I'll buy now. I got 4 Toyo Proxes4 for 300 at Autobacs.

I would go with Yokohama Avid TRZ's they work Great. Also Continental Conti Extreme Contact tires are great. Those worked great on my 5.0 Mustang w3.90 gears so they should be champs on a Corolla!!!!!

You can't beat these tires in rain and they work very well on ice and snow.

Yup .... same complaints here with my wife's '05 S ...... the stock tires absolutely svck out loud in the rain/wet, can't wait to replace them (although I'm a cheap bassturd, and won't replace them until they're worn out ) Shall keep posted tire recommendations in mind, for sure. It's scary, the difference between driving her 'Rolla in the rain and driving my '92 Celica in the rain - I feel completely comfortable driving at speed in the wet in my vert.....she slid into a curb and popped the front tire off the rim 2 weeks ago on a rainy day (luckily, no car/wheel damage, and I was able to just re-inflate the tire and all is well....luckily.)
I have no idea why Toyota chose those crappy tires as oem........ I guess they have long tread life and give good mpg ?? Because they aren't particularly good at the important/fun parts of driving, i.e grip !!!

We haven't had the chance to experience them in the snow and ice but looking at the siping, they should be great.

Don't be cheap when it comes to a love one's safety. If you love her, replace the tires!

I purchased 4 new Michelin X Radial DT tires from Sam's Club. Very happy with them. They were rated #2 after the Goodyear Assurance Triple Treads by Consumer Reports (for All Season tires). I paid $370 for all 4 (there was a $60 instant rebate in Sept when I got them). Plus you get free rotations and balancing for number of miles the treads are guaranteed. Yes, the Goodyear Assurance Triple Treds are supposed to be the Shizzle! But on the pricey side.

My daughter has a 2003 Corolla with 185-65-15 tires that are pretty worn. She lives in Chicago and is home in WV until next week. She would like to get tires that are better in Chicago winters. I've looked at Sams Club, Walmart, and Sears. So far the choices for all weather tires are Michelin Weatherwise II (Sears only), Goodyear Eagle G58 and H2, and BF Goodrich TA and TA Pro. I've read bad things about the BFG tires. Does anyone have experience with the Michelin WWII or Goodyear Eagles? I have Goodyear American Eagles on another car and like them, but there seems to be a huge variety of Eagles. Sams Club offers Mich X DT mentioned here but only on special order which might not arrive in time. Out of these choices, I'm leaning to the Mich WWII but read in one review these are inferior to the Mich X. Consumer Reports hasn't reviewed either of these. I would appreciate any suggestions.
