Next payday, the 15th, I'll be buying four new tires for my truck. The tire size is 215/65 15 so I'm going with the Goodyear Viva 2 tires ($73.00 at Wal Mart) which advertise LRR characteristics. Anyone have any experience with these tires or can they recommend a better LRR tire in this size for the same or less money?
I've dealt with several sets of the viva/2s. Overall its a decent tire. Pros would be 44psi allowed, decent wear rating, and bargain price. Cons would be not the best tread compound, kinda wimpy sidewall(I blew a nearly new one on my saturn), buying from walmart, and unknown origin. My mom has them on her astro and they handle fine. However I personally went for the mich harmony's, but I wouldn't recommend harmony's for a truck. I find you get what you pay for in tires and generally there are no real exceptional bargains.
