    I need some new tires real soon but was wondering what kind of tires to buy. Nothing special, just decent tires (all season, I guess). I've been told to get them from tiretrends.com. Is there a difference between brands? Toyo, Dunlop, BFGoodrich, Bridgestone, etc? I'll probably check some other places tomorrow just to compare prices.

    BTW, if it matters, I have a '97 Integra (stock) and it currently has Dunlop tires on.

    Any info is much appreciated. Thanks guys:bigthumb:

    Every tire is different, and they'll all perform differently.

    It depends what you're using it for.

    I'm just using it for everyday driving. Nothing special. A full tank will usually last me roughly about a week. So about 450km a week. (don't know the conversion to miles). I live in Vancouver, BC so basically I drive in rain or sun. I'm not worried about snow because we don't really get any. Here's all the info that's on my tires:

    -treadwear 420
    -traction a
    -temperature a
    -p205/50r15 84h m+s (do all these numbers have to be exactly the same when I buy the new ones?)
    -dunlop
    -sp sport a 2
