  1. Thanks for your thoughts... In the past, I have been happy with Yohohama Avid H4 and BFG Comp/TA HR (Now called Traction/TA). Their T-rated versions are available in the size that I am looking for. I have never installed a set of T-rated tires before. I have no experience with them. Since everyone has posted postive comments on T-rated tires and noone has chimed in anything positive about either Sumitomo HTR200 or Firestone Affinity LH30, I am leaning towards Yohohama Avid T4's.
  2. Yes, generally speaking, H-rated tires tend to be a better quality than T-rated tires, for example stiffer sidewalls. I don't plan to be driving 125mph too often. But, I do a lot of sustained long distance driving in 90F degree weather. In the past, I have been happy with Yohohama Avid H4, BFG Comp/TA HR, and General XP2000 HR in a 70-series tire. Alas, all of these companies no longer make an H-rated tire in P185/70R14. My research shows that... Sumitomo HTR200 is classified as High-Performance, not High-Performance & All-Season like most other H-rated tires. Firestone Affinity LH30 is classified as All-Season, not High-Performance & All-Season like most other H-rated tires. Alas, even the new highly acclaimed T-rated Performance & All-Season Yokohama TRZ is not available in P185/70R14.
  3. Please Help. I have been very happy with Yokohama Avid H4 87H tires. However, H-Rated tires are NO longer available in my size -- P185/70R14. The tire outlets want me to purchase T-Rated Avid T4 88T tires. I know that I am not the only 185-70-14 guy left in this world. What brand/model tires are the rest of you using? I have found that Sumitomo has H-rated tires in my size... ...And they probably won't work out either. I wanted the HTR+, but they are only available in 50-, 45-, and 40-series. The SRIXON4 are only available in 65- and 60-series. The HTR200 is available in 70-, 65-, 60- and 50-series. http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires.jsp?tireMake=Sumitomo&tireModel=HTR+200 However, this is a high-performance SUMMER radial -- not all-season. There are times that I drive in the ice and snow. So far, my only options are: 1) H-Rated a) Firestone Affinity LH30 http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires.jsp?tireMake=Firestone&tireModel=Affinity+LH30 ContiEcoContact 3 Probably not available in the U.S. c) General Exclaim UHP Probably not available in 185-70-14 2) Downgrade to T-Rated a) BF Goodrich Traction/TA T-series Yokohama AVID TRZ Probably not available in 185-70-14 c) Yokohama AVID T4 d) Dunlop 3) Go low-profile with P195/65/R14 So what is everyone else doing?
  4. Well, the Sumitomo(s) probably won't work out either. I wanted the HTR+, but they are only available in 50-, 45-, and 40-series. The SRIXON4 are only available in 65- and 60-series. The HTR200 is available in 70-, 65-, 60- and 50-series. However, this is a high-performance summer radial -- not all-season. So far, my only options are: 1) Firestone Affinity LH30 http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires.jsp?tireMake=Firestone&tireModel=Affinity+LH30 2) Downgrade to T-Rated 3) Go low-profile with P195/65/R14
