Depends on who you ask and what your driving is like.

As with any OEM tire, it's a balance of fuel, noise level, ride, handling, etc.

You can probably come up with other comparable tires that may better suit your budget or performance needs.

it is the P6 4seasons. In my experiance, they suck ass. I have had SEVERAL customer complaints about them being loud and not handling well (I work at NTB). Matter of fact, i had one customer come in with a brand new SAAB (<1000 miles) and get new tires to replace these.

I have never personally tried these tires (though i have driven an ST and was NOT impressed by the p6's) but I base most of my sales off of customer feedback and these tires have not been up to par.

I went with the Fuzino HRi's (made by Bridgestone/Firestone)
205/50/16

$64 each from TireRack

My local Discount Tire matched the price and beat it actually....I paid $59 a piece!

SUPER SUPER Quiet and grip really well on dry pavement & do great in the rain.
I bought them because they were priced very well & had great ratings on TireRack.
They also have 400 treadwear rating.

How and where are you driving the vehicle? Also, what are you looking for in your tires?
I was going to ask the same thing.

I cannot, however, reply with prices or anything because NTB is not a sponsor.
