I need to get some tires for my 17s. I want to buy tires that will provide a quiet smooth ride. Basically, I don't want to feel every bump on the road.

well the oem size is 215-45-17 you can get a larger sidewall with 225-45-17 that may help reduce some noise,,,,,also if you pick a "all season" tire versus a "sport" tire the tread will last a little longer as well.

Yeah, I know what tire size to get. But different tire brands have different characteristics. So was wondering what brand of tire to get.

Has anyone ever used GOODYEAR ESSENZA TYPE R tires?

Toyo Proxes 4's

I hated them, you'd probably love them. I like to feel all the bumps.

They were fine, just that the person I used to get the tires from shut down his business. I may get them from someone else though.

I had Toyo Proxes 4 's on my Tib and loved them. They were a lot quieter and smoother that the original Michelins. They were wearing better too... when I traded the car off, they still looked new with 15K miles on them.

Uneek, give me a call and I will be able to get you the pricing. I carry a wide variety of tires in stock. On my Accent I run the Toyo Proxes 4, they have really good grip, and are really good in the rain. I have had some customer's that run the Goodyear F1's and tell me that they are great, but they wear out real fast and are a lot more expensive than the Toyo tires. Call me and I will see what I can do, or drop me a e-mail brian@wheelwarehouse.com

I'll have to agree with the killer grip although the sidewalls get kind of soft when they warm up, hence why I was so surprised at how well they handled at high speeds. Not even a little slip even though it was raining pretty hard.
