Tires are garbage
By cfeather on


2008 Scion xD 4dr Hatchback (1.8L 4cyl 5M)


Research this carefully. The Goodrich tires that came on this vehicle new are garbage. Had to be replaced at 24 K. But there are only 2 manufacturers who make a tire for this car. Both are garbage. So what good is reliability, fuel efficiency, etc. if the tires are failing? New tires (Dunlop) were $600 at dealer cost. Wheel bearing went out on my XA at 32K, so I have that to look forward to next! GM parts used on these cars, so this is to be expected.

True statement. However, almost all tires that come with new vehicles are garbage. All season tires are just not great in general. Better to choose a more expensive all weather tire (there is a difference) or have summer tires and/or winter tires. Best thing to do: buy the car and have new tires ready to be installed on them and sell the brand new tires that came stock on the car on craigslist or eBay. You will end up spending more money but then you get way better tires.
