2000 235/55/16 Futura GLS tires
Good below 30K miles, they are cost effective compared to others.
After 30K Miles they go away and in a Camaro that handles well, it is very pronounced. Also, I live in the North East and it seems that these tires do not like the cold, especially cold and wet weather.
Tires had less than 20,000 miles when I bought my 2000 Camaro V6 Coupe. I have put 13,000 miles on the car/tire in one year. Tires felt and drove great until they went over 30,000 then they fell off drastically. Wet traction, ride, feel, the cold and/or hot weather really have a different effect on these tires. In the heat they feel and are have good handling, in the cold they ride and feel terrible. Now that they have over 30,000 miles the rear traction has gone away tremendously from a standing start. I have not pushed them in the wet because I like my Camaro too much to trust the tires now. The strange thing about them is this; they don’t build that much air pressure even after highway driving @ 65 or 70. Normally a tire will build a couple of pounds of pressure, these don't? If you run them at 30 PSI cold and go on a long highway trip your actually wearing them out!

I have 4 cars and I have used every type of Goodyear, Bridgestone, I hate Dunlop tires, they are worse. Goodyear has a good tire most types, it is to bad they are such a rip off with their prices.
