I've got the same, I experienced Feb/Mar winter with them- they go in the snow, just don't stop in the snow...I'll be equipping with some Blizzaks come fall. Wet pavement, no problem....with the recent major floods we had a couple weeks ago here in Toronto, no issues with hydroplaning and they have never broken loose on me, however I do have the AWD as well.majicb said:I have the st 17" rims equipped with the firestone destination. They have been ok so far in the month that I've had the vehicle and they were actually pretty good in the heavy rain we had a few weeks ago.
That rain that we had in Toronto was the worst that I've drove in here and I drove through at least 6 inches of standing water maybe more in some and the car tracked straight and didn't notice any hydroplaning at all. I'm not planning on running snow tires this year as I'm used to driving my rwd CTS with all seasons and I made out ok except for some situations. So I'm assuming the Terrain will be much better being fwd. I've used my dads Malibu in the winter and I've never had a problem with it. If I do get winter tires, Blizzaks will be the one as a lot of CTS owners recommended them as well. I have to admit though snow tires make a difference, its almost night and day, especially on a rwd car. So unless the Terrain is really bad in the snow then I won't bother with snow tires for now.Terrainguy1978 said:I've got the same, I experienced Feb/Mar winter with them- they go in the snow, just don't stop in the snow...I'll be equipping with some Blizzaks come fall.

I've always had very good results with any Michelin tires I've purchased in the past. I'll probably go this route when I wear out these Hankooks that came on the truck. Surprisingly enough I've been pleased with the Hankooks so far. They're very noisy on certain types of roads and they still have plenty of tread around 35K miles but just based on my experience of MANY sets of tires it's hard to find a better tire than Michelin.teetertotter said:18" Michelin Lattitude. 22,000 miles and seems hardly worn. Good in light snow and heavy rain storms at interstate speeds. Keep 38-40 PSI Cold. Expensive tire, but if these last to 60,000...I will buy the same. :notworthy:
I got 60K out of two sets. The SSEI was sold before we hit that mark but we had a lot of tread left at 40K and The HHR I use them for winter and have 4 winters on them so far and they have plenty of miles left on them.baggedmaro25 said:I have firestones now terrain only has 500 miles but out of all the tires mentioned goodyear seems popular. I have worked at discount tire for 7 years and have yet to see any triple treads reach their mileage. We have a saying in the stores good for a year. I would suggest Michelin but for the price I would do yokohama yk580s or nitto motivos. I have the nitto tires on my 20's on the terrain and have been very pleased so far but very new still.
Keep in mind I do not run them till they are to the tread indicators and few tires make the total miles as hard as I and the wife drive them. Both cars were supercharged and one is turbo so we can be a litter harder on them than on a Cobalt etc. Between Cornering, Launching and hard stopping we work them hard.baggedmaro25 said:k isn't bad but they are rated for 80k but you are correct in the traction aspect its what the tire was built for and it does perform in that aspect just always wears on the shoulders faster than it should. But hopefully the new triple treads which have been redesigned are better in that aspect.
