Hey all,

The previous owners of my escape told the dealer when they traded it in to put new tires on it (it had the stock Continentals, which the previous owners told me they had some serious cupping issues with, and replaced them with some Goodyears (i dont know wht kind) and they didnt like them either). Anyway the dealer put some chinese offbrand tires called Pegasus Advanta SUV on it and they are extremely loud over 45mph. The tires are rated snow tires and seem to be heavy. The upside is they have excellent wet traction (duh, there snow tires). Downside besides the noise is the so-so dry/gravel traction.
They are 235s but are tall. and have only 200 miles on them.

Has anybody here heard of the Pegasus tires?
What tires are best for the escape for economy and noise level?
thankz!

You couldn't give me these. I just don't trust the quality control of Chinese companies...

agreed, they could be the best tires in the world and I'd rather buy North American/South American, just because they do the cheap labor thing that's my issue.
