Okay so the oem tires are still on my cruze at 41000 miles and the front ones are getting rather bald. I have noticed quite a bit of spinning recently when I hit the gas so I'd like to change that. Everyone argues that new tires should go on the rear for safety reasons but it seems to me that the only time there is a benefit to having the new tires on the rear is in rainy conditions. I live in the middle of a desert so I am really not concerned about that. The rear tires actually have quite a bit of tread on them as well. Yes yes I should have rotated them but I work 12 hours a day 6 days a week and I really didn't even think to rotate them. I am considering the continental extreme contact dw 225/55R16 because I want the best traction I can get. Does anyone have experience with putting 225s on a cruze or with the continental tires mentioned? I can get 4 of them shipped for $415.00 plus $63.00 for installation etc. Suggestions welcome

Ok I believe I've made up my mind.
After the $30 instant discount and a $70 rebate these tires come down to roughly $380 for 4. These are designed more for comfort than high performance but the savings got me thinking "how much traction do you need with less than 200hp". I think these will be a great replacement for the sh*tty Firestones that came on the car.
