need opinions on good all season M&S tires. Anyone ever heard of the Sumitomo brand? They have the HTR which seems to be good. Unfamiliar with them, though. There's the General Altimax, but it looks like a minivan tire. What about Kumho? FWIW, the best tires I ever had were the Goodrich KDWS, but they are no longer made and there are no Goodrich tires in the OEM size.

Whatever tires you go with, DO get them "road force" balanced. Might have to do some searching for a place that does it, and it is a bit expensive, but well worth it on both counts. Results are ultra smooth ride, and no rough patches as the suspension hits resonance as the classic Aurora is prone to do.

Goodyear eagles are what was stock according to the brochure. Although ive heard Michelin v-rated was on the autobahn...I have hankook optima's and cooper weathermasters for winter...second hand and with patches and plugs but they look nice cleaned up lol
My '98 that I had a few years ago (may she rust in pieces) had v-rated Michelin Energy tires. They were great. My '95 had 'HanKraps' on it when I got it. They were terrible. I was glad to get rid of them. I had Coopers on my Bonneville and the last LSS I had and they rode and handled great. I realize those H-body cars were almost a thousand pounds lighter than the Aurora, but they were the same size tires as go on the Aurora.
