Great Scion tC Tires

Friday, February 22, 2013 by Steve Huffman

Toyota has a hit with their Scion brand and the tC is one of their most popular models. What's not to like? This sporty little coupe has got great styling and is a lot of fun to drive for not much money. Many tC owners are pretty particular about their ride and this includes their tires and wheels.

The most common sizes for the tC are 215/45R17 and 225/45R18. Popular tires for this vehicle tend to fall in either the Ultra High Performance All-Season or Ultra High Performance Summer category.

One of my favorite all-season tire choices for the tC is Continental's ExtremeContact DWS. This tire has been one of our best sellers for many years. It offers great handling, traction in all seasons and looks great on a Scion. Visible letters molded into the second rib from the outboard shoulder alert drivers of the tire's performance levels. A visible "DWS" indicates the tire has sufficient tread depth for dry conditions, as well as wet roads and light snow. After the "S" has worn away, the remaining "DW" indicates the tire only has sufficient tread depth for dry and most wet road conditions. And after the "W" and "S" have both worn away, the remaining "D" indicates the tire has appropriate tread depth for dry conditions only.

If you want to find a great value option for the tC, look at the Kumho Ecsta 4X. This Ultra High Performance All-Season tire does very well in just about all conditions. It provides a sporty ride for those you want to forget about the weather forecast. The tire combines responsive handling, capable cornering and year-round traction for dry, wet and wintry conditions, including light snow.

Are you looking to increase wet and dry traction while giving your vehicle a kart feel? Check out the Bridgestone Potenza RE760 Sport. This summer tire option maximizes sport driving pleasure without abandoning treadwear. Unlike the other two options, this tire isn't intended to be driven in near-freezing temperatures or through snow.
