    Did a search and nothing popped up recently in regards to what the best all round tires for our Prius these days. Im milking a set of 2013 Toyo's thru the summer here in Oregon and will need something to replace them, i drive it as my daily commuter briskly at times. We dont get much snow and besides a have a 4WD Tundra for those occasions. At the moment with rebuilt battery im getting 53-54 mpg summer and 46-48 winter. Just looking for something good all round. Recomendations?

    SM-G960U ?

    Curious who did the rebuilt, and what your average MPH is?

    Recently purchased Bridgestone Ecopia EP150 88T from an ebay seller for $62/tire including shipping. Very smooth ride and much better gas mileage than General Altimax tires. Just my two cents.

    For your driving, Yokohama Avid Ascend GT would probably be a good fit. According to Tire Rack testing, it handles well in both dry and wet road conditions.

    Rebuilt it myself combining the best cells from three batteries after load testing in car . Let the car do the balancing. Had one cell fail after a year which I replaced with a good spare id saved and kept charged on bench. Still doing well a year on

    Average MPH is around 50
