Hi everyone! Been lurking here for almost a year now, and finally decided to make an account! It's finally time to replace my tires - it's definitely not something I've been looking forward to. Right now, I have 215/45R17 Lionhart tires (never heard of them before, the previous owner had purchased them), and am looking for a good replacement. I've read through multiple threads, including the LRR tires list, and have narrowed it down to two possible options: the Continental PureContact LS with EcoPlus and the Ecopia EP422+ tires in 205/50R17 sizes. My question is, is the extra money I would spend on the Ecopias worth it? I can get the PureContacts for $546 after a rebate, and the Ecopias are $675. That's a difference of about $130.
