    Appears to be a tire made exclusively for Walmart. Says made in USA. Sidewall feels flimsy in store. Claims 60,000 mile treadwear. Tread depth brand new did not impress me.
    (My newly acquired 09 has 2 tires that need to be replaced with something until I get a decent set of 4 later. I will be getting size 185/65R15. I live up north, so the tires will see 4 seasons.)
    Anyone had good/bad experiences with this tire?

    Edit: I can't post a link to the walmart page. It's Goodyear Viva 3 All Season Tire 185-65R15-88T

    I wouldn't trust it. If they made it for Wal-Mart then they're probably marketing it under a different name. Check tire rack and see I'd you can match it. I'd recommend the Vredesteins they're probably only a few bucks more.

    Viva’s aren’t terrible but they aren’t LRR either like the old Goodyear Integrity
