Are these OK for a 2006?


I need two new tires & the ones on it are Sumitomo 195-65-15's

The Continentals seem to get decent reviews & have a 80,000 miles tread warranty. We are in south Georgia, USA - so they are running in the heat most of the year, and mostly 55-75MPH highway miles.

$93.74 each mounted, plus tax.

Walmart says they will only install tires that match the official ratings - are these cool for the 2006 Prius, please?

I think you should have gotten enough recommendations about now. I'll just say that you should most definitely scout around your area and do your comparisons to see how much tire dealers around your area are selling for. What we may have bought in our own home town may be different from what you can get in your area. I would actually suggest getting tyre and rim insurance while you're at it so you won't have to worry too much about price the next time you need to replace your wheels!
