So I've had the kr 21's for about a year and a half now and have no complaints. They handle good and are quiet on the highway? My question is should I replace the two front tires or rotate them? I had an alignment done twice but never balanced or rotated. The driver side tire looks good but the passenger side is wearing on the outside. Back tires look like new. Should I rotate the back tires to the front or just get two new ones? If I replace the two tires should I get the same tire or could I get a different brand and not experience any issues?

Well ive replaced my tires again on my aztek. I went to mavis and went with Westlake 215 70r16. So far they seem pretty quiet while driving. Forgot how it felt to drive with a new set of tires with an aligment. I purchased the optional road hazard that includes free tire rotation so I have no excuse not to have them rotated. If any has had these tires before let me know what your experience was like.

I just put new westlake tires on my travel trailer.  They were a good price, had good reviews and are wearing well so far.   The tires that came with the trailer were junk- Vail brand.  We're wearing so poorly I didn't feel safe towing.  The tires were shot after three years and only about 3500 miles.   
I have about 1000 miles on the new Westlake tires and they still look brand new

Hello folks.  Newbie here.  I have a 2001 FWD with Traction control.  It has 215 70 15 and I really want to beef up the tires so I can get off road a little more and just make it look bad ass:)  I read the threads and went to the link but am still lost.  My question is.  Without upgrading my rims to 16 what is the biggest tire I can mount on my rims?  It handles really well now but im willing to take on a little sloppiness as it is a pleasure machine for me.  My dad has a 2003 with 16 and my Mom and him luv it!  Looking to get tires ASAP as its starting to rain here in Vancouver and I hit Whistler allot and need some tread.  Thanks I  advance I appreciate any info.  Cheers.

You could mount 33X10.50 tires on your 15" rims... They will never fit on the Aztek though. You aren't going to be  able to get a lot of lift just by changing tire size. Remember that if you move to a tire that is 1" taller than what you have, it will only pick you up 1/2 inch. The other 1/2 inch is on the top.

Other challenges you may have are an inaccurate speedo and a loss of torque. you could pick up a set of factory 16" wheels pretty cheap on Craigslist - Probably not Aztek specific wheels, but many Pontiac, Buick, Oldsmobile and Chevrolet wheels will fit as they share a lug pattern. (I believe it is 5x115)

Now, if you are willing to fabricate a lift kit and regear, the sky is the limit!

Here is a Tire Chart Size and Speed Calculator. Wanted to post because I thought it might be helpful to some.
