I found this on the web, it looks like Firestone will supply all Caliber Tires. Any thoughts? I can't find any specs on them anywhere.

Firestone® brand Affinity™ T4™ and Firestone brand FirehawkTM GTA03™ tires will be found on the new 2007 Dodge Caliber, a five-door vehicle that combines a sporty coupe-like profile with the strength, stance and functionality of a sport utility vehicle.
Bridgestone Firestone North American Tire, LLC (BFNT) will supply DaimlerChrysler’s Dodge Caliber with the Firestone Affinity T4 in size P215/60R17 95T and the Firestone Firehawk GTA03 in size P215/55R18 94T.
The Firestone Affinity is a T-speed rated, all-season touring original equipment tire and the Firestone Firehawk is a T-speed rated, all-season performance original equipment tire.

Found the Firehawk GTA-03 tires on tire rack. They were under high performance all season. Here's a link

http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires.jsp?tireMake=Firestone&tireModel=Firehawk+GTA-03

BTW, they are the LOWEST rated HPAS tire that they sell. Notice the "would buy again" number? 2.5 out of 10. These tires are pieces of SHIT. I'm going to buy a set of Avon Tech M550 A/S when the OE tires wear out. (which wont take long according to the tread life number of 4.5)

Also, Tirerack has absolutly NO tires in the 215/55/18 size. That doesn't make me feel any better about getting decent tires...
Getting the EXACT same tire size isn't extremely important. Just gives you a good excuse to buy tires and wheels.

I prefer Goodyears (because they were the only USA tire company... don't know if that's true anymore).

You are correct, not a single tire in that size on their website. I am having trouble finding the 215/60/17 (Caliber SXT) as well. Tire Rack lists 5 or 6 in that size. Why did DCX choose a rim size with so few tire options? doesn't make sense.
It also has to do with the tire height and width. Makes me wonder if these are unique-to-Caliber tires. I bet they will use the same tire on the new Jeeps... in which case it will only be a short while before all the tire companies have a good stock of these tires.

Also wonder what the quality is on these tires. If they don't rate then I'll trade them as fast as possible.
