The 2010 Lincoln Town Car is a rear-wheel drive luxury sedan seating up to 5 passengers. The car offers a range of standard amenities including a 4.6 Liter Single Over Head Cam (SOHC) 16-valve V8 engine, carrying a 4 speed automatic transmission. The engine produces 239 HP and is capable of moving the car from 0 to 60 in approximately 8 seconds. The car carries 225/60 tires mounted on 17 inch multi-spoke aluminum wheels. Because the ratings of tires are typically subjective, there are no "best" products for the Town Car; however, Tire Rack offers an annual user survey that is helpful.
Rated #1 - Michelin Pilot Exalto A/S
The Michelin Pilot Exalto A/S is a reasonably priced all-season tire. The product is optimized for sedans, and its construction is oriented to middle-of-the-road performance allowing buyers to take advantage of good handling capabilities while offering a generally comfortable ride. Cost for the unit starts at $100 depending on reseller markup.
Rated #2 - Dunlop SP Sport Signature
The Dunlop's SP Sport Signature offers solid performance regardless of the environment and is a singularly technical product. This means that the buyer may have to give up some comfort in favor of performance. The tire's construction is biased toward hard driving, and offers a number of innovations that create good response regardless of the driving requirement. Cost for the unit typical starts at $90 depending on reseller markup.
Rated #3 - Bridgestone Potenza
Bridgestone's Potenza is oriented to the performance touring car market but the tire also fits nicely with the Lincoln. Its buyer ratings are good. Because of its construction, the tire might be a bit stiff for the more mature buyer, but if you want to add a bit of pop to your Town Car this is the way to do it. Cost for the unit typical starts at $110 depending on reseller markup.
