Default 99 Camry LE 4 cylinder

I have two questions about my 1999 4 cylinder Camry LE.

1. If I have the rear defroster on, and I turn on the radio, I get a garet
deal of static from the radio. Turning the rear defroster off reloves the
static. Any idea on how to remedy this?

2. Any suggestions for a set of all season tires for the car, we plan to
keep it for several more years. We live in Massachusetts.

Thanks,
Phil

Phil, I don't know about your question #1, but I'm happy to recomment
Goodyear Weatherhandlers (which I have on my '97 Camry. You might inquire
about them as to whether they're really "snow" or "all weather" tires, but
they've worn superbly on my car. going on 50K miles and the tread is still
deep and sharp. Hope this helps.

I have a 97 Camry and my radio antenna is integrated into the rear
window, just like the rear defroster. I suspect you have a frayed wire
for the defroster in the wiring harness that makes it up to the rear
window or a bad contact. When you turn on the switch it completes the
circuit and interference is transmitted to the antenna wires that run
right along the defroster wires.

Try wiggling wiring harnesses and look over the place where they are
close to each other on or near the rear window.

Check tirerack.com

My preference is for Yokohama AVID TRZ

A while ago I put a set of Michelin X-1's on, and got superb service
for 84,000 miles. The X-1 is discontinued, but the dealer sold me
Harmonys as a replacement; so far, they seem very much the same.

The slightly more expensive HydroEdge appears to be more of a rain tire.
