 What are your favorite SUV Tires

Have to buy new tires for my Honda CRV, what tires do you like best. I have been doing some research and I have been getting many different opinions. Some saying that the old standbys like Michelin are not so hot.

 What are your favorite SUV Tires

About the only tires I run close to what you're looking for are Continental CrossContact UHP's.

I said "close to" because my SUV runs 295/40ZR20's that I think might nearly stop your CRV. Wink yeah right

At any rate, Continentals parent company, General is also the maker of tires I've had good results with on other vehicles. I have no complaints with their products.

I've also had very good luck with Cooper tires over the years.



Best of luck.

 What are your favorite SUV Tires

I'm not a big fan of Michelins. I discovered how thin the inner liner on those were when fixing flats in a tire store. The thin liner does help them run cooler, which makes them last longer, but it was a lot thinner than any other brand which makes me a bit uncomfortable. I've seen Goodyear play games with advertising vs. reality so don't buy them either. Firestone can make a good tire, they often just don't.

Lately I've been buying Toyo Wild Country A/Ts, and have been quite happy with them, but they may be a little noisy for your needs. We drive a lot of gravel so are looking for deep tread.

There is nothing like Nokians for ice and snow.

Probably not much help here....

 What are your favorite SUV Tires

For one of the most common and important consumer items, tire buying is not simple.

First you have to decide what you want because tire design is a compromise. You can have quiet, wet grip, heat resistance, high-speed stability, rolling resistance, smoothness, ice traction, snow traction, cornering grip, etc., but not all together because generally if a tire gives more of one characteristic it has to give less of another.

Then there's cost. Has anybody in history paid list price for one? Tire shopping is like going to an oriental bazzar.

Then there's sizing. When I got replacements for my first car there was one size for the 53 Chev. Now it's a major research project to get the optimal dimensions for what you want.

Installation? In the old days when the tread wore (and they sure did) the only question was reuse or replace the tube. Now I expect to have to revisit the installer because it's leaking at the rim or the kid didn't know about directional installation or how to handle wide mags.

Sorry I can't give you an answer rather than some grumpy generalizations but an easy and safe decision is to get what the factory put on.

Dennis I found good help at Consumer Report and there is a site that rates tires that also helped me that sells them direct to you. No idea their name.

For pickups I preferr Michelin. Found Uniroyal had a lot of flats and a tire dealer happened to mention that to me he found the strangest items in them. Seems to be something about their thread design. Which makes me ask who is Uniroyal's sister brand, is it General?

I think Firestone and Bridgestone are same company.

Murf I did not realize Cont. were a General product. Know they are rated well.

 What are your favorite SUV Tires

I've settled on some favorites depending on the application.

For High horsepower farm tractors Mchelen ended up being my favorite, but like all tire companys they do have a good grade and a cheapie. A good tire dealer will steer you thru the maze.

For SUV, Pickup and regular car tires Firestone still leads the pack, but again a reliable dealer will lead you thru the crappy grades to the ones you need. The Firestone dealer we use had been in busniess since like 1933 and now on their third and fourth generation of the same familys. They are one of the few places you can still tell the wife or kids to stop by for a set of tires and they don't take advantage trying to sell the Mrs. or kids something they don't need. I guess that's why they are still in business while some of the flashy dealers have folded.

I have used Cooper, but their dealers seem to have dried up.

Frank.

 What are your favorite SUV Tires

Thanks for all the input.

All the tire dealers around here were very pricey. I remembered that my Honda dealer had a buy 3 get 1 free on 4 tires, so I checked them out and they beat everyone else by a couple hundred bucks.

They had the Continental Cross Contact LX in stock so I went with that. I fully expected that the tire deal would be just the beginning and that they would tell me all the other stuff my car needed.

So after the inspection they recommended front and rear brakes, transmission flush, and differential refill. The price of that would have been $670, which I declined.

They were right though that that work needed to be done, so I started on the brakes today.

The deal on the tires besides the get one free included a free Nook Touch e reader, which my daughter needs so it was a great deal.

My experience with the one set of Continentals I have owned was very good and their reviews are generally very good so you probably did fine, especially with the deal. The dealer, huh? Whoda thunk?
