Best : Michelin Defender & Yokohama Avid Touring S. Long lasting, comfortable, quiet. My car is currently on Defenders and my wife's van will get the Yokos due to past experience with her previous car. Our van has Michelin Primacys which were already on it when we bought it used in 2011. They are not worn out, but they turn 10 years old next year and they have a lot of small cracks on the sides. This is their last season. Worst : General Altimax *can't remember the exact name*, really noisy & Michelin MX4, OE tires on my car when new. Quiet, comfortable, but slippery and wore out FAST. On my oldest car, I wanted to test the cheapest of the cheap, so I went with Jinyu YH11 (pure Chinese product). They wear out very fast and there was not much thread to begin with (260).
