The Ody (see sig) now has about 17k on it. Right now, the OEM Michelin Primacy MXV4s will probably make it to 25k. I've been rotating them every 7.5k, but even then they are wearing like I would expect OEM tires to wear... FAST. Even though I can push them to 25k, I may end up replacing them sooner. We are expecting a bad winter (by VA Blue Ridge standards) and I may want to replace them before the snow hits. A good all season is good enough for the amount of snow that we receive here. If the snow gets too bad, I just take out the Audi instead of the Ody and use that awesome Quattro. So I am currently shopping for deals on 235/65R17 tires. Ultimately, this vehicle is transportation for my wife and godchildren, so I don't want to go with something of iffy quality. The tires I have been looking at so far are: High: Michelin MXV4 - I have never had a bad experience with a Michelin tire. I fully expected the OEM versions to wear fast, but I don't have doubts about a non-OEM set. Middle: Yokohama Avid Ascend - They seem to get great reviews and appear to be a very similar tire to the MXV4 at $40 less per tire. Dark Horse: Firestone Precision Touring - They get excellent reviews, great warranty and the price is right. So what say you about these choices? Any other tires I should be considering?
