Living on the Gold Coast we obviously never see snow here, so I guess I will never know how they perform in the snow. I guess I will never have to use my wiper de-icer as well my friends laugh at me when I tell them I have a wiper de-icer.Magic Marker said:Agreed. When it's time for tires, I need to find a better all season that does well in snow. The Eagles aren't that great.
I just bought new Michelin Energy's for mine. The Goodyears had 39k on them and were starting to crack and stiffen (probably a factor of the Arizona summer heat), although the wear markers were well within good tread life. I notice a much quieter ride now, but still believe there may be a bushing/suspension problem. Had four difference service places look at it and got virtually four different opinions. They all think the sway bar bushings are OK, which has been an issue for lots of folks. However, they all vary on what they think the bumpy ride might be (control arm, struts, engine mounts, etc.). I had the 4-wheel alignment done as well, but still the car does not ride like it did when new :-(Hum said:I have over 40,000k's on my Tribeca, and still have half tread left. That's awesome, I have the Eagle LS2 on the car, is that the same as everyone else. I find them really quiet on the road as well. What kind of life are you guys getting out of your tyres?
You would be less impressed when you had something to compare them against...I am glad they have worked well for you but there are much better all season tires out there.Hum said:Thought it was time for an update, you guys won't believe how many km's I have on my tyres. The Subaru dealer said he has never seen our tyres last as long. The Tribeca is now 3 years old and I have 95000 km on the car, still with the original set of Goodyears. I gotta say I'm impressed. I probably still have about 15% tread left so I will crack the 100,000 km mark.
I do alot of h/way driving for work, some days 600k's so I guess that has helped. I'm definately sticking with the same tyres when it's time to replace.
