    OK, no one answered my question last week about putting on truck SUV type tires. Well, I since found out that they don't fit and don't work and aren't even made in the CR-V size.

    So my question is: What are the BEST tires to put on our AWD CR-V here in the often snowy hilly roads of Pittsburgh? I have generally felt that Michelins are the best tire (although they cost twice as much), but it's not clear that they even make a tire that is right for CR-V.

    I currently have the Dueler tires that came with it and seem to be wearing at 10,000 miles. I do NOT want to put them on again. HELP! WHADUIDU?

    The other site has a whole thread devoted to tires. Some like Triplthreads, some like Yokohama Avids.. and so on. One guy just put some Cooper tires that are very "toothy"

    I am just watching sales to see what I can get. Sears has $50 off if you buy 4 Michelins, then I found that there is a $50 rebate on Michelin's web site, which may result in $100 off. I am thinking in lines of Pilot or Energy MX4.
  • sky23213sky23213 Posts: 296
    Yeah, very interested what you'll get. Please let us know, I'm looking at definitely Michelins, very fond of Hydroedge (have them on the Galant), but I read somewhere not the best choice for snow.
  • blueiedgodblueiedgod Posts: 2,803
    I might just buy slightly used, 11,000 miles, Traction T/A from a fellow CR-Ver from the other site for $160.
  • sky23213sky23213 Posts: 296
    Hmmm, not a fan of used when it comes to tires, even slightly. I have Traction T/As currently (yup, got lucky - car came with them new), hope will last us at least trough the winter (about 40K).

    2002 EX with 50,200 miles. Hard to believe, but my OEM's have just now gotten down to the bare minimum tread. I was one of the fortunate few who got the T/A's.

    I'm looking at the TripleTreads, Nokian, or Dunlop Signature. Right now I'm leaning towards the 'trips, even though they'll set me back $500.

    I'm looking for replacement tires for my 2005 CR-V; does anyone out there know what the quietest tire for this vehicle would be? I notice the road noise with the factory Bridgestones, it really doesn't bother us but since we are looking, we might as well shop for the best replacements.

    Thanks

    OK, I ended up buying four Michelin Hydroedge tires. I read a rating at the TIRERACK site and everyone gave the tires excellent ratings and comments. One, in particular, was what did it for me. It was from someone with an AWD Subaru Outback in Boston who swore by them for any and all driving (including New England snows). And they said they were at 40,000 or so miles and they still have 9/32 of tread! (Don't quote me on the exact numbers there....the point was they were wearing very very well).

    So, we'll see how it goes. I paid about $550 installed, out the door, including all taxes and nusance fees, at Sears. (Got new valve stems and balancing, but did not get the pricey "Road Hazard" thingie).

    Now check out Mischelin website for the additional $50 rebate.
  • daryll44daryll44 Posts: 306
    It appears that the rebate does not include the Hydroedge. Or is Hydroedge a subcategory of one of these (from their site):

    $50 Mail-in Offer
    Michelin is celebrating the summer driving season with a $50 offer for you. Buy 4 new Michelin® MX™ Series touring tires, and get a $50 mail-in rebate. Offer valid 7/1/06 through 7/31/06. Offer available on the following tires only: Pilot® MXM4™, Energy™ MXV4®, Energy™ MXV4® Plus, and Energy™ MXV4® S8.

    I just purchased a new CRV SE on 7-19 and after reading posts and talking to other CRV owners and driving it for two days I decided to replace my tires. I purchases a set of Goodyear assurance Triple treads 80,000 mile ( CR rated #1) for $550.00 out the door -$150.00 for my oem tires with the $50.00 rebate for a total of $350.00. No doubt about it a much quieter and smother ride. Thanks for all the direction and help from all the responses on the form

  • daryll44daryll44 Posts: 306
    Probably a good move. My approach was similar. I knew from both this board and from just general feeling that the OEM tires on my CR-V (bot May, 2005...now at 10,000 miles) were not the greatest. But instead of swapping them for credit...which I probably would have done had I found someone willing to give me credit...I drove them for 14 months then swapped them. I am guessing that the 10,000 miles on them was probably worth about the $150 that you got. And the new Michelin Hydroedge were about $550 installed....same as your price give or take. Personally I prefer Michelin to Goodyear, but it sounds like you also bot a premium tire.
  • mnfmnf Posts: 404
    Yes your right we both purchased a good tire that will help keep the noise down and last. I did have to call around to see if someone would give me credit most were NO and one other was 20.00 per tire. The Michelin X Radial DT is also a very high rated tire availble in there line up....

  • I need serious advice... I am in Canada and need a good all-season tire for my 2002 CR-V, that will handle basic city icy/snowy/winter conditions. Safety is my main concern. The tire shops I call are useless and are peddling whatever they have in stock. Someone recommended Pirelli P3000 and someone else Toyo Spectrum... anyone have any idea if these are good for my driving conditions?
  • db2db2 Posts: 10
    I am considering the above tire for my replacements for my 2004 CRV. Received great reviews on TireRack but I'm wondering if I'm missing something - any feedback would be GREATLY appreciated....Thank you!
  • mnfmnf Posts: 404
    I put on a set of Goodyear assurance triple treads on my new 06 CRV it made a differance on the road noise from the new stock tires. ... Good Luck....

    I put on the Michelin Hydroedge. They are expensive, but the handling was a lot better, and they are quieter than the OEM tires. Good wet weather handling as well.
  • db2db2 Posts: 10
    Sorry - I should have stated I live in Minnesota so have a lot of winter driving. The Honda dealership said the HydroEdge were great in rain, but not that great in snow/ice? Is the impression the Dueler Alenza's are not the best option? There is a $75 rebate on them for the next couple of weeks...any further advice is greatly appreciated! Thank you!
  • According to Consumer Reports, the top tire ratings are:

    #1 Goodyear Triple Treads
    #2 Michelin Radial X DT (available at warehouse clubs only)
    #3 Michelin Hydroedge

    I bought the Radial X DTs. They were $15 per tire cheaper than the other two. Plus, there was only 1 score point difference between the Radial X DTs and the Triple Treads. I figured $15 was enough to justify the 1 point. I've got 1,000 miles so far, and I love the tires. I'm so glad I wore down the OEM tires after 21,000 miles.

    Do not get the Michelin Pilots or the MXM4 or the MXV4. They are rated very low and not worth the $$$.
  • I live in Mpls. Check out Consumer Reports online and they rated tires. The Goodyear Triple Treads were first, but the Michelin X Radial DT's were second---only 1 point apart. I can get the Michelin DT's for $400 installed, liftetime warrenty, road hazard, etc thru Sept 30 while they have $50 off. The Goodyears are $100 more at Discount Tire Co(cheapest place in town I could find them), however they are only $450 when a sale starts on Octoober 2. All prices are with mounting, lifetime rotate, rebal, mounting, etc and MN sales tax of 6.5%.---for a 2005 CRV
  • I would also check out the consumer survey reults and the testing results on tirerack's site. Check out discount tire direct online and tirerack to see if saving the sales tax makes an online purchase worthwhile. I just purchased some tires from discount tire direct, had them sent to me (no sales tax and no shipping charge), and took them to the local Honda dealership for install on my vehicle. It was the best deal for me. Tirerack does charge for shipping. The local Discount tire store in your area may match the online cost of their online site, but I would try to get them to also reduce the cost by the amount of the sales tax. Good luck. Ralph

    I have the Goodyear Triple Treads on my 06 CRV that i put on just after I purchased (300 miles) it. Major differance from the stock tires so far very happy . They gave me (Discount Tire )$150.00 for my stock then there was a $50.00 rebate from Goodyear. Either tire should be just fine ...>>M
  • ace15ace15 Posts: 1
    I live in New England and currently drive an 03 CRV. Original tire size is 205/70-R15. From an estate sale I have a chance to buy 4 new Michelin X-Ice 205/60-R16 mounted on Honda rims for $125. Is changing tire and wheel size a no-no and possibly hazardous or would these tires give acceptable performance? Thanks for your advice.

  • sky23213sky23213 Posts: 296
    Well, I'm still deciding between Michelin Hydroedge and the Assurance Tripplethreads. Would any one have an opinion on which one is the quieter tire? I guess it has come down to this, since both are as good as it gets. I thought the OEM Traction T/As would get me through the coming winter, but the thread currently is only 4/32, and that at only 25K :(
    Thank You
  • db2db2 Posts: 10
    Hi everyone - thanks for all the feedback, I purchased the Goodyear Assurance TripleTreds and took a 200 mile roadtrip just after getting them put on, am quite pleased so far. I wasn't offered a rebate of $50 - I purchased mine from Sears, couldn't locate anything on-line, can someone point me in the right direction, or should I call Sears?
    Thanks!
  • I currently have a spare on the rear my CRV. I have been told that in order not to damage the Real-time four wheel drive I need to replace both tires in the back. What are my options at this time.
  • sky23213sky23213 Posts: 296
    Thank You for the hint on the October DiscountTire sale. Just put new Michelin Hydroedge at 26,300. Got both rebates, $50.00 from Michelin and $25.00 from DiscTire for using their card (also 6 mo no interest). I like their free tire rotation, will save me 40.00 dealer racket every 10K. I don't know if I'll use their balancing (they do "spin balance"), a minimum vibration at 60mph and over. Will use a trusted shop that does computer balance (Venburg Tire, just south of I-694 on Hwy61).
    Now I'm happy, no new tires for the next 4 years :)
    Well, maybe next year, but for the other car - also Hydroedge, looks like they'll last to about 100K :) :)
  • rrrrbrrrrb Posts: 5
    I replaced the factory tires at 35k miles with the Goodyear Triple-Treds. I replaced all 5 tires at one time.

    Discount Tires will match the TireRack prices.

    I have put 40k miles on these tires since and they still look practally new.

    Rotate your tires frequently, including the spare. The tires will last you many, many miles.

    Also, keep the right tire pressure in the tires.

    Honda should rethink tires for their CRV. I replaced mine at 6000 miles on a 2004 CRV and put on Toyo Open Country AT (205-75-R15). These are a good all weather tire and handle well in the snow. If you want a WINTER tire, go for Bridgestone Blizzak's. Check out Tirerack.com. These are a soft tire and AWESOME on snow and ice but you'll be very happy with them!
