    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.

    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

    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?

    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 $$$.
