On paper they seem to fit the bill - the survey results seem positive also, not to mention they're over $40 less per tire compared with the Primacys. The only thing I can see in the specs that is different is the treadwear - it's a little lower.
I posted in the tire forum asking about feedback on these but no one as responded.
I've put Yokohama H and V's on a few family members cars. I found them quiet with reasonable performance. More so with the H series and these are less $$ too.
The Michelin's are ok, I just think that for the $$ there is a better tire. Mo-in-law has the Energy on her Accord and they are noisy. Keep in mind tires may have slight differences depending on the car where some may be quiet on one and noisy on another.
you can call me out all you want. I don't care. If you cant multi-task... sucks for you.
I think its pretty disrespectful to personally attack me though.
at least try to stay on topic.
good thread as i will need tires relatively soon.
In the mean time, i don't think anyone is personally attacking you, but criticizing what seems to be a pretty ignorant statement. It is not humanly possible to give 100% of your attention to driving while talking on the phone. Maybe 99% but not 100%. Just saying.
And in my opinion it has nothing to do with hands free or bluetooth or all that crap. It's your mind that is what causes accidents. When your mind is on a phone call you do not check your blind spots as regularly, don't maintain speed as well and a list of others.
This thread is a bit old but I thought I'd add to it what I feel might be useful info:
I think I have discovered the absolute cheapest way to buy tires, safely and quickly.
1. Get a "Bing" account, used to be called Microsoft Cashback. And of course you will want a Paypal account to link it to. Being that both are free, should be easy for all members.
2. Do a basic search in Bing Cashback for something, anything really that will yield a "Search for it on eBay" link at the right side.
3. Once in eBay, notice the Cashback icon at the top, usually it is around 8% or so. So long as you see this, you are effectively shopping at an 8% discount.
4. Dig up a seller who sells tires on eBay. My go-to is without a doubt, Discount Tire Direct. You can search by brand, or size, or whatever you would like. Discount Tire Direct ships for free, so that's a bonus.
5. The tires should be very, very cheap compared with local stores, and since there is no tax typically, and shipping is free typically...you should end up with a sweet total price. Further, your cashback money will come to you in 60 days after you purchase them, virtually automatically.
I actually did this with my head unit, wheels, tires, and some other goodies...and the cashback coming to me is in the hundreds of dollars. More money to mod, I say!
