Odd selections - you have a very high end tire and then just an average tire... the MXM4 is a better tire for sure... if you are running an HS, why not a fuel efficient tire like the Bridgestone Ecopia?

Default Tires

Cant get them in my size 225/45/18. I've heard good things about the nitto. I just bought a set of michelin engery savers for our Prius and they are great and had michelins on our Infiniti and worked great. Just wanted to make sure , I didn't know much about the nitto brand until I researched it.

Thanks for the help

Did you take a look at the Toyo Versado Eco? Seems to fit your list of wants well - and is relatively easy on the wallet, Great tire that we have had every good feedback on.

Let me know if I can answer any questions, I'd be happy to help.

Thanks

The Michelin Primacy MXM4 is definitely one of the best tires out there and currently at $150 per tire in the 225/45R18 you need, it's a really good price. Just comparatively speaking the least expensive tires in this size start at $120/tire so for $30/tire more you get one of the best tires on the market, the extra $120 for the set is well worth it.
