Happy Looking for tires for the Vue, got me to this forum!

Our family currenty has 3-2005 AWD 6 cyl Vues. We love Saturn, but we did not like the tires(Bridgestone Duellers) that came with the Vue. Trying to find replacement tires was difficult because of the size! I read some of the forums comments on tires for the Vue and came up with a Cooper Lifeliner SLE,70K Tread which I bought for my car. If they work better then the Bridgestones I will buy them for the other two. Has anyone else had these tires before? I'll keep you informed as the miles progress.

Welcome to the boards!!!

A few have used the Coopers, and so far I've only seen positive reviews. I believe Michelin has finally produced a tire in the 235 size.

How many miles are on your tires?

You can also consider slightly changing the tire size. 215/65-17 are pretty close in diameter, and has a few more options.

Default Re: Looking for tires for the Vue, got me to this forum!

Suggest visiting TireRack.com. The best part of this site is the reviews that have been written by folks who have a particular brand/model of tires and can usually find them on a similar vehicle. I have purchased several sets of tires from TireRack and never disappointed.

I posted this in a Vue Tech thread by mistake, but here is my experience so far:

"I put Cooper Lifeliner SLE 235/60R17s in my 04 AWD about 3 weeks ago. So far I love them - much more quiet than the OEM Duelers."

I'll add -> I have the crappy GM radio w/XM. I used to have to crank it to hear Opie & Anthony over the tire noise, but now I can hear their sillyness just fine!

Michilean LX4's are superior to the Dulers. They have a 500 A A rating .vs a 360 B B They come the exact size as the OEM and they have a $50 rebate on a set of 4. Look at mavistire.com for a link to the rebate. I missed the rebate but got 4 insta;;ed and balanced for $96 each. They ride better and it rained near me today and they were excellent.

I personally never had any problems with my Dulers on my 03. Got 40,000 miles out of them and never had a problem with water,snow or road noise.

Agreed. That's what I'm using on my Vue and I'm quite happy.

good to hear about the miches- our duelers are still good @23K, but we're planning now for future replacements.

2005 VUE 2.2L
Default Re: Looking for tires for the Vue, got me to this forum!

Anyone had any luck with the Yokohama Geolander HT-S in size 215/70 16?? With over 47,000 worry free miles on them, the OEM Duelers on my wife's '03 Vue are about finished, and I'm eyeing the Yokohama's (mostly good reviews online). Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Cool Re: Looking for tires for the Vue, got me to this forum!

I just got rid of my Yoko Geos. I had them for a year but even with proper rotations they develpoed uneven treadwear and made an annoying "waa waa waa" all the time.

I replaced them with Goodyear Integrity (if they are good enough for the Lexus SUV and the Honda Pilot then I thought they would be a safe bet) I never go in the dirt.

What a great quiet smooth ride.... speed bumps are much less noticible.
Seems to take highway clover curves just as aggressively as ever.
