Default Replaced Tires Yet?

Has anyone had to replace their tires yet? If so, which tires did you go with and how many miles did the first set last?

I haven't had to buy any new tires yet. I generally don't keep vehicles that long

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

I have, but not intentionally. I somehow managed to get a nail in my left/rear sidewall. Only 4 months old and I had to spring for a new tire.

I like the Duelers.. They have great traction. Hope they last a while, tires canbe expensive.

About 125-150 a piece for stock Deulers. I had to have one replaced at 1,300 thanks to a screw in the sidewall.

I've been impressed with them. I drove in quite a bit of snow this winter and they did great in comparison to other vehicles I've driven.

I just replaced my tires at 31,000 miles with new Deulers. The factory tires wore out at 31,000 miles despite being being rotated. At this time the only tires made for the VUE are Deulers and a $200.00 a piece Goodyear. I hope in the future additional tires will be available for the VUE.

I heard the original Duelers only had a treadwear rating of 180 so you'd go through them pretty quick! The ones on my VUE have a 360 rating so they should last a while longer. I too was impressed with their performance this winter. I imagine as the tread wears down that will change, but I'm thinking of buying some winter tires for next year.

I'd be really happy to get 50-60,000 km on these ones!

I posted that when I saw my 1st VUE. Tread life of 180. The CR-V had the 180 too. The temprating was a C too. The one's on my VTi are 360 and are the same size as the ones on the V6 235's.
