Thumbs Up Just replaced my tires

I got only 30K out of the duellers. Really horrible tires. Towrd the end I was afraid to run it in the rain. I put on Michelin Energy MXV4 245 60 17's. Got them at Mavis tire and they matched Sams club price of $150 a tire including road hazard warranty, installation, balancing etc... These are really excellent tires and handle really well. Haven't tried them in rain yet but I highly recommend them.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

2005 VUE 3.5L
Default Re: Just replaced my tires

you got about 29,500 more out of yours than I did, LOL......the Saturn folks called the other day to see how my wife liked her new Vue......I responded she loves it and no issues.....but I did tell them a number of people had experienced poor wet handling characteristics and that I immediately went to a better quality tire......I also advised her that the OEM size tire has very few choices for same size replacement tires

Your selection was great! We got maybe 18K out of the so-called duellers, and then they started to Firestone. Hot climates tend to do them in. They rarely wear out here.

Good job!
