  1. Anyone running Michelin Defenders?

    Tires, Wheels, & Suspensions
    I have a 2013 CR-V, and I am considering putting on some Michelin Defenders LTX/MS, and am looking for some insight on them. Also, are they fairly quiet? Thank you!
  2. Which Michelin Defender Tires?

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 CR-V
    i have a 2015 crv exl. I'm looking for an all season tire. I drive approximately 9000 miles a year, 90% of it local. Micheline has a m&s model and a t&h model. I don't know what the difference is between them. If anyone knows what the difference is please tell me. If you have other tire...
  3. 1st day with Michelin premier a/s

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    Just hit 25k and decided to throw away the Bridgestones and now I wish I did from the 1st day I bought this suv. If I could describe it in one word, “quiet” or maybe “ more sure footed” or “stickier”
  4. Michelin CrossClimate tires

    Tires, Wheels, & Suspensions
    Has anyone tried this new-model Michelin yet? Interesting tread pattern (and characteristics) https://www.michelinman.com/tire/michelin/cross-climate-suv ^^ this info from Tire Rack
  5. Advice: Michelin Premier A/S vs Premier LTX on 2013 CR-V?

    Tires, Wheels, & Suspensions
    I ordered a set of Michelin Premier A/S tires during Costco’s sale ($70 off plus free installation). I was going to go with the LTX version, which is supposedly optimized for crossovers and light trucks, but they were sold out. Anyone know if I will see a real world difference between these two...
  6. Buh-bye Bridgestones, hello Michelins (REVIEW)

    Gen 5: 2017-Present CR-V
    At last, the factory tires wore out and I finally had a reason to get new tires for the CR-V. While excitement to spend hundreds of dollars on new tires isn't common, I was ready. I pondered Goodyear’s and Michelins and anything from TireRack.com with a good rating. It comes at no surprise to...
  7. Michelin X-Ice Xi2 vs. Xi3

    Tires, Wheels, & Suspensions
    Hi everyone, Looking to get a set of 17" winter tires for my 2018 CR-V. I've decided on Michelin X-ice's but am having trouble deciding between the Xi2s and the Xi3s. From what I understand the 2's tread is a bit deeper and better for rural areas (e.g. deep snow), while the 3's are meant to...
  8. Michelin Primacy SUV.

    Tires, Wheels, & Suspensions
    I had Costco put a new set of Michelin Primacy SUV on my 2016 CRV yesterday as the OEM tyres were down to the wear bars. Unfortunately my Costco here downunder doesn't have a wheel alignment machine. Today I took it to another tire shop and had the wheels re-balanced as the was a slight shimmy...
  9. Michelin Defender or Premier?

    Tires, Wheels, & Suspensions
    2013 CRV-LX with 215 70R 16 tires. I'm trying to decide between the Defender and Premier. I live in SD so light snow traction is #1 consideration and smooth quiet ride is #2. Our roads are well maintained so winter tires are overkill. I'd appreciate comments from anyone who owns either tire or...
  10. Michelin Latitude X-ice Xi2

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 CR-V
    I need new tires for my 2013 crv as one oem blew at 54,000 miles at about 3/32 tread so I am replacing all four. I have read the reviews at this link http://www.michelinman.com/US/en/all-reviews.latitude-xice-xi2.productpage.user.html and it has pretty good reviews for the latitude x ice. I...
  11. Michelin Premier LTX

    Tires, Wheels, & Suspensions
    Hi all, I bought a set of Honda Accord Sport 18" rims and they came with Goodyear Eagle RS-A tires, which are utterly crap. I'm planning on replacing them with Michelin Premier LTX, 226/60/18. Just wanted to know if anybody has experience with them? Thanks in advance! Matt
  12. Replacement Tires for 2004

    Tires, Wheels, & Suspensions
    Hello all, i have Michelin Harmony tires on my 2004 Cr-v that i had put on in 2008. they are still in great shape (i drive about 8K miles a year), and I have had zero problems with them, however from my research I have gleaned that 8 year old tires should be replaced. Michelin does not make the...
  13. Michelin Defender cracking.

    Problems & Issues
    Well, thought that I bought a good set of tires when I bought Michelin Defender. Was doing a tire rotation today. Installed by Costco in Feb. 2013. Tires are marked on the sidewall (0513) which I assumed, were manufactured in the fifth week of 2013. Now have 73,000 kms/45,400 miles. All four...
  14. Michelin Defender - Rim Lip Gap

    Gen 4: 2012-2016 CR-V
    2013 CR-V LX: I just had Michelin Defenders installed at Costco yesterday, and noticed that the rim lip protrudes more than with the OEM tires, i.e., a larger gap between the sidewall and inner rim face. Any one else notice this? Just wondering if it's normal, or if the tires are on the low...
  15. 05 CRV w/ Michelin Defender XTs

    Tires, Wheels, & Suspensions
    I just put Defender XTs from Costco on my 05 CRV, and noticed they seem to be pretty under-inflated. The door jam calls for 29psi, but they sure look like they need more pressure. In addition, my MPG dropped from 27-28 to 21-22. I've seen other posts where people call for mid-30's, and wanted to...
  16. 2012 CRV EX - Michelin Latitude Tour or Continental CrossContact LX20 ECO Plus?

    Tires, Wheels, & Suspensions
    My 2012 CRV EX tires have about 29K on them. about 4/32 - 3/32 remaining. So I am looking to replace. I drive in the desert (Tucson, AZ) so not too worried about Snow traction. (to be expected) Just looking for great wear, quiet and not losing mileage from the stock Continental CrossContact LX...
  17. Tyres fir 2006 diesel crv - Bridgestone or Michelin or budget?

    Tires, Wheels, & Suspensions
    The tyres on my 2006 crv are coming up for replacement, last time I did this I put some new Bridgestone dueller tyres on ( same as standard) and they don't seem to have lasted that well. I don't drive the car that hard so was wondering whether it makes sense to pay the but extra and go for...
  18. Tires: Michelin Defender XT or Goodyear Triple Tred, better in snow?

    Tires, Wheels, & Suspensions
    I got a CR-V 2008 4WD. It is an EX-L but I doubt that matters. I'm in the need for all season tires that have good snow traction and I've narrowed it down to either the Michelin Defender or the Goodyear Assurance CS Triple Tred. I live in the Finger Lakes region so we don't get the lake effect...
  19. Michelin LTX M/S2 on 2013 AWD

    Tires, Wheels, & Suspensions
    I'm no expert on tires, but I am considering the Michelin LTX M/S2 P235/70R17 109T, and I know the CR-V only requires 102T. Does the 109T rating mean they will be too heavy or inappropriate for the CR-V? These tires are rated very high, should be very quiet, and are about $166 each at Tire Rack...
  20. 2012 CR-V w/ P235/65R17 103T Michelin Latitude Tour Tire w/ Pics

    Tires, Wheels, & Suspensions
    This is my first post, so, hello everyone. I have been searching around for new tires for our 12 CR-V. The OEM Bridgestone Dueler H/P Sport AS tires are absolutely junk in the snow here in Ohio. So, our search began with Michelin because I am a Michelin fanboy. YMMV. Anyway, I wasn't very...
