Really? Wow, you must be a fast reader, because there are probably near ten thousand threads on this forum about tires, each containing multiple posts.I searched this site in both the gen 4 and tire section and not a whole lot of tire information.
Hope you are not serious, stopping distance has a lot to do with tires..as does cornering traction.I’ve had great success with Continental tires. The set that came on my ‘12 Odyssey lasted nearly 100,000 miles. They were quiet. I’m not sure that stopping distance has anything to do with tires.

Worn tires vs new tires, yes. I was more thinking of brand A new tire vs brand B new tire. And yes, of course, tires play a huge role in cornering.Hope you are not serious, stopping distance has a lot to do with tires..as does cornering traction.
I really don’t know the answer to that. I would think it would depend more on the braking system than the tires.new tires vs new tires make a big difference especially in wet conditions or snow conditions. Tread pattern and depth and compound all play a roll in braking. Do you really think a soft compound will stop the same as a hard compound or a tread with no siping etc will stop the same? @Discount Tire care to weigh in?
Really? I've never seen a more technical forum. I'd be interested in seeing these sites if you'd care to share. Even tire sites themselves don't provide a whole lot more. All tire sites that post reviews show the exact same ones. All of them. And they all post pretty much the same information. I have read magazine articles that go into some depth, but those are periodic and limited. The other thing is, when it comes to reviews and even comparisons, most folks are not tire experts (including journalists), so the information provided is mostly just uninformed observations anyway. You're right, it's somewhat disappointing. But I'd say not more so here than anywhere else. By definition automotive forum content is derived from vehicle owners. I've read as much helpful information here as I have on any other forum. Any real information of any sophistication you find on a forum is a link from a helpful member. So if you have some to share, I will be happy to look. But in the end, I mostly go on my own personal tire experience anyway, as I suspect most of us do. I do buy all my tires at Discount Tire, as they always take good care of me. In a perfect world, there would be a tire forum that would astound us with expertise and useful data. But in a perfect world, I'd be rich and have a person for this.I guess I am just used to more technical forums. Sorry to offend you guys. that is not my intentions but I all the searches turn up use the search lol. Nobody talks about the actual merits of different tires. I have searched and people say yes that is a good tire or that is a good tire but i never actually tried it..Give me real data ie mpg, stopping distance, trie life, noise and ride etc. Multiple posts with no real information is not all that helpful.
