Looking at 4 different tires for my 2017 CR-V EX-L AWD (finally time to replace the stock Ecopias). In Chicago area, I want to make sure they have good traction for my teens especially when winter comes. I'm ok sacrificing some gas mileage if need be.

Anyway, these look like they have pretty decent reviews and I was wondering if anyone here has experience with them and how they like them. Thanks!


Edit: The other 3 I am looking at are:

Thanks. I'm giving them a serious look. I've never owned BFGoodrich and was initially leaning towards that Michelin Crossclimate.

Do you live in a state with snowy winter? Curious how you felt they performed this past winter.

I live in a state of snowy winter and I would not rely on either. I currently have Crossclimates for summer, nowhere near as good as actual winter tires in snow/ice.

stuman74, you have some solid tires you are looking at but which tire is right for you depends on your weather, driving style and what you are looking for in your next set of tires. If we can help you narrow down your choices please let us know.
Thank you. My current original tires are down to 4/32. With spring/summer coming around, debating if I can wait until fall to get a new set with fresh treads to head into winter. Or sooner. I'll keep checking the treads periodically. Not putting many miles on at the moment thanks to the current social distancing order.

I've bought my last 3 sets of tires for the household from our local Discount Tire :)

Thank you so much for your continued support @stuman74 - we greatly appreciate it!

At 4/32nds you may be able to make it until the fall, depending on how much you drive as you stated, but you may experience some issues with wet performance at that tread depth. You can read more on that HERE.

Well, I'm finally planning to order tires this coming week (since my 2017 CR-V will be having its 3rd birthday :). Going with the Michelin CrossClimates. Costco has a sale on these that's too good to pass up at the moment. I like Discount Tire, but after adding in the 3-year road hazard certificates (Costco has 5-year road hazard included for free) these come out to $320 less out the door at Costco.

Well, some good news! I did call my local Discount Tire to see if they could match Costco and they did! Tires are on order now and I should be able to get them installed perhaps this coming weekend. Will report back once installed.

Just got them installed! Received at call around 12:30p that the tires were already in and was at the shop for the install a little over an hour later. Real quick, just ~25-30 min wait and out the door.
Dry/sunny day today so not much to really test out. But since my CR-V turned 3 years old today and I'm passing it to my twin teenagers, I want good traction during the winter. Hope the treads can last 4-5 years.

I'm looking at the least road noise. Want to swap the new tires for maybe the BF Goodrich. Does anybody give credit for new tires?

I have the Scorpions now. They wear like iron, but they are very stiff and extremely noisy. I looked at the Cross Climates but they seem a bit steep for a 50k mile tire. So I will probably go with the Defenders. 80k mil tire and lower price, supposed to also be quiet.
