Tire board is dead. Searched 5 pages back.

Time for some new tires within a month. Not brand loyal but looking for a good all around tire for Colorado. Long life would be great (60k++). Decent in the snow and rain while being quiet. Mostly highway use.

Thanks for any suggestions

I usually look to see what Costco has on sale, and then see if there are any really bad reviews about the tire. As long as the tires have good tire ratings for traction, wear, and mileage I will purchase them.

How many miles do you have on your 2017? My 2014 still has the original tires, and at 40,000+ miles they are now just starting to look like they will need replacement sometime this year.

Think we had defenders on my wife’s Camry... 80k warranty and they were done at 40 or 45k. Was disappointed in them for sure.

I have Goodyear Assurance Fuel Max on my '13 and they are great! They are extremely quiet and smooth, not to mention, I just recently had them rotated and they have only worn 10% with 20k miles on them.

I bought General Grabber HTS60 All season... I like them, test very well against Michelin at a little lower price. I have a 2017 CRV EX.

If this post is directed to me, I said I like them. I've owned both Michelin and Generals over the years and they both work well... of course anything is better than oem junk tires. That's always my first stop after picking up a new car, the local tire shop. Check out the review on the Generals at the Tire Rack. Good luck with whatever you chose...

With the exception of how many miles you can get out of a set of tires a lot of this is subjective. What one person thinks is loud or objectionable might not even be noticed by the old dude with less than optimal hearing or the 20 year-old that has the tunes cranked up on max.

I like the reviews and criteria available from Tirerack.com. I've purchased from them a couple of times but I have utilized their reviews for many tires that I purchased locally.

I just replaced the factory at 25k (3/32 left) with Goodyear Assurance MaxLife. I wanted the Goodyear WeatherReady, but they were not yet available in the size. The MaxLife are an 80k mile tire. So far they seem okay...no louder than the stock (to my ear, but I'm not sensitive to that stuff). A bit of winter weather so far and no issues.

I went with Goodyear because my local all-around shop is a Goodyear dealer and they (shop and tires) have always been very good to me, so I didn't do too much shopping around. Just a quick reviews check on the MaxLife.

I checked my original "Junk Tires" and they have 47,000 miles on them with surprising tread depth left. They also performed very well going up our very steep driveway in the last snow we got. So today I decided to rotate the tires. Removed the first one and there was a Tek Screw head protruding from the center of the tread. Removed the second tire and there was another screw...minus the head!

So I figure you jinxed me! I guess I will look for new tires instead of getting these fixed.

Michelin Defender LTX M/S.
Nice tread pattern for snow. And 12/32" tread depth new.

Just put a set on my Pilot - different size of course. Haven't had a chance to test in snow yet.
Replaced my 10 yo Michelin Latitude Tour, which were fantastic in the snow.

Latitude Tour HP (I think that means 'higher priced'!) is available in your size. But I would choose the Def. LTX over it.

I looked at the Michelin LTX and went with Costco's version which is XLT and am very pleased. I bought them in September and we have had a snowy winter so far. Michelin's are on sale right now at Costco.

Michelin has a new Cross Climate tire that recently came out that is getting great reviews. I may have considered them if they were available. I have had great luck with Michelins. Driving home tonight was bad conditions and the XLT's are a dream (told they are the same as LTX, just a few dollars cheaper).

I put on Kumho Crugen Premium tires - top rated by Consumer Reports. So far, they have been great. Smooth, quiet, and great traction in rain and snow. They are not expensive!

We just replaced the tires on our '17 Touring at 27k miles with Continental Crosscontact LX20's. The ride is more "planted", steering more precise, braking is very confident, they are immune to rain groove tracking and are very quiet. We just had a number of huge storms here in Southern California, so we were able to test the tires wet weather ability and we have no complaints.

They have amazing wet traction and great water channeling ability (no detectable hydroplaning as compared to the Hankook's they replaced) in deep water.

Because of my background in the automotive industry, I've been blessed to sample tires from almost every manufacturer on almost every type of passenger vehicle there is and these are right up at the top of the class.

I cannot report on performance degradation as of yet because we only have about 2,500 miles on the set, but I have faith they'll exceed the performance of the Hankook's in that regard too.

Good luck!

P.S. Unless there is a severe fall off in their performance as they wear, we plan on replacing the tires on our '18 Touring as well with the Conti's when the time comes.

We put these Goodyear Comfort tires on wife's CRV a couple years ago and love them. Comfortable ride and great performance. 80k miles, all season. They are a bit heavier so she lost one MPG compared to the OEM tires.

Tires for CRV

I have Goodyear Assurance Fuel Max on my '13 and they are great! They are extremely quiet and smooth, not to mention, I just recently had them rotated and they have only worn 10% with 20k miles on them.
I've recently replaced my tires with the Goodyear Assurance tires as well. It's an amazing difference and improvement over the original tires. Being in Michigan and living on dirt roads we have plenty of experience with snow and ice and recently quick melts that leave surfaces wet on top of the ice. What a difference, great traction and stearing is positive on ice, dirt and pavement. They were rated an 8 out of 10 with Michelin being the 10. The cost of Michelin's was $120 per tire more then then Goodyear's and not really much of an improvement. I'll buy them again and no, I'm not a dealer.

Hello I've been very happy with Michelin Defender on my '05 CRV. Costco is selling at the best price and best warranty, which mine are 90k but currently at 80k miles.

Good in slick snow and mud and wear like iron. CRV is a loud vehicle by design these Defender tires are not the most quiet but I opted for long life over quiet.
