This is a replacement of OE tire which came with the '08 Sienna XLE FWD. Primary reason for choosing the Comfortred Touring was ride comfort, treadwear and price. Ride comfort is improved (less noise and less secondary vibrations transferred to the cabin). Treadwear is an on-going evaluation, but I don't expect to replace this tire for another 30,000 miles. Price is attractive/competitive. Overall very happy with the purchase, but will update when more miles are racked onto the tires.

Better than average tire. I am a Goodyear fan and got these due to mileage warranty. I drive in mountainous areas and expected I would not get the full 70,000 miles out of them. At the rate I am going I will only get 29,000 till the wear mark. I got 31,000 out of the stock tires but they did not even compare to these ComforTreds in performance. I am disappointed in the rate of tread wear but they are wearing evenly.

We did have the Goodyear Triple Tread on our 2004 Honda Odyessy and it has performed extremely well. Our primary focus was to find an all season tire that perfomed very well in the rain or snow. The Triple Tread on the 2004 Odyessy exceded our expectations. The 2004 Honda sized tires did not create ANY noise issues, and we are pleased with the ride and safety handling on this van. When our 2006 Honda Odyessy needed new tires the Goodyear Triple Tread was a first choice, even though we considered the Michelin tires. We did get the Goodyear for the 2006 Honda in the 16inch stock size and I drove them home and could not believe the noise level! In this 16 inch size the interior noise level is louder than a truck tire. On the 2006 Honda these tires do handle well and are very good in light to medium snow. They do drive very well in the rain, but the noise level is way too high for a all season tire. If I had to do it over I would not choose this same tire. I do hope that Goodyear does look into the design of this tire (in the 16 by 225 version) and modify it to reduce the sound. I would easily give up some tread life to reduce the sound..Thx

Initial Review, 86,000 Miles on Tires
March 13, 2014

One of the best all round tires I've seen for passenger cars and minivans. I've had this tire on 2 minivans, a 1994 and 2007 Caravan and a 2002 Subaru Outback. On the Outback, they would pull through 8" of snow with no problem. Have never had an issue with wet traction or hydroplaning on any of the vehicles. I have 86,000 miles on them on the 2007 Caravan, and even at that point in their life they were OK in light snow and the slush left after snowplows went through. The tread wear indicators still aren't showing. My only complaint, and it's really not issues with the vehicles I've mentioned, is a slight lack of responsiveness in the steering, something I attribute to the rather soft sidewalls. So I would not recommend them for a car which is intended for (cough, cough) spirited driving. For instance, I would not put them on my Infinity G37, even if they were available in the right sizes and speed ratings.

A couple of months ago we put a set of these tires on our 2005 Acura TL and these tires perform great. We live in Green Bay Wisconsin and deal with a great variety of weather conditions. This past weekend we took a road trip over to the Twin Cities of Minnesota and the roads were covered with snow and ice. Needless to say, I couldn't have asked for these tires to perform any better that what they did. I am not one for writing reviews but I want to give a kudos to Goodyear - thank you. The only only downside is that they may be a little louder than average - but it wouldn't prevent me from buying these tires again.

Best Replacement Tires for the Honda Odyssey

Thursday, February 27, 2014 by Zig Ziegler

When shopping for tires for the Honda Odyssey most customers tend to look for tires that are quiet, comfortable riding and provide good traction in snow and on ice. Because of the large open space inside the cabin of the minivan, road noise is always an issue. Choosing the right tire can really make a big difference.

A few great options to consider when replacing tires on your Honda Odyssey include the Goodyear Assurance ComforTred Touring, Continental CrossContact LX20 with EcoPlus Technology and Firestone's Precision Touring. All three provide the best blend of ride/noise comfort, all-season traction and price.

 Goodyear Assurance ComorTred Touring

 Continental CrossContact LX20 with EcoPlus Technology
Continental CrossContact LX20 with EcoPlus Technology
 Firestone Precision Touring
Firestone Precision Touring


Goodyear's Assurance ComforTred Touring features a mildly asymmetric tread design that combines independent shoulder blocks with notched intermediate and center ribs to blend dry and wet road traction and handling. Four wide circumferential grooves evacuate water from under the tread to enhance wet traction while the tread grooves, notches and sipes form biting edges to deliver all-season traction in light snow.

The tire's internal construction includes a super shock absorbent Comfort Layer of rubber sandwiched between the tread and steel belts to insulate vibration and impacts with expansion joints, potholes and bumps. It also features Goodyear's dual-layer ComfortEdge sidewall supports to provide a balance of ride comfort and handling.

CrossContact LX20 with EcoPlus Technology tires from Continental use an all-season tread compound featuring their Tg-F Polymers and +Silane additives to improve treadwear, fuel efficiency and traction on slippery roads. The compound is molded into a symmetric tread design with notched outboard shoulders, independent intermediate tread blocks and continuous center ribs to blend on-road steering response and straight-line stability with reduced noise and enhanced ride comfort. All sizes of the CrossContact LX20 come with a flanged lower sidewall to help reduce the possibility of curb damage to expensive wheels.

The Precision Touring is Firestone's Standard Touring All-Season tire developed for the drivers of coupes, sedans, family minivans and crossover vehicles looking for year-round capability and comfort. Affordably priced, the tire is designed to blend long treadwear, a quiet ride and all-season traction on dry and wet roads, as well as in light snow.

Precision Touring tires mold a silica-enhanced all-season tread compound into a symmetric design featuring wide shoulders flanking interlocking ribs to provide dry road response and handling. Four circumferential grooves help guide water through the tire's footprint for wet traction while multiple notches and sipes provide the biting edges to enhance traction in light snow. The tire's structure includes twin, high tensile steel belts on top of a polyester casing to deliver strength, ride quality and handling.

Be sure to check out our test results and customer survey reviews to help you make a decision on what tire is best for how and where you drive.

Nice tire, needed something better in the snow than the michelin's. Really impressed with its performance in the snow, it is louder than the michelin's and maybe rides a bit harder. I cannot speak to its longevity, or traction loss over time, but early signs are it is a great tire if you need an allseason with more traction for a light SUV/truck

After only 45K on a 80K tire Im down to 3/32 tread already. This car is my baby and I dont abuse it. With a little snow dusting I cant get up my driveway. The dealer sole me these as best thing ever, will maintain traction until completely worn etc. I paid huge $$ for these things and they are crap. I am filing tread wear claim with Goodyear, so far response not overwhelming. Have to play hot potatoe with them and dealer, she couldnt get through to dealer so I have to make contact again! They should take it from here. This will no doubt be my last Goodyear product ever. Goodyear, because they are good for ONE YEAR!

Put these tires on at 44,333. Just sold the car 111,000 and the tread looks like it could go several thousand more miles. Remarkable. I've bought a lot of tires over the years and never got this kind of mileage. Worth the investment.

 

Looking for Quiet Tires? Check Out My Top Three Picks!

Tuesday, January 28, 2014 by Gary Stanley

When shopping for tires, most drivers place a good deal of emphasis on quietness. No one wants to listen to a loud tire on a long trip or have to shout at their passengers to have a conversation. Tire noise can be more than just an annoyance, it can also mask important sounds that affect vehicle performance, maintenance and safety.  

For most drivers, the quietest tires are found in the Passenger All-Season, Standard Touring All-Season and Grand Touring All-Season performance categories.

Michelin Primacy MXV4

For Passenger All-Season tires, the Goodyear Assurance ComforTred and Michelin Energy Saver A/S both received top ratings for noise comfort. While the Goodyear is not available in many sizes, the Michelin is made in quite a few popular fitments ranging from compact cars to crossover vehicles.  

In the Standard Touring All-Season category, the Michelin Defender has consistently received high praise from our customers in regards to its smooth and quiet ride. It's also designed to deliver extra long wear and all-season traction in dry, wet and wintry conditions, even in light snow. 

If you're driving a vehicle that uses tires with higher speed ratings, check out the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus and Michelin Primacy MXV4. The P7 All Season Plus is a relative newcomer with few miles reported in our surveys, but initial feedback has been outstanding. Developed to be environmentally friendly, Pirelli's EcoImpact icons confirm the tire's contribution to the environment with regards to energy efficiency, clean air, low noise and long wear. Michelin's Primacy MXV4 offers a quiet, comfortable ride, long treadlife, responsive handling and all-season traction. You can learn about my personal experience with this Michelin tire by reading "Michelin Primacy MXV4 Tires Installed on My Crossover."

Initial Review, 50,000 Miles on Tires
January 03, 2014

I got two years and 50,000 miles out of these tires and for the most part, I must say that I am pleasantly surprised that they lasted as long as they did. These are the OEM tires on my 2011 Prius 3 and they have been absolutely trouble free from day one but there are good and bad parts about any product so here goes.

The bad:
For those not familiar with the Prius, I need to qualify my minor quibble about the road noise of tires because the Prius is a very quiet car most of the time. At a traffic light the engine turns off so the silence can be eerie. On the highway, the engine shuts off too so you only hear wind and road noise. Since I have 2 Prius' with different tires (the other car has Kumho Solus tires), I can tell the difference easily.

To be clear, this is not a big difference in noise loudness so much as a difference in frequency and feel. The Goodyear tire seems to transmit more vibration as well as road noise.

The good:
Bulletproof. Absolutely bulletproof. In my decade of driving I've never had a tire perform as well over a long period of time. I did not notice a drop off in performance until after 45,000 miles when the traction control beeped during a spirited launch.

Better still, the fuel economy I got with these tires averaged 51mpg over 50,000 miles with best economy at 65mpg (running the car with no heat or a/c typically returns about 58mpg).

Conclusion:
Since I am one to meticulously maintain my vehicle, I attribute that and regularly scheduled tire rotation as one of the factors in this tire's longevity but those factors aside, this is a great tire in my opinion. Although I like this tire, I'm going to try something different next time but if they do not work out I will buy these again for my other Prius.

Note: Please don't rate tires until you have some miles on them. I hate to see reviews with 25, 50 or 500 miles; they are meaningless! You have to have some time and many miles on them to rate them properly.

I purchased these tires for my Camry after the OE Michelin's tires needed replacement. First two years were good, but now even after rotation and balancing regularly, I'm having to replace the tires far earlier than I expected. I've also had issues with nail punctures (twice) and the sidewall somehow getting torn (never had that before), makes me think the rubber thickness or "toughness" isn't that great. I would not recommend these tires or purchase them again based on my experience. I'm going back to Michelin's. On a positive note, I do love Tire Rack and no I don't work for them.

Excellent tire in the cold, wet, and light snow. This time is probably the best "all season" tire I've used because it's legitimately good in poor conditions. Slightly more noise than average. The dry response and grip of the car is significantly less than my previous (inexpensive) all seasons.

I have used these tires on 5 different rear wheel drive vehicle's for my limousine company in CT. With sniw and ice I swear by these tires. I wish I could use these tires on my limousines. Every set of tires I have rotated at 5000 miles with every oil change. Every set I was able to get over 100,000 miles out of them. I usually buy right at begining of winter at get through the following winter. As far as noise it may be a bit noisy but driving thriugh CT and NY with major pot holes I cannot tell if they are any louder. I feel very safe in my vehicles during snow. Have driven during the major snow storms of 2011 & 2012. Also the blizzard of 2013. I definitely will keep buying these tires for my sedans as long as they keep making the tires. I have actually was able to get 126,400 miles out if my last set. Love these tires.

I don't understand what other people are saying, these tires are amazing!! The snow traction is incredible compared to my previous 2 sets of tires, I was flying by everyone on a light snow here in Milwaukee. The noise level and comfort level is great, I no longer have to ramp up my volume to 40 just to hear the radio on the freeway. I now can set it to about 30, plus everyone who drives in my car now, comments how quiet it is.

I would definitely buy these tires again.
