Initial Review, 30,000 Miles on Tires
I bought these tires for their promoted wet weather traction capabilities. I wasn't sure about the directional tread design though. The van had the Goodyear version of this tire before that were worn out. They preformed well when new and I've not had any major problems. One rear tire was replaced early on with a new one when it blew out the side wall after hitting some sharp road debris up in MI. They seem to always look low on air even though I run 37 lbs. pressure in all four tires and monitor the pressure weekly. The fronts are nearing the outer wear bars. Partially my fault,I should have been more diligent in rotating front to rear, but I would still have thought they'd last longer. The fronts are getting noisy too. I am considering ordering a set of 4 of the new Michelin Defenders since they are more traditional in tread design and look to have longer life potential and a possibly a quieter ride. I'm not looking for a Ultra-high performance tire on an Odyssey, not planning on running any road ralleys. Whether it's the tires or not, the Odyssey gets an honest 25 MPG on the highway and my family and I got 28 MPG coming back from VA with a slight tailwind.I really appreciate Tire Rack's reviews and look forward to continue to use them as my tire source.
