UPDATE AT 10,000 Miles -- Awesome replacement tire for the Volvo XC60. This is the tire they should have used for the OEM! Great wear, very comfortable ride, good responsiveness and a little bit better MPG. A lot quieter than the OEM Pirelli Scorpions. If I had to recommend a tire for this vehicle, this would be the one.

Husband researched, Wife approved!!
The OEM tires on the wife's Volvo XC60 became unbearable with the road noise that progressively developed when the tires had about 50K mikes on them, so I started research on a replacement tire. The Volvo Forums had some XC60 owners post that they were happy with the Bridgestone Dueler H/L 422 Ecopia so I pulled the trigger and ordered from TireRack. Wife was out of town when I had them installed from a TireRack approved shop. I got to drive on these and immediately noticed the improved comfort and the SILENCE! Oh, yeah!! So the wife comes back and takes a 200+ mile trip to visit her parents – and I get a call from her thanking me for the tires (I was fishing!) – she is 100% satisfied but said she was doing easily 20+ MPH over the speed limit because she said it was like "driving on a cloud." I cannot vouch for any MPG savings or longevity as they are new but I will report back at 20K. Thanks Bridgestone & TireRack!
