I’m looking for new tires for my 09 caravan and my 17 pac ( upgrading to bigger wheels on the pac ). Does anyone have any experience with these tire brands if so please share.

Nankang , lexani , lionhart.

There are super cheap tires and have nothing but good reviews on google so I’m just curious if anyone has run these ?

I am running Lexani LX twenty and have to say I am very impressed by the performance so far. Far smoother and quieter than the Bridgestones they replaced.

How many miles you have on them?

I use Continental's on about everything I own. Very pleased with them so far. Always quiet, great grip, long wearing. Well worth the money IMO.

Had Extreme Contact DWS on my 11 DGC , had ~35,000 miles on them when i sold it recently, they had TONS of life left

Extreme Contact on my PAC, ~6,000 miles on them, still look new, tracks great, handles amazing (can't wait for the drop springs)

Extreme Contact DW on my RS, have about 6,000 miles on them, look new still

Crosscontact LX20 Ecoplus (large suv tire) on my 04 Wrangler Rubicon (I don't off-road, mainly cruise with the kids, around 500 miles a year) they raised my mileage on it from 12-15mpg to 15-18mpg, have about 2,000 miles on them and they as well look new, these def make the jeep twitchier than the Goodyear "off-road" monster tires that came on it; I assume from the short wheelbase and narrow track. I got used to it, and now I like them a lot. It was hard to find an on road tire to match the width and height of the factory tire.

Hey flyerstump. Just curious how the Extreme Contacts are working out on the Pacifica? I have the ExtremeContact DWS on my other car and love them (great dry traction, and better in the snow than any all season I've ever had), but I wasn't sure how they'd perform on a bigger car.

I've also been looking at the Continental TrueContact Tour, which are fairly new, but pretty well reviewed. Anyone have these on the Pacifica? I have the hybrid and 18 inch wheels, for what it's worth.

Bridgestone ecopias on my hybrid . No complaints and wouldn’t hesitate to Pritchard another set . I’m reading up on the Michelin’s for eco and hybrid driving .A s previous messages states “ I’d never skimp on tires or brakes “. Well within reason you get what you pay for really .

Any particular Michelin's you're looking at? I have the OEM Michelin Premiers on the van currently, and although I have no complaints in the driving department, they're pretty worn after only 20k miles (seems like a consistent complaint around here). The TrueContacts say the have "Ecoplus" technology and they have an 80k mile(!) warranty.

Michelin Defender LTX on our 2018 Touring L -- not quite as quiet as the OEM Yokohamas, but certainly better steering response, handling of rough roads and overall traction. If $$ are tight, would consider the General Altimax RT43

Are these cheap tires Chinese imports...?
Be a little careful with putting on Chinese anything for all stuff you own. Apart from the quality and safety issues, you might be contributing to what happens when cheaper stuff from China floods the market. At some point the better quality tires will start to buckle under sales pressure, and at times they collapse, and guess what, then you will only have Chinese stuff to choose from.
Read about and educate yourself on what happened to American Bicycle industry (Schwinn, Huffy, etc). I hope that cancer doesn’t spread to automobiles, but it’s nibbling at the tires already. But who am I to say about it.

It's been a long time since Chrysler made a minivan in the US...

But seriously, you can spend as much or as little on tires as you want, and you'll generally get more bang for the buck at the lower end. If you want something nicer, spend more and enjoy it. If all of this were about stretching every dollar, a 30 year old Neon could get you to work and back in the same amount of time as a $40k+ minivan.
