First, ignore my screen name, as it is a carryover from a 2012 C200 TIPM issue.

We have a 2017 Touring L Plus, 85000 miles, love it, only had one problem, liftgate stuck closed.

At the 90,000 service, we will finally change out the factory installed 235/65 R17 tires. The Kuhmo Solus factory tires have lived their life well, but, I have always thought they were noisy for a van that is supposed to be really quiet.
With that said, can anyone still running their 2017, recommend quite replacement tires, with a good service life?

Thanks

I put Michelin CrossClimate 2's on my 2018 Hybrid and I've been so happy with them. They stick so much better than the factory tires, and seem very quiet (but I can't hear much over the kids anyway).

Michelin Primacy tours.
Great tires. They are formally called Michelin Primacy Tour A/S. Right now they are hard to get. I don't know why, but something to do with shortages.

Tires in general have been getting harder to acquire at work. All brands have been affected, but many mainstream Continental and Michelin tires in particular have been unavailable from our distributors for a few weeks. Normally, we can get most tires within a day or two.

We had a customer come in last Wednesday that needed to replace a tire that wasn't repairable on their brand new car that has only 3,000 miles on it. The tire they needed was an OEM-only model that isn't sold to the masses. I was told by the rep that helped me that the one I ordered was the last one available in the whole country and it didn't arrive until yesterday. Most customers don't realize that all the tire places in town use the same two tire vendors that we do. I suspect it's the same scenario in other locales.

Regarding the original question, I recommend the CrossClimate 2 or Defender LTX from Michelin, but most Continental tires also fare well. We have the Continental CrossContact LX25 on our van and have been very impressed
with them.

+1 to Michelin Defender LTX. We have them on both vehicles and they are perfect for Upper Midwest area. Strong, smooth, quiet, and above average traction in icy conditions, as well. Good all-around tire.

+1 to CrossClimate 2. Didn't put too many miles on them to share much about performance in different weather conditions, but so far I'm happy with the choice.

I think your probably best to define what you need from your tires , ride quality , quietness , mileage , summer or 4 seasons , mileage in terms of longevity , etc .

Another +1 for Michelin Defender LTX. I went from Yokohamas (which were very noisy) to Michelin Premiers (mainly because I was stuck and that's all that was in stock) on my 2018 and they only lasted 1 year and 18K miles due to premature wear (and yes I am good at keeping up with alignments and rotations). I ended up getting a generous pro-rated refund and put on Defenders. They are nearly as quiet as the Premiers and a tad worse in handling (which really doesn't matter on a Van) but all of my vehicles with Defenders have had unbelievably long service life on these tires.

I just had new tires put on ours last week. I have the 20” wheels on mine. I went with the Goodyear Assurance WeatherReady tires.

Stay away from COOPER SRX tires. Worst tires I've ever owned.

Thanks for that one.
We are getting ready to put new tires on our Hybbrid Limited. Having just dealt with a nail, I am looking at the Michelin Premier A/S Selfseal, which come standard in S models and Pinnacles. Tire Rack caries them for $244.

I am interested in folks who hav e these on their vans thoughts about these tires.

Can't help with that one, we are still running factory Kuhmo Solus, mileage wear was fantastic, but they are noise.

Those aren't that highly rated. If you want to stick with Michelin, go with the Crossclimate2. If you want to save money, try the Pirelli Scorpion AS3 that comes with a $70 rebate.

The Premier A/S is a terrible tire. They're the OE tire for many vehicles including the Pacifica, but are arguably the worst tire Michelin currently offers. The service manager at the dealership I work at refuses to install them because they've received lots of negative feedback about them from customers. The Defender is a much better choice. It's tread design is more biased toward tread life, but it still grips quite well in most conditions. Self-sealing tires are nice, but the downside is that if you do get a nail or anything else in it, you'll never know about it.
