Re: Sticky: 18" replacement tire thread

Mileage warranties are good for comparisons within tire manufacturers. Having been in the tire industry for 27 years, I can tell you it was extremely rare to get a warranty due to premature wear. You need to document your rotations and alignments, you need to keep the air pressures at recommended, your front end parts need to be tight. Because the first thing they do is look for a violation of any of the above. If your tire wears on one edge, you're going to be denied for alignment reasons, or if the tires are cupped, you get dinged for not rotating or keeping the wrong pressures in the tires. It's the same with the Uniform Tire Quality Grading System, it's good to compare tires from the SAME manufacturer, but the manufacturer submits the data, and they all use a little bit different base points. At one time, Michelin rated top of the line tires around 400, and Cooper was rating their second tier at 560.

1st post and this is for my daughters 2017 sle with 235 65 18 tires. I was trying to help her with a new set and saw these for about $500 shipped.

They are rated at 80k miles, SL (which means standard load, I believe) and 106T which is the weight and speed rating. However, for some reason they claim these are not compatible with her 4 cyl vehicle. She has the worn oem michelins on there now with almost 40k on them. She cant afford new michelins, so would these be a good substitute for Florida driving? Shes not pulling any trailers, loading it down heavy, and Im praying she keeps it under 80mph.

Any thoughts?

Cooper's Evolution H/T comes up as one of the choices for the 2017 SLE on tirerack's website. The only differences in spec between the CS5 Grand-Touring and the Evolution H/T in the same size are the speed and UTQG ratings - T vs H and 780AA vs 600AB, respectively. Appears you'd be OK getting either tire for the car.

The cs5 has pretty good reviews above 30k miles on tirerack. Hopefully they will last. Shes got a leadfoot. Thanks for your input. Go Mountaineers!
