    Good point, they like to sell what's in stock. I had researched sizes and that Pirelli is available in that odd OEM size but maybe not locally handy. I was happy if talked into the up size in this...

    I was scouring the options for tires too. We have a '16 with 22,100 and the OEM Yokohama were still showing some gap to the wear bars but almost unlivable noise and loss of ride compliance. Also, ...

    I'd have thought the maint part of the OM lists those things as time or mileage intervals and at least you can verify it agrees or not with what they tell you.
    My guess is 60k to 100 on many of the...

    Guessing we are around 22,000 miles on our 2016 CX-9 with OEM Geolandar 18's. Not impressed enough with any characteristics to put another set on but alignment must be good and I'm on top of tire...

    The Geolandar tires were not a favorite but came on our 2016 Touring. I had them on a 2002 Tribute too and didn't find them impressive in any particular category so your impressions sound in...

    Thanks for the info.
    I'm in no hurry so I'll do some looking around.

    Yes, a big loss at higher elevations.
    I live at 6,620 and the Pikes Peak race must be a real downer for the power guru's running cars and motorcycles up to 14,000.
