New Tires

I replaced my Michelin MVX4 plus tires four years ago and have a little over 45k miles on them. I have rotated them every 5k miles. I am looking to put a different tire on my vehicle. I have 93k miles and plan on driving it for another 4 years max. Any suggestions other than the michelins? Thanks

Tires

Yeah! I researched before I purchased a 3rd set of tires for my 2005 X5 4.8is because Michelin just didn't last long enough. I decided on Continental because they also came with a 50,000 mile warranty where Michelin didn't give any on their tires. Good luck on your decision.

Smile Tires

My Continentals are, Extreme Contact and have an awsome tread design to boot. So far I am happy with the performance and they handle great.

Talking Tires

You have that right. They were half the price of the Michelins.
