These tires are the original equipment on my 08 TCH and have served me just fine. I have 67,000 miles on them and they will probably be replaced by the time I hit 70,000. I drive roughly 600 miles per week in Atlanta traffic and get about 40 mpg. I would like to find tires that are much quieter but don't know if that is possible. The ride is good and they do fine in wet weather and dry. Never tried them in snow! I'm think about replacing them with the same or with Hankook Optimo 727--both pretty pricey. I'm eager to hear from anyone with experience with these or other tires.

I just put my 3rd set of tires on my 2007 TCH with 71500 miles on it now.
The original Bridgestone OEM tires were AWFUL and lasted only about 32K miles.
I got some Yokohama YK520 tires, rated at 65K, and they lasted about 39K miles.
I decided to step up in "class" and go with the high-dollar Michelins, since the tire store gave me a $68 per tire credit for the Yokohama tires.
So far - VERY pleased with the Michelins.
Nice, quiet, smooth ride and feel. Also unusually, I noticed a slight increase in MPG with the new tires, almost immediately. Very Odd, since new tires are softer and have "more rubber on the road" and that usually bogs down the MPG at first.
It will be interesting to see if the MPG continues to go up as the tires harden with use and get less rubber on the road.
All in all, these tires are HIGHLY RECOMMENDED !!

Can anyone tell me the difference between the Michelin Primacy MXV4 HR's and Energy's? Which one is better for all season use?
