#84 of 118 Replacement Tires for 2006 Odyssey EX
Sep 28, 2009 (4:34 am)
I have 51000 miles on my 2006 Ody and want to replace the OEM tires on the van before winter sets in here in Wisconsin. What do you suggest for a good all-season tire for this situation. I haven't had any issues with the Michelins that came with the van when purchased new but was wondering if there were others that folks found to be as good or better. I agree with many of the posts on the road noise but I knew Honda vans had that issue when I purchased it. So that is not THAT important to me but safety on snow and ice is for an all-season set of tires.

Consumer Reports just rated the following tires as best buys:
Hankook Optima H727
Goodyear Assurance Triple Tread
The Cooper CS4 received a good score for snow traction, but not as high overall. I'm considering the Hankook's for my 06 Odyssey.

Thanks for the response. I should have posted a couple days ago when I did purchase 4 new Yokohama AVID TRZ 235/65-16. These tires are giving a $50 rebate in the form of a Visa Debit card from Oct 1 to Nov 30.
Anyway, I had done some further research on the internet and message boards, etc. Also April 2009 edition of Consumer Reports listed this Yokohama as one of there top 3 rated tires.
See also this site for ratings of tires. Very enlightening.
So good luck rihops, but keep checking before you buy. I noticed that Hankook is lower down on the list on that link shown above.

I bought the Hankook Optimo 727's today. Less than $600 total, including a front end alignment.
I'll post more thoughts about them later.
#89 of 118 Winter tires/wheels - TPMS factor
Oct 10, 2009 (10:29 am)
I am trying to decide if I should do seasonal change overs or buy a second set of wheels for my '09 Odyssey in consideration of TPMS. If the only issue is looking at a instrument panel message while the non-TPMS wheels are on the van, I will probably buy a second set of wheels. However, if when I put the OEM wheels on with the summer tires the TPMS system doesn't automatically start working again without paying the dealer to do something, then I will probably not by wheels and just do the change overs. Any experience with this?
(I have been doing this for years on a '02 Toyota Prius and I have the dealer include the winter/summer change overs in the price of the snow tires and am very comfortable with this except that I need to be conservative in the timing).
#90 of 118 Road noise reduction
Oct 10, 2009 (10:33 am)
The Odyssey's problem with road noise on rough surfaces has been well documented. I have heard of people spending a couple thousand $ at Car Toys for sound insulation with mixed opinions of effectiveness. Has anyone found an effective noise reduction solution?

I'm not quite sure but I think you will still need to have the sensors recalibrated by the dealer if you use the same rims. Call and check.
IMHO, I'd go with 2 sets of rims and some black electrical tape during the winter.

bought my 2006 Odyssey new with Michelin All Season tires. Noisy as hell. had to always adjust volume on radio in proportion to speed. Pain in the neck. At 36,000 miles I replaced Michelins with Toyo Versado LX tires. Cannot belive the difference. Radio can be set at one volume at any speed, and my wife and I can hold a conversation as if we were in our living room. Cost? If I replaced with Michelins cost would be about $800. Total cost of Toyos (including labor, balancing various and sundry Florida taxes, etc) $500. Couldn't be happier, try them!!!
