I am not sure why you have 19" tires on the GMC. They should have 18". I did go with the Michelin's. If I remember they were 265/60/18 - Michelin LTX MS2. they have been good so far. I am having some balancing issues but the dealer has taken care of it. The Fortera just didn't do it for me. I went through 2 sets. But I did get over 60K on both sets. Most dealers and discount tire companies have a $70 or $100 rebate on a set of 4. Check online, SAM's, Costco, and Discount Tire. I hope that helped but I would double check the rim size,

Go to www.tirerack.com for tire suggestions. Also, look on your tires for the correct size. I have 20's on mine.

Has anyone had experience with HANKOOK ventus AS RH07 255/65/18?
I am looking to replace my Gdyr set after 60K +.
I really cannot find much info about these tires. They are way cheaper.....so i am interested in feedback on there performance.

Sorry to hear you only got about 25K on the goodyears. How has your experience with the Hankook been?

Go and buy the Michelin mentioned. Do not go cheap on tires! The new MS2 not the Latitudes. Read previous info. You will thank me later. From experience. Dave

Just purchased the Hankook AS RH07 255/65/18's for my 2008 Acadia a few weeks back. Replacements for original GoodYear's after 45K. Only having 2-3 choices of tire in 255/65/18 was extremely disappointing. Tire Co's need to step it up. Did quite a bit of research (tirerack.com is a good resource) and determined that they are solid tires, just starting to make a name in the US - made in Korea. The rep at Discount Tires did not know anything about them. The Hankooks are nearly $100 per tire cheaper than the GY's. Just finished a 1000 mile road trip through mountains w/ rain - performed excellent. Noise level is low. Would definitely recommend!

You must have not done very much research, or not have read this forum. You would have found several options. The purpose of these forums are to inform and assist each other and save each other headaches. Good luck with your tires. You did good on your Goodyears because mine your junk. Take care. Be sure to change your Transmission fluid and air cleaner. Dave

Has anyone reviewed, or had experience with the Bridgestone Dueler H/L Ecopia? I am going to buy new tires in Sept.. I have 60K on the Acadia and do not like the noise of the Goodyear. Tire size 255/65/18.

Read #52 and others if you haven't. You can tell by my name that I like the Michelin's, MS2's not Latitudes. They have 70,000 warranty but also ride great and wear great. Have over 15-20,000 on these I have on 2008. You can not go wrong unless you get the others free, then I would think about it. Read the other posts if you haven't yet. Good luck. Dave
#55 of 93 Differnet rims? To be able to fit a more popular tire size?
Aug 23, 2011 (8:07 pm)
I used to do this all the time with VW's.
Same price to buy 15" alloy wheels and then 195/65/15's as it was to just buy the replacement low profile 17's. From then on you can buy the much more popular (and thus cheaper) 195/65/15's for the life of the car.
Trying to find what rims (hopefully nothing real fancy/expensive) might be able to work on a friends 2010 Acadia with 255/65/18 that would fit over brake calipers, have the same offset, etc.
Couldn't find anything here with search where anyone had tried this - or more accurately found something that would work.
Anyone else researched this?
