Recommended all-season tires for RDX...

Hello, we've been looking for really good all-season tires for our 2007 RDX. Originally, we were looking at the Nokian WR & WRG2, but Nokian didn't make their all-seasons in the Acura RDX recommended tire size 235/55 R18. So, we're back to the drawing board...

We were given a couple other brand recommendations and want to know what any of you think or currently use & would recommend too?

These are the recommendations we received:
1. Goodyear Fortera triple-tread
2. Michelin MXM4

Thanks for your opinions!

The answer depends GREATLY on your driving locate/climate.

Here on the Seattle eastside we encounter wintertime adverse roadbed conditions rare enough that I do not feel the need for specialty winter tires. My '01 F/AWD RX300 runs on nice and quiet, comfortably riding "summer only" Bridgestone Turanzas all the year around. I keep a set of "quick-n-easy" chains for the rear in the RX and then add the second set during the winter months.

The summer tires obviously give me better traction vs winter treads in the dry, and more likely than otherwise even on black ice or hard packed snow. The only time the chains are advantageous is in a loose/slippery surface where they provide more "bite" than the summer tires.

If we are traveling to (skiing) or over the Pass in the wintertime my backup is a R/AWD '94 Ford Aerostar. It's also fitted with summer only tires (chains on board) but with handling on the adverse stuff that is a bit more benign than any FWD or even a F/AWD vehicle.

I'm reasonably happy with the OEM rubber. You could also look into other sizes (i.e. 245/50/18).

Wondering if you picked one of the above tires? I'm looking at the Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza or the Goodyear Fortera TripleTred. The Bridgestones are $180.00 less for the set of 4. Wondering if the bump in price is worth it for the Goodyears. FYI - not many glowing reviews on the OEM tires.

I have had the duelers on since August. Better turn in and a softer, quieter ride than stock. I never really push it hard enough to notice traction difference. They seem a little better in the rain. The treads are way deeper than the stock tires, and seem like they will last a while.

I need to get new all-weather tires on my 2007 RDX. I live in Virginia but do need to deal with snow/ice now and then. Looking for a smooth ride and a tire that will last longer than 30,000 miles and not break the bank. Would the Bridgestone Duelers be my best bet????

Those are a good choice as well. We have them on our Forester XT (yep, two turbo cute utes). They are a sort of "house tire" for Discount Tire made exclusively for them by Yokohama.

After plenty of research, we put on the Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenzas about 20k miles ago. They are considered a highway tire, so are smoother and quieter than OEM. The Dueler does have a deep tread (11/32") so you can detect some tread squirm under hard driving, but overall the handling is quite acceptable; a little more flex than OEM but with a lot more grip.

The Dueler also has a long treadlife warranty, but based on the present wear at 20k I'm not confident that we will get the full 65k out of them.

I don't think the Goodyear is worth the additional $, but that's a personal decision.

We did seriously consider the Michelin Pilot Sports (per BleuM&M) but they are directional and must be dismounted to rotate left to right. Otherwise they stay on the same side of the car, and with AWD can develop uneven wear.

We are quite pleased with the Bridgestones, and if they don't make 65k we will take them down to 2/32" and get another set under warranty.

The Bridgestones did quite well in snow/ice this winter.

General Altimax would be a good choice as well...it should soften the ride as well.

I am going to go with the Goodyear Fortera triple Tread to replace the stock Michelins, rather than buying a dedicated winter tire and rim and new all seasons in spring 2010.

After lots of reading of reviews and user opinions the Triple Treads seem to be the ones.

Anyone done as of recent cheapest i have found is 750 US shipped to my USA addy then taxes at border and the small exchange not bad compared to the price they are here in lower mainland Vancouver, saves about $250

New Tire Purchase

Hello to All,
I just installed a set of Yokohama Prada Spec-X 235x55x18. Tire Rack rated it number 1 in class, Street/Sport Truck All-Season. They were $70.00 per tire less then the stock Michelin's. I only have 20 miles on them but first impression is very positive. It is very similar to the stock Michelin's, smooth and quiet ride. I will wait a couple of hundred miles before I push them on performance.
I will report back later on updates.

Howard

In Texas. The Yokohama YK520 were highly recommended by Yokohama when I started looking for Yoko replacements for the OEM Michelins. About half the price of replacing with Michelins, a brand I've had excellent results with for decades.

Looking for feedback on how these tires act once temps drop to 40 and below. I have not yet ordered the Triple Treads I was planning to buy, all of a sudden their prices jumped large from 166 a tire to 203 which seems to be the going rate. I am now also considering the Yokohama Parada Spec X, they seem to get very good reviews on similar type vehicles on tirerack.com

I am just concerned on how they will fare here in BC Canada when we get hit with some light snow, I just do not want to buy dedicated winters since I am at 5/32 on the OEM Michelins which are not too great now that we have hit the rainy season and temps will only drop.

Can anyone give some feedback that may have used the Spec X in some light snow on their RDX?

RDX tires

After doing a little research, I decided on Yokohama Avid V4S's. They're not a truck tire and, let's face it, the RDX is not really a truck. The OEM Michelins aren't truck tires either. They were over $400 less than installing new OEM Michelins like what came with the vehicle. They work great so far, about 5000 miles. Grip is great, handling great, wet pavement great, ride great, etc. All the same as or better than the Michelins. And, they were rated higher than the Michelins on TireRack.com in several categories, for what that's worth. I would recommend them.

I'm also another satisfied Yokohama YK520 user for the RDX. Another tires worth considering for you guys thats looking for a replacement tires. Got 10k miles on it so far and looking at the threads it seems it would last longer than the Michelins that I replaced at 47k.

Yup, have been using the yokohamas V4S for the past 3 months now... as an all-seasons tire, it is a very good tire... reasonably good dry/wet grip, relatively quiet. In light snow, it works well... mainly for the price it is asking for, it is a very good value V-rated tire...

These tires changed the way my RDX handles for the better. (Stock size though) I am in Philadelphia, PA

These were awesome in the snow when we had 30+ inches a few weeks ago.

Went with Continental Extreme Contact DWS

They are fairly new tires on the market but they drastically improve the handling....especially in wet weather compared to the stock Michelin's....

I was going to go with the Parada Spec X as well but they were out of stock....

Happy with the Continentals....

I managed to get 51k out of my oem Michellins.....not too shabby...

The Continentals stick really nicely around turns compared to the stock tires. I had contemplated getting the 19" rims but just cost too much for tires and wheels.

I'm very happy with the Continental Extreme DWS tires...

I did have a problem with one of the tires....there was a defect where the tread started separating from the tire...they replaced it for free....

I'm good to go..

Happy driving!!

Not happy with Michelin Pilot MXM4

I am looking to replace my MXM4's. I was very surpised to see my treadlines clearly showing after only 65,000K of driving. No wonder I was sliding all over the place!!

I certainly live in a cold climate, but yikes ONLY 65,000K from these tires?

Can anyone recommend a cold weather preformance all season tire for me?

Thanks!!

Goodyear Eagle ResponsEdge (Grand Touring All-Season)

Does anyone know if these are a good choice in comparison to the Yokohama's? I'm turning in my RDX (and getting another one) in about 6 months, so I'm look for a low-price alternative. As an FYI - I got less than 21K miles out of the stock Michelin's...

Can anyone recommend a cold weather preformance all season tire for me?

Thanks!!

I'm very happy with the Continental Extreme DWS tires...

I did have a problem with one of the tires....there was a defect where the tread started separating from the tire...they replaced it for free....

I'm good to go..

Happy driving!!
Quazi27 - Have you been able to try then on snow? I am looking for good All-Weather tires but I am mostly concern with the snow here in Minnesota.

We barely got 30K out of our orginal MXM4's. I just ordered Yokohama AVID ENVigor's as a replacement.

What's the widest Yokohama Envigors that can be fitted on the stock RDX 18" rims?

The 235/55R18’s appear to be 28.2 inch diameter vs 28.9 inch for the 255/55R18’s. Yokohama advises only going up 3% over the original OEM tire diameter, and that the 0.7 inch increase would be a little too tall a tire.

The TireRack rep advised that the 255/55R18's were too wide for the stock 7.5 inch wide rims, and to go with the 235's.

Also, Discount Tire is trying to sell me rebuild kits for the TPMS when they mount the new tires, and quoting $40 to do it. Is this common practice or really needed? My wife drives the RDX most of the time, and the TPMS is a really good idea, particularly when a tire suddenly starts to go low.

Alternatively, I'm looking at some nicer BBS looking wheels, but don't want to pay the BBS price tag. I've found some similar styles, but aren't TPMS compatible, whatever that means. Can someone explain that one?

Please advise, as I'm ordering the new tires this week.

Thanks.

You should buy wider rims (8") if you wanted to fit this tire.

TPMS rebuild is a liability issue. Any tire store would replace the valve stems when fitting new tires to your wheels.

The TPMS sensors we use on our vehicles are mounted at the valve stem. Proper stem hole position on the wheel is needed to secure them. Older versions of TPMS systems were strapped to the inside of the wheel. You can do that with ours but sometimes they don't read properly.
Please advise, as I'm ordering the new tires this week.
Why not spend the extra $1000 and get some wheels too.? They will last the life of the car, reduce unsprung wieght, and look good as well.
Thanks.

After months of research on the forums and tire blogs, I just got a set of 4 factory 19" Chrome look wheels and 4 Yokohama Avid EnVigor 245/45/19 WR Tires. Getting them installed a week from today. I will post pictures and a review after the install.

NICE! I'm happy with them. Give us some specs (like wheel size&weight), and you must post the pics of them on your whip or at least give us a link!

Definately. I will weigh both the wheel and tire seperately and post the info and photos after I get them installed on Tuesday. It's reassuring that you are a fan of the tire since there is limited test data out there. I had the Continental Extreme DWS on back order with TireRack.com for 3 weeks until I decided to change my order to these since they were in the same price range. I am very excited to replace the boring factory 18" wheels and crappy Michelin tires. I will also post my opinion on Tirerack after about a week or so of driving on them.

^ I hear ya. I hated those stock silver Enkie's and could not wait to burn up the stock tires so I had an excuse to buy new wheels. (Don't tell my wife) We should have just spent the extra couple grand and bought the car with the 19" chrome wheels you are getting in the first place. I think it would have been another $175 a month but my lady wouldn't pony up.

Latest Consumer Report Ratings for Ultra High Performance All seasons. What i can tell u is this - if you have more rain/winter weather where u live, DWS 100%. IF NOT - go with something more aggressive on dry.
