Finally got some LRRs

Well, it was time. The old tires were shot.

The new ones on the Integra are the Michelin MXV4-Plus XSE. After researching the issue, these were the only ones that could prove LRR status, as being part of Michelin's "Green-X" series of LRRs. There was not a lot to choose from in my size, so of course they cost an arm and a leg. But alas, the interior noise is lower -- WAY lower -- those old ones droned loudly. Now I can hear the engine at speed and the radio . I need to get the proper pressures in and wear-off the break-in layer. Then hopefully an improvement should be seen.

The butt-dyno/skidpad noted good grip in corners and easier acceleration. Of course since these have tread (as opposed to the old ones), there's a little squealing in hard corners and some scrub, but the sidewalls seems to have identical firmness. For warm weather performance, I say at this point. I hear they turn to rocks in cold weather, tho. MMWV, so I'll track the progress.

What size were your tires? I may need to get some tires for my Saturn. I was told by a sales rep at Tirerack.com that Goodyear Assurance Comfortread's in the 185/65-15 were LRR as well.

Let me go out and check...

OK, I'm back. They're 195/60-15 -- had 'em shipped to a local installer and had the mount/stem/balance/alignment done this morning. They're pretty pricey, but I never skimped on shoes.

If at all possible, be certain to access tirerack directly from the link in the "coupon" tab on the top of the screen.

Every little bit helps.
