Default Replacement Tires for 2002 CRV Ex

I need to put 4 fresh treads on and wanted to go up 1 width size. Can anyone recommend a Tire brand and size they like that will cost $100/tire or less? I like tires with long tread life, if I can get it. The original Bridgestone Duelers got 38,000 miles on them....they are shot. Thanks.

Default Check out the new Yokohama AVID TRZ

I would suggest you check out the Yokohama AVID TRZ, It's a brand new tire from Yokohama. I got them from Tire Rack for both my 2000 and 2005 CRV SE's. There quiet, handle good, great in rain, and have a really nice looking tread and sidewall. They are also 80k tires and if they last like my Avid Touring tires they will go the distance. Price is great to. 205/70/15 for my 00 were $55 each and the 215/60/16 for my 05 were $66 each + shipping of course i think was like $10 per tire. A real deal...

I have had good run with Yokohama Avids, but they were horrid in snow, more like a high perfomance summer tire. Bridgestone Potenza RE950 were really a good compromise all season tire. Michellins Energy Plus are good, but expensive. Sometimes Costco have these coupons for $100 or $150 off purchase of 4 Bridgestones or Mischellins. Otherwise Tire rack is a good source. Tire mounting should not cost more than $10-$15 per tire at the local garage.

As far as snow goes, I would agree, I have never found a good all season tire that really does the job in snow. For true saftey, I run dedicated winter tires all around on OEM steel wheels, there just the best if you swing it. Even the cheepest snow tire will serve you better in snow.

alsy,

How do the TZs compare to the older Avid Tourings? Noise, ride, handling?

I have the old Avid Tourings on my Jetta and was quite pleased with the road noise reduction and improved ride.

It looks like the TZs might be a bit better in snow than the older gen tires. So far the old style tires have been up to what little snow I've had to deal with.

Thx.

Hey,
The TRZs I find to be very similar to the Avid Touring as far as ride and quietness, I find them the TRZs to be a lil better in the rain. I mean i know some reviews i used to read on the touring model were not always so favorable, I found them to be really good, and all three sets I had went the mileage Yoko said they would. As far as snow I can't tell you as I use dedicated winter tires.

Default yokohama TRZ

I'm looking into new tires for the '02 V. I guess the TRZ is relatively new, so I'm just wondering if more people have tried them? It's rated 700-A-B, $55 each from Tirerack. (seems a lot better than the OEM Bridgestone)

Here's tirerack's summary of the tire:

The AVID TRZ is Yokohama's premium Standard Touring All-Season tire developed for the drivers of sporty coupes, sedans and minivans. The AVID TRZ is designed to provide comfort, longevity, confidence and driving satisfaction across all road conditions, including light snow.

On the outside the AVID TRZ features Yokohama's newly developed silica tread compound that remains more pliable at lower temperatures to increase cold weather traction. The compound is then molded into an asymmetric tread design featuring Three Ride Zones (TRZ). The outside portion of the tread design focuses dry road cornering grip, while the center portion concentrates on water evacuation and the inner portion of the tread design emphasizes winter traction in light snow. On the inside, twin steel belts are reinforced by spiral-wrapped nylon, along with a carcass that sandwiches high-density sidewall filler between polyester cord plies to blend comfortable ride qualities with predictable handling.

Any tires other than the OEM Bridgestones will give you better light snow traction & slipping over thin layer of ice. I had Avid's P215/65R15
Touring on my 01 EX's, $230 for a set 4 w. UPS shipping from Tire Rack -
very quiet, comfortable & dry/wet traction and in light snow. OEM Duelers rated at only 180 BB.

If you order from tires.com (Performance Tire) - stock sized P205/70R15
are $49 with free ground shipping. My 04 EX's is about to reach 22,000
miles and with my daily commute & weekend trips, going to hit 30,000 by
this winter & I'm going to retire these lousy Duelers - the ones on the
01 EX lasted about 45,000 miles, with careful rotation, before I junked
them then for the Avids. I'm looking at the new Avid TRZ's too with its
700 AB ratings as all-around tires. Tirerack.com has the P215/65R15
at $64 each with a $75 mail-in rebate for Crutchfield (mobile electronics)
on purchase of 4 tires, which is a pretty good deal - especially if these
tires will last up to 70,000 or 80,000 miles.

Firestone's Affinity LH30 tires are also pretty good even in light/moderate
snow and is about $66 each for the P215's and it's H-rated with a stiffer
& stronger sidewall. Otherwise, the Avid's are great for hi-speed cruising
in the 65-80 MPH range and you can actually get to enjoy true CD music
on the OEM speakers at lower volume.

For true winter driving in moderate to heavy snow & ice, you need to
install 4 snow tires such as the Michelin X-Ice or Bridgestone Blizzak
WS-50 on a 2nd set of rims to give best handling, traction & stopping
on icy surface in connection with the ABS. Without them, I wouldn't have been
able to get to my daily job at the medical center or respond
to codes called as emergencies on 24/7 basis.
