Tire Replacement - 3rd time around

Hi Forum, I’m about to put my 3rd set of tires on my 2015 MKC with 95K. The two previous OEM sets were Pirelli Nero from the dealer and haven’t been too thrilled with them although I did get 40K from them both but as they aged they became noisy and choppy at low cruising speed. For this next round, I’m thinking about installing the OEM Michelin Latitude from my dealer. Has anyone had similar experience and selection? Thanks !!

I don't have an answer to your question but I always go to tirerack and look at reviews to help me decide.

Alzee77, I'm at 93k and about to put on my third set also.

Michelin Latitudes OEM
Michelin Premier set two


Both sets got slappy, noisy at the end. This is pretty much expected.
Each had the last 10k miles with sneaky belt separation issues (both sets). Just gets you far enough where getting the pro-rata dollars back on new ones is ridiculous.


Tomorrow I am having a set of Continental Cross Contact LX 25s (from TR) put on.

They looked best for my situation. Oh, I have 18" wheels because I tow a 3000# boat trailer a fair amount

Will keep posting here.

Every Continental I had I hated. Poor tire in water (for me) and not so good in snow. my 2 cents

I replaced the 20 inch Pirelli tires with the same Pirellis. There are not many tires available that size. The new tires ride quiet and smooth just like when the MKC was new.

So I went ahead and put a set of Michelin Lattitude on my MKC and am I so ever pleased. The ride, handling and noise level have exceeded my expectations. Now granted they are new tires but I do not recall this much of a difference with the previous Pirelli set. I think I’ll become a Michelin man...

I have 25k and I have already replaced my factory Michelin tires, my dad made 31k. Both of use had rear tire cupping with right rear wearing out first. Neither of us rotated our tires, I know that is terrible.

I put cheap Walmart general tires on that were rated at 700 A A

If you don't first mess up you will never learn.

Am I the only one with Nitto Motivo tires? I have 20" so my selections may be a bit different than y'alls. A bit louder than I like at slow speed but nothing else to complain so far. Wear is good.

I got 31k out of my Pirelli’s. I probably could have squeezed a couple thousand more but it was November and winter was coming.

Those must have been some older Conti's. They are now listed among the best for snow and maybe the best for A/S Snow traction.

I used to stay away from Conti in the past also, since the DWS came out, all their products have been pretty **** good.
