I love my LX25's. Good in every way. I have a little over 30K miles on them, now, and still have a small bit of the "S" left on all 4 tires. Considering I drive semi-aggressively and have the turbo model, that's pretty awesome! Rotated every 5k miles except for a couple of times when all wear was 100% even.
Have LX25s and am happy. Had LX20s before they came out with new version and think they were ever so slightly quieter but 25s have stiffer sidewalls and handle a little better IMHO. Still not performance tires, but the grip in the wet and smow is great and worth the compromises.
First impression after replacing my Goodyear Assurance Weatherready tires today with the Michelin Crossclimate SUV:
Rides a lot higher than before but this is obvious as there is more tread
Ride quality is WAYYYYY smoother over bumps and imperfections. I used to feel every single crevice of the road on the Goodyear and it was nuts. Could be that I had my PSI super high as well but I have my PSI set to 40/50 on the Michelin's and they feel perfect.
Cornering/straight line performance feels the same if not slightly better
Braking distance is noticeably reduced but it could be that because there is more tread as well
Road noise maybe a hair louder than the Goodyears but similar
Haven't tested yet:
Performance in the rain/snow
So far, I am very pleased with these set of tires. I still haven't gotten used to them or found the limits to them yet so I may update this thread once I get more miles in.
Here is my alignment spec sheet for anyone interested:
