I've been mulling over tire choices for some time to replace the OEM Toyo's. I've run Michelin's before but found them to wear out faster than I would like. Michelin CC2's have been recommended but they too apparently wear out more quickly than several other brands. In addition, since I already run separate winter tires the added "winter" traction benefit of the CC2's would be irrelevant to me. Continental LX25's were of interest to me as they have been for many others. BUT, I then did some research on Tire Rack and discovered that the new Pirelli Scorpion AS Plus 3's rated more highly in all the categories that mattered to me (Traction, Treadwear, Temperature, Quietness, Comfort), as well as having a slightly deeper tread, 12/32 vs 10/32 for the Michelins and Conti's, so I have bitten the bullet and they will be installed tomorrow. Details on their performance to follow in the coming weeks.....hopefully before the snow flies and my winters get installed.
