    Michelin Harmony vs Goodyear Assurance Fuel Max

    Which tire would be better?

    Quieter, Traction wise, better all seasonal rain snow dry pavement gravel?

    Tire size: P205/55/r16

    The Goodyears are buy one and the second tire for half price.

    Michelin is one of the best street car tires out there... I only buy Michelin for our cars. They have great traction and I easily get 80,000 miles out of them.

    i dunno...i really tend to stay away from michelin, especially their OEM stuff like the 'energies'. they don't have that great of a tread life and their performance sucks.

    it's not about brands when it comes to tires. what i would do is just search what types of tires are available for yur size and then see which one fits yur needs & budget the best.

    my tire of choice: toyo t1r

    I roll on Nitto Neogens

    But if I had to pick between those two, I would take the Goodyears.

    Those are great tires I put them on my sister's Honda Civic very good traction, low noise, and they have worn great so far.

    However... They are quite expensive around 112$ each

    Yikes. None of the above.

    Why does anyone want 80,000 mile tires anyway. In this world, you can either sacrifice safety and handling, or you can sacrifice tire life. You can't have your cake and eat it too. If a tire meant to last 80k, the tire compound is simply too hard to provide decent adhesion.
