The tires on my car are getting worn, so I decided to find a replacement. I found an interesting site for comparing tires ratings at http://www.tirerack.com/tires/surveyresults/index.jsp This is based on survey information from consumers, but they also have reviews etc. I found that my EOM tires are not rated very well at all (click on the link above, and the tire type to see the headings for the columns below)
|Michelin Energy LX4||9||75%||5.6||6.4||6.8||7.1||7.8||7.4||5.8||5.5||5.2||7.7||7.7||6.4||2,484,790|
A little research at the Acura forum, www.cl.acurazine.comfolks were suggesting the Pirelli. So I checked the specs from the site:
|Pirelli PZero Nero M&S||2||97%||8.3||8.6||8.6||8.7||9.0||8.7||7.3||6.0||6.3||8.6||8.6||8.2||8,069,763|
OK, so it looks like a great tire. So how much? would you believe it's actually cheaper by ~$60 a tire? Same tread wear etc. Who would have known?
So this falls into my "I love the Internet" because so often I save money, I get better products based on the USERS of the products.
