Re: Found new tires for the Outlook.

Toyo Versado's on my Outlook and Sky... both cars have much less road noise. Will see how they do in the snow this winter on the Outlook, the Sky is not a snow friendly car. The Outlook does seem to tow better behind the RV too. So far we are happy with them.

Re: Found new tires for the Outlook.

We got our used Outlook back in Feb '11 with brand new Fortera's so we're good for a while. I'm hoping to get full use before having to replace them.
I only notice the noise when the radio is off and even then it's not bad. We definitely will not be going back to Fortera's either. Way too expensive.

Some have had great luck with them but I think most of us have not such good luck

Re: Found new tires for the Outlook.

The amount of tolerable tire noise is *very* subjective, which would explain a lot when it comes to some owners enjoying their Fortera's while other owners not so much.

Re: Found new tires for the Outlook.

Just came back from a local dealer and got 2 prices, the Michelin LTX MS2 P265/65/18 are $1024.38, installed with lifetime rotation and balancing and for the Bridgestone Ecopia 422s P255/65/18 it was $874.58. The Bridgestones are harder to get, the Michelins come with a $70 repaid Visa, and the reviews for the Michelins are excellent, so we will have a set of new Michelins in a few weeks. Glad to get rid of the Forteras, bad wear, slip in the rain and very noisy, they do look good though.

Re: Found new tires for the Outlook.

I'll agree that the Forterra's do look good on the Lambda's.

I'm off topic here but you were told that you could get an OUTLOOK in a V8 or turbo? and by who? and when?

Re: Found new tires for the Outlook.

We finally got the new Michelins last week for $998.20 and what an improvement. Nice and quiet and sticks to the road like flypaper.
