Found new tires for the Outlook.

I have not heard anyone mention these...
they are a new luxury performance tire designed for CUVs- and their most fuel efficient tire yet...

AND it comes in 255/65R- 18 which is exactly what the 18's are on the Traverse/Acadia/Enclave/Outlook
They are made by Toyo tires. Its the VERSADO CUV - 18" replacement tire- (OE Fitment).

When it comes time to replace my tires- I will most likely go with these.
Recently replaced the Goodyears on my 2007 Impala- with Toyo tires- Extensa's I think.
On the drive home- I kept looking for a large truck next to me- I could hear the low rumble from their exhaust... Not vehicles around me. Turns out the rumble was MY dual exhaust!!!!!!
WHAT A DIFFERENCE.
3 yrs after owning the car--- I finally HEARD the factory Dual exhaust on the car- the tires made less noise- that I could finally heard the exhaust.

Hope this new find helps you out....

link is www.toyotires.com

in reference to my Impala- the Toyos were MUCH cheaper than the Goodyear Eagles.

Re: Found new tires for the Outlook.

I heard that they are pretty nice. I think mikemu on the ACADIA Froum has them and loves them. My Forterras suck! I can't wait for them to wear out (probably sooner than later) so I can get a new set, something that last's longer than 30K (if I'm lucky) and alot more quiet.

Re: Found new tires for the Outlook.

I like the look of the Toyo tires Versado or the Open Country. Look like a nice quiet tread design with good water evacuation. I've seen Open Country on some M-Class CUV's. Not sure if they were OE or not.

Re: Found new tires for the Outlook.

I noticed Cooper has a CS4 Touring P255/65r18 for the Outlook (roughly $129.00 at Treaddepot.com as of 12/13/10) has anyone tried these yet? I've also seen that there is now a Hankook Verntus AS RH07 P255/65r18 at TireRack.com as well anyone using this tire?

Yep and they are still a good set tires after 10,000 miles. I can't wait to see how the toyo's do.

I have 37k on mine and still have 7/32 of tread. I do not drive like a Grandma either... They do okay for me in the snow, what are your gripes about them?

mine are loud, really after a tire rotation and are wearing too fast, I'm at 28K and over 1/2 gone but I guess that's better than some.

Re: Found new tires for the Outlook.

I have the Cooper CS4 touring tires on my Outlook and I really like the look of them. Not the quietest tire out there, but they are smooth. My wife really likes them. I hope to get more life out of them than the Goodyear tires we had on our Acadia. I just hope when I have to replace them I can afford new tires. I have the large 19" tires and can only image what they are going to cost.

Re: Found new tires for the Outlook.

I also put the Cooper CS4s on - bought from tires-easy and had them shipped to an installer. I had over 50k on the GoodYears but they wined and wobbled the last 15k miles no matter what I did. These are much quieter and where much cheaper. Happy so far with about 8k on them.
