ill consider these in about 30-40,000 miles... when the tires on my 2010 Traverse need replacing.. (then again- my 03 Trailblazers factory tires went 88,000)....

But hopefully-- Toyo tires will jump in and make this size...

They look like nice tires, I hope they are better wearing than the Forteras :sosad:.

Bought em about 4 months ago and they ride really nice and quiet. They have a 80k warrenty so time will tell if they will hold up that long. Go to http://www.mavistire.com/ProductCart/pc/_default.asp and print out a quote and go to discount tires and you will save a ton on the price.

Bought four at www.tiredepot.com so far so but I've only had them a couple months. I'm still annoyed the Goodyear's only lasted 40,000 miles (but maybe that is because its AWD but I don't think so).

The drive train isn't a factor here; the Goodyear's on this vehicle are crap IMO :cheers:

How are the Coopers holding up? Bridgestone has a Blizak winter tire that is the right size but I am not sure how a winter tire would fare in the summer months.

The Coopers are holding up well so far this winter and have done well for the partly to mostly covered roads (after being plowed) in the last 12 inch snowstorm and 8 inch snowstorm (AWD Outlook) with minimal wear (2 months old) we'll see as they get older. On dry pavement they seem to stop a bit longer than the Goodyear's but I have noticed they gain better traction and shorter stopping driving around in the snow and several inches of sleet that is around here at the moment if my memory serves correct from when the Goodyear's actually had tread on them a couple years ago. The tires seem to handle the curves (dry pavement) a bit better too (wife has lead foot). No real loss of air yet.

At the Welcome Saturn Owners party at our local Chevy dealer I talked to a couple guys who bought the Coopers who were really happy with them so far without any problems (6 month or less on the tires). They mainly liked the cheaper price and better handling since the Goodyears are going for $250-300 a tire around here. Btw if you order them off the internet it seems Wal-mart ($50) or NTB is the cheapest to put them on in my area some of your local shops might be better though. The Wal-mart tire guy (afternoon mgr) after looking up the price ($250 Special Order) suggested I just buy them off the internet (tirerack.com etc.) because it will be cheaper than the $250 per tire even with UPS shipping then just bring the on by to have them put on for about $50 bucks.

The Blizak is strictly a winter tire, not meant for summer use. I suspect they'd perform quite poorly and wear prematurely. Best bet is to either swap tires on the rims each spring/fall or buy a second set of wheels to mount your winter tires to. The base Traverse LS comes with 17" steel wheels which will likely fit our Outlooks (all Lambdas use the same brake pads, so brake size shouldn't be an issue) which might be a good choice for snows.
