    They are quiet, handle well and are long wearing... I like them.

    Thanks, Jim. I know you are in TX, but have you had experience with them in snow like when you did that long trip through several states? How were they in those circumstances? I need to periodically drive up north to visit the family and we do sometimes get snow here in KY. Thanks!

    I did drive thru a little snow..but not enough to really give them a fair test.
    They did fine for the little bit "I" was in, but I hesitate to recommend them as good snow tires because of the limited experience I had with them in snow.
    I just don't know how good they would be in heavier snow.
    TireRack.com should have reviews on them...

    Thanks Jim. Finally I will be going with the Primacy tires. I found out that Michelin is giving me a 25% rebate for the tire rot issue and then there is a 70$ rebate for a set of any Michelin tires. So I figured...why not! My MXV4 Energy Plus set was produced in mid 2008 and so the warranty was just about to expire in June/July. They degenerated pretty quickly since the summer. I am so excited to have them on and see the difference. It sounds like I am in an airplane now when I drive my DTS because of the state of the tires. I am wondering whether the car sat a long time in the sun before I bought her.

    It does kinda sound that way...
    That seems like a killer deal on the new tires...
    Best of luck with them and don't forget to report back on them.

    chek out Tirerack.com for recommendations. I found the original mkichelins too soft. I choose a more popular Michelin style .

    I had kumho's on my '06 they are surprisingly a very good tire. I had no complaints about them at all, they were on the car when I bought it and thought for sure I was going to have to replace them, not the case, handling - very good, price excellent. Also threw some tiger paws on it for the trade in. I have to say.... Not bad for a $120 dollar tire, I was literally shock at how well they performed.

    continental tires are noisy go back to the Michelins which are softer but don't last as long. look on Tirerack.com for more information.

    Michelin's don't last long? You must be thinking about Goodyear's...I got over 100'000km's on my Primacy MXV4's before recently changing them for Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3
    I don't use any tire other than Michelin's because of the longevity, quiet and comfort controlled ride...believe me I put on 50'000kms a year on my DTS.

    I have a set of Coopers on my '06 DTS. They were on the car when I bought it. They ride very smooth and soak up the bumps.

    Re: Quietest tires for 2007 DTS

    Hoping to get some feedback close inspection of my tires is showing some dry rot cracking...so I will be doing some research appreciate feedback from folks here that have experience. I live in the snow belt so traction is a priority here.

    TIA

    Re: Quietest tires for 2007 DTS

    Hey 007DTS,

    Michelin Defender are definitely long lasting tires with positive reviews.
    So, what is this "$32.00 (4)TPMS Rebuild Kit"? Are you keeping the old sensors with batteries and just replacing the valve stems? I have priced the TPMS kit at a local Buick/GM dealership and it is $90 each.

    $32 doesn't include the actual sensors, just the valve stem/core/cap kit.
