    2010 SRX Premium 20" Tires

    So, living in New York, I need to replace the two front tires before we get snow. Rear have plenty of tread but front are borderline . . . shameful.

    I don't know a thing about tires, so I have been looking on line and see that there are currently only about 3 brands that make tires to fit the 20" SRX.

    Michelin
    Bridgestone Dueler HP Sport
    Yokohama or something I have never heard of.

    And to top it off, not many places here carry this size tire. I can easily get the Duelers, but nobody seems to have the Michelin's in stock. (Probably because most people, like me, waited until it is near snow time . . and ran out to replace worn tires).

    Before I invest in the Bridgestone Duelers . . . I have read mixed review online for them . . so I am wondering if anyone here has used them on the SRX and what they have to say about them?

    Re: 2010 SRX Premium 20" Tires

    If you are just buying 2 new tires I would only buy the make and style of tire that you already have on the back which I am assuming is Michelin that came with your vehicle new. I don't believe you should try to mix or match other tire brands or use another style of tire even from the same manufacture. If you were buying all 4 new tires than I would say you should be OK to go with a different brand.

    IMHO: I would recommend getting the OEM Michelin tires that were on the SRX when brand new as those tires were specifically developed and designed for the driving chartarsitics of your SRX and I also think they are one of the best all-around tires you can get today.

    NOTE: I would call your local Cadillac dealer if you can't seem to find a tire store locally that handles your tire and ask them to get two tires for you and of course shop their prices too.

    Just my .02

    Marc . . .

    First . it's been a while . . . haven't benefited from your insight for about a year . . . as my SRX has been running GREAT since we got it about 1.5 years ago. Good to see you again

    Thanks for your advice. I am getting 2 tires, because I am a bit pinched with the holidays . . . and what not. Otherwise, I agree . . I would get all 4. I also agree that it would be nice to go with the Michelins. They are great.

    I do, however, need some insight on the Bridgestone Dulers . . . because for this one instance . . they better fit into my budget. I will go with Michelins if everyone seems to agree that the Brigdestone are garbabe . . but if not, I need to make a budget call.

    You must be on your 34th SRX by now? lol jk!

    That's odd. At almost 15K miles my front and rear tires are wearing perfectly evenly. Any ideas why you're getting the uneven wear?

    Yes it is great hearing from you again. BTW: I edited my comments above so I hope you had a chance to reread them. I certainly can understand one being on a tight budget. I am not a tire expert but I do remember hearing that one should not mix tires. That is the reason why I said you might be best advised to stay with the Michelin brand if you are only getting two new tires.

    Perhaps there is a tire expert on our website that would be able to give you some better advice or chime in on whether you would be OK with mixing your tires. I hope you don't get too much snow like we usually do in WNY area ... then again unless you are living around in the Syracuse, NY area.

    *Oh yes ... I am only on my 3rd SRX ... but I am sure I will want to own another one in the future.

    Re: 2010 SRX Premium 20" Tires

    I personally wouldn't be afraid to buy other name brand tires for your SRX.

    I'm a bit of a tire and wheel nut. Everything I have every owned has had aftermarket wheels, tires and what not. Some were plus size. Love the wheels on the Cad SRX so their staying.

    The wife's Nissan SUV has the same size and brand tires as my SRX. They wore terribly quick even with rotations for so reason. I put a set of Nitto's on it in a 255/50/20 with an asymmetrical tread.

    The tire size and weight are virtually the same as the 235/55. They have been flawless, and can be rotated in any direction. No difference in MPG or ride quality either.

    Yokohama Prada Spec's have some excellent reviews on Tirerack. They may be my next choice. Good luck with it.

    Re: 2010 SRX Premium 20" Tires

    I agree with Marc 100%. It's not really a question of another tire brand being better, or worse. That's a decision that should be reserved for when all 4 tires can be replaced. It's about mixing tread patterns and the handling characteristics of different tires on the same vehicle. If you've ever driven on a road surface that was grooved and experienced the vehicle swerving, that would be similar to one type of negative result that could occur with mismatched tires. This type of bad behaviour would be more likely to happen under the worst conditions, such as higher speeds, or rain and snow, or a combination. That's not to say this kind of effect will definitely occur. There's just no way to be sure if you take a chance on mixing tires. Better to be safe than sorry.

    Ah yes ... that is what I recall hearing about mixing different tires.

    Re: 2010 SRX Premium 20" Tires

    The most dangerous scenario is to replace a single tire with a mismatched one.

    OK...I had to go back and edit my last statement. I suppose the most dangerous scenario would be to have all 4 tires mismatched. I can't imagine anyone doing that, but what a nightmare that could cause.

    Re: 2010 SRX Premium 20" Tires

    Ok . . so I have read all of the great information everyone provided, and I have done even more research online.

    It appears very true, that with AWD, you should not mix and match brands (due to different speed ratings, tread, etc). When your tires are unevenly worn, or different treading, the computer will take an incorrect reading and the differential will be overworked . . eventually burning out the drivetrain.

    This, I did not know. This is my first AWD vehicle.

    Sube5186 - I am not sure why the tires have worn uneven (front and back). I bought the car when it was 9 months old . . and the wear was already uneven. I will keep my eye on it. I assumed the front would naturally wear faster (even in AWD) because the front of the car is much heavier than the back??

    Anyway . . with all of the good information provided . . . I have made the following decision:

    My local Cadillac dealer is asking $360 per Michelin plus install. That's $40 per tire more than other places in the area. . . but the other places offer free install. So, I am not going to the dealer for this one.

    Then the Bridgestone's are about $50 cheaper than the Michelins per tire. So, that is a savings of $200.00 And, with Xmas coming and a few other unexpected expenses . . I have to be penny conscious . . . especially now that I realize I need to buy all 4 tires.

    I have read the reviews on both tires. Seems there is good and bad about both Bridgestone and Michelins. Some people say the Bridgestone are awful in snow and rain . . others say they are fantastic in snow and rain. So I have no idea if I will be doing the right thing or not lol.

    But, I have no choice but to go with the Bridgestone Deuler HP Sport Tires, and save over $200.00 this round.

    If nobody has any experience to share with the Dueler HP, then maybe I am the first? And I can report back later, on how they worked out, ride, noise, weather conditions, etc.

    Thank you all for the insight! As I was about to do something I would regret.

    Re: 2010 SRX Premium 20" Tires

    It's a pity that I have a complete set of SRX 18" wheels AND Michelin latitude tires with < 10 miles that I would like to sell for a very cheap price. They were taken off of my wife's 2012 SRX that we purchased at the end of July and replaced with the 20s. We're in Florida, so don't need any winter tires, but if I did I would prefer the 18s as a winter set. They did snatch the TPMS from the old wheels, but those can be found on the internet for a very reasonable price. The shipping costs to deliver these up north would be my concern.
