At 43000 miles my SRX Luxury is getting close to needing new tires as there is only 4/10 tread depth
left on them. Checking on Tire Rack I found that Perilli has a Scorpion Verde all season plus tire for $158 each
vs the Michelin Latitudes (oem tire) for $219 each. When you use the compare tool on the site the Perelli is
much higher rated in all categories. On a set of 4 the savings are $244. Has anyone put these on their SRX?

I replaced my tires at 54K with the Latitudes. My long time mechanic, and a Cadillac owner, tried the cheaper 'just as good' tires but found the ride suffered and put Michelins back on. They're rated for 60K, so it's worth having a good ride. If it was an aging Toyota Corolla, that would be a different story.

I had Firestone Destiination LE2s on my last vehicle (Toyota Highlander) and liked them quite a lot.

Hard to say how they compare to the Michelins on the SRX but I'd guess there might be a bit more road noise.

Note: that's just speculation based on how they comprared to the OEM Toyos on the Highlander, but the Toyos were a very quiet tire - moreso than the Michelin Latitudes.

As to the Pirelli's they are a fairly new tire so I don't think you're going to find anyone who has much experience with them.

So what am I doing wrong? My tread depth is down to 3/32 at 30000 miles. I have always kept the pressure at 36 psi and cross-rotated the tires every 4000 miles. Also, I have the Performance trim with size 235/55R 20 tires. Are the former posts for the 20" or 18" tires. Probably makes a difference. Additionally I find the OEM Lattitudes very noisy. Again, probably a side effect of the high-performance tire. Dealer price quoted to me is $910.00 US for those tires.

When you say cross-rotated, do the fronts ever go to the rear? Also, are your tires worn evenly or more in one area (inside, outside, middle)?

Well the wife got a puncture in the sidewall, so we are going to get 4 new tires instead of 1 new and 3 with below average tread. Going with Firestone Destination LE 2 in the 235/55/20 size. About $270 total cheaper than the Michelins and better rated on Tire Rack as well. Most say they are smooth and quiet and that is what we care about most. Will post thoughts on them as miles accrue.

I put those on my last vehicle ('11 Toyota Highlander Ltd) in 245/55/19 and really liked them. Reasonably quite and comfortable and handled rain/snow really well for an all-season tire.

Post your thoughts after you've put a few thousand miles on them.

By cross rotating I mean in an "X" pattern. This reverses the direction of the tires and helps remove the slight "cupping" the front tires will get on any FWD vehicle. Still 30000 miles is very minimal, given the care and attention I have given these Michelin's.

The OEM 18" Michelins on the wife's 2011 3.0 probably haven't lasted more than 25,000 miles, as we mount snows for winter.

There's a suspicious wear pattern, so I'm going to have a 4-wheel alignment done when we replace the Michelins.

I recently had the Pirelli Verde All Season plus on my 2011 SRX performance, with a set pf 20" Vogue rims. The tires are great! The ride, the acceleration, wet weather handling, turning, I could go on forever.

Unless you just happen to have money to burn don't go to the dealer for tires. I have been using Tirerack for many years and have never been disappointed. You can go on their site and check the ratings, reviews and price of all the tires that are recommended for your vehicle. They will either ship the tires to you or better yet to any of the tire shops that work with Tirerack. Several months ago I was going to have Tire Kingdom install some tires on my other car. I called them to confirm the installation cost and told them if they would match the price of Tirerack, I would also buy the tires from them. They matched the Tirerack price so I saved the shipping cost.

Where are you located? I like the reviews on those tires but living in Michigan snow performance is an area of concern as well.

I live in the DC/Maryland. Snow isn't that bad and I waited until spring to put the tires on. They are great in the rain, I don't know about snow yet.

Well the dealer can not get anything until the end of the week but can get the Michelin this afternoon, so we are just replacing the flat tire and will deal with the other 3 later. Might keep the new Michelin tire as a spare at home when the other 3 wear out. Oh and their price is the same as Tire Rack once shipping is added in plus they can get it today instead of tomorrow. We might be trading the SRX in soon anyway, so this is better for the short term.

What the heck? I got a puncture the same day as you, and I had mine replaced because it's too close to the sidewall. However, the dealer was kind enough to dent and scratch up my wheel in the process and I'm waiting to hear back from them.

Just bought a complete set of Yokohama YK580 in 235/55/20 for my wife's SRX. There was a screw in the tire causing a slow leak on the inside sidewall. She has 18K miles on the Michelins and they are all at 6/32--since the lease is up in August 2016, I figured I would buy a whole new set. The Yokohama's had good reviews from what I could find and I paid $740 SHIPPED for the set from Discount Tire--plus their is a $60 mail-in rebate on top of that, brings them down to $680. Figure another $200-250 in mounting/balancing/alignment and I got everything for under $1K.

I need to know how people are getting 30K miles out of stock tires--her tires are rotated every 6,000 miles and properly inflated. Maybe it's me--but if you get below a certain tread wear limit in Upstate, NY--the tires suck in the winter time. Maybe in the warmer climates people can ride on them longer?

It's been an expensive week in tires--$322 for a Pirelli P Zero Nero for my CTS due to a pothole blowout as well.

i had a 2013 GMC terrain with 17 in firestone destinations and they rode beautiful...i have a 2015 performance srx with 20 in. michelin latitudes which ride on the hard side..more so under 45 degrees f....the dealer once gave me a luxury srx loaner with 18 in. latitudes which rode nice and soft without noticing a difference in handling. i think the main problem is the 20 in rims, and not the tire so much
