Thanks! I will be getting them. I was looking at the Falken All season performance ones as well.I've heard that the vogue signature V's are an exceptional tire wet, dry and performance. A member here bought a car with them already on the vehicle and he says they a very good tire, confirming the rumor.
You still have your old Vogue tires laying around? They could had been a bad set and been replaced under warranty.I had Vogues on my car when I bought it. They were beautiful to look at, but rode harshly and were loud. They had poor traction on the wet (I'm in the rainy Pacific NW, so wet traction is tested all the time). Last year, when we had snow, my car sat in the garage for a week until it was gone off the roads... I had zero confidence in snow/ice traction. I used my wife's SRX that whole time and we shared the car...it was a huge pain (juggling us going in different directions), but a reflection of how poorly my car did with the Vogues on anything less than dry roads. This summer, I replaced my tires, even though I had plenty of tread left on the Vogues. I miss the look (my DTS has the carriage top and the Vogues "completed" the look), but comfort and traction were too important.
I don't know which line of Vogue tires my car had, so I don't know how they'd compare to the "Signature V" series you're considering. I'd recommend checking out thoroughly the tires you're looking at. My $.02.
Hope this helps.
I don't have the old Vogue tires still.You still have your old Vogue tires laying around? They could had been a bad set and been replaced under warranty.
What tires did you get instead?
Wow! ....I am a woman. And my Caddy's name is Precious (08 Black Cherry) and I am more meticulous than my husband. I won't even let him get the snow or ice off of it for me because he might scratch it or something. I keep my wheels clean and I am at the car wash as much as I possibly can! ...can't believe you said that! Lol, I know most women are not like me. I do love the look of the Vogues but there is nothing wrong with the Michelin Energy's I have on her. Maybe my next set.I have the Vogues with the white wall & yellow stripe on my light green DTS. They look great but you do have to keep after the white walls because of disc brake dust. I always go to the car wash, but I have seen some dingy ones.
It was like when the 1st Audi A4 came out and was mainly driven by women. The wheels were always dirty on the ones I saw around town.
Anything is an improvement over the stock Shitelins...MrZoSo said:I'm the guy who hated vogues, got them on the new too me DTS the Z series, and can't brag about them enough. Harsh winter here in NJ and they are better than the Michelins I had on my 07 DTS. I am sold bigtime, and will not hesitate to buy another set. Love them.
FYI They are talking about the V series not the mayo and mustard white walls. Not Sure if they have changed the rubber compounds on those, other member said they had or were going to. If they ever combined the two I think the tyre would be a winner.Kent7100 said:Any advice where to buy them and cost? Can you buy thru Tire Rack? Have always loved the look of their tires!
