Ok Folks,

It's time to replace the all seasons on the Dodge Journey. As I have winter tires these would really be 3 season tires.

I'm looking for a good quality ride and durability.

What are your suggestions?

The rt43 is a great recommendation. Very comfortable and smooth. We have them on the matrix. They are also very competent in the snow in case you get blindsided by a storm and don't have your winters on the car yet.

++10 Probably the best value tire out there with excellent performance. I hope General doesn't take note and raise the prices.

Have a look at the Michelin LTX Premiers. Quiet, great feel on the road. Have had them for about 20,000K on my 2016 KIA Sorento.

I have been a big fan of Michelin in the past but this model of tire you specified got mixed reviews online and my last set of Michelin's on the Santa Fe didn't last and the sidewalls cracked and they were 70,000 mile warranty. I ended up replacing them at 40,000 miles frown

Just out of curiosity Steve how many years did you have those on your Santa Fe?

They were just shy of 3 years old and the sidewalls cracked and then just about year 4 is when the treads got really low so I scrapped them out of safety.

We should just go ahead and make a sticky saying the General RT43 is the number 1 recommended tire on BITOG and that Michelins crack. All these "what tire" threads are alike.
