Just saw DTD Presidents Sale and wife's 2016 Kia Sedona van needs tires. 235 65 R 17 size. Three I have sorta narrowed down to are Yokohoma Avid Ascend, Altimax RT43 and the Cooper CS5 Touring. All are close in price and have 2 rebates when you use their card. Any input or experience with any of these on a van appreciated. Cold weather performance not really a consideration where I live.

Mainly quite riding and good mileage.

This won't help much but I always tell people looking at the CS5 that the CS4 tires I had were GREAT.
I'd comparison shop too but the Cooper CS5 Touring would get the nod in the absence of clearly superior data from some other tire.

I could feel the same way about a GREAT set of Bridgestone G-009's I had but that feeling is tempered by there being no progressive replacement for the G-009 and having been disappointed with another set of Bridgestones I had.

It ain't easy this tire shopping.

Altimax is a really good tire. Very quiet, good traction, decent in snow. Long warranty too IIRC.

The Yokohama looks like it should provide the quietest ride of the three. Most all sizes of the Yokohama are made in the USA to boot.

Canít go wrong w any of your choices. I would choose the Cooper as I prefer the brand over Yokohama

Any of the three will be good, so just choose the one with the best price/rebates smile

The Nitto NT421Q is also worth considering
