Re: 17 Replacement tires for the Volvo XC90 (myxc90)

I replaced the OEM Michelin Synchrones after about 38k with the Yokohama Geolanders.<br>I ordered them from TireRack and had the Volvo dealership mount and balance them. They only charged me 40 bucks (was in for other services).<p>The tires have been great thus far. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

Happy with the OEM Synchrones and replaced them with more of the same from Costco. The original set lasted around 34,000 mi.

I replaced mine Pirellis at 24,000miles with Yokohama Geolander and now after 4,000 miles I am happy with them. It's really quiet tire.

I replaced the OEM Michelin Synchrones after only 22K, nearly completely worn. Goodyear Fortera Triple Tread was highly recommended and rated well on Tire Rack. So far, they are excellent on dry and wet roads, and should perform well in the snow.<br>
