3 season OEM size non runflat replacement?

Is the hancook Ventus the only 3 season replacement that isn't a runflat?

Re: 3 season OEM size non runflat replacement?

What's considered a 3-season vs. an All-season?

I know the tires that people are replacing the stocker with are:

Toyo Proxes ST II

4 season tires and 3 season tires differ by the softness and grip of the tire. A summer tire has a soft compound that remains soft in the heat above 40 degrees, but loses that softness and grip once below that temp. These tires perform much better than an all season during the spring, summer and fall months.

Since I have a dedicated winter tire, I would prefer to switch out to something comparable to the Pirelli P Zero's that came on my Jeep.

I've read a bunch about the yokahama and it appears that people complain of the noise of the tire after a few thousand miles. Some compare it to a worn out tire bearing!

I had the Toyo Proxies 2 on my 2010 SRT and they were hunks of garbage. Vredesteins were my favorite tire, but looks like they stopped making them for our cars.
Don't know much about General Grabber's and don't see any feedback anywhere on them.

Price isn't the issue, but performance and noise certainly are.

Re: 3 season OEM size non runflat replacement?

I have the Hankook Ventus's on mine. LOVE them compared to the stock run-flats - way smoother, quieter. They flex more than the stock tires - so handling might be a little softer, but overall i like them a lot better.

Also - I think the Ventus's are actually an ALL-season. You will see them listed as a 3-season on some sites, and All-season on other sites. This has been covered in another thread at some point before. Confusing to say the least.

All in all - I got 4 of these for just about the same $ as 1 of the stock Pirelli's - yes - the Pirelli's are probably a better performance tire, but for 4 times the cost. Just wasn't worth that to me.

I have ~6k on mine so far and no noticeable increase in road noise.
Also they're best in category on TireRack.

I'm glad to hear you are happy with them. I thought I read it was at the 7,000 mile mark for someone.
It's strange to hear so many people that say that they are loud and so many people say they are quiet.

Wonder if the 2015 noise cancelling is the root of this.
