Hello,
This thread is the place where people can go and post their opinions and reviews of various tires for the XSE 19" wheels.
I decided to do this when I realized how low the tolerances for thins are with such low profile tires are.
Obviously, different people have different opinions when it comes to their wants and needs in tires so opinions will vary.
Either, way it seems to make sense to talk tires here. :)

So with that said, who here has gotten new tires? Did you get OE tires? Did you try new ones?
Looking for feedback.

I too, am looking for some decent all season tires. A tire that has great wet traction, handles light snow well, strong sidewalls, and low road noise.

Michelin for life. I have the X Ice Xi3 for winter on steel 16's, and once my stock tires bald away ;) I will get Michelin summer specifics. For all season, the Michelin LTX MS/2 are dreamy. They've the best tires going.

I have not, but most seem to be on the same page as me regarding Michelin's greatness. 4.6 stars out of 820 reviews. Give them a go.
Reviews are one thing, countless people say Michelin lasts longer, rides better, great gas mileage, and so on. Owning a couple pairs is another.
If you look at the attention to detail in their work, it speaks for itself. The technology and longevity poured into my X Ice Xi3's are amazing. Extremely confidence boosting. On my old Tacoma, I couldn't wait to get those ass-wipe Dunlops off there. When I put on a set of LTX Ms/2's it was night and day. And no; I don't work for Michelin; I just like giving credit where credit is due, since so many companies out there are more on the fly-by-night train.

Awesome. :)

Bridgestones and Michelins are the highest top selling tires. But the edge goes to Bridgestone. But that only goes to the selling point of view. But as for performance/quality it's still unsure. Can only ask of those that have used them before. :smile:

Has anyone had to replace the bridgestones that came on the XSE v6? I rotated them today, have 16k on the car and was surprised to see how quickly they are wearing; I check the pressure regularly and rotate every 5k.

I have the XSE V6 also stock Bridgestones TURANZA EL400 all 5000 rotation, they wear great even, Here in California, I have 41122.00 on them and I drive it like I stole it, but looking at getting PILOT SPORT 4S - they told me maybe get 20,000 mile out of them (crazy right) still looking at 260 to 300 bucks a tire tough call, good in put would be nice

That Michelin is a serious tire. If in Cali you ever drive up a mountain road in winter you might get into some cold temps. This tire would be dangerous. That's why they call them summer tires Other than that it is probably overkill for the road on a front drive vehicle. I would get a good all season which would also give you decent wear. Check the wear ratings. The Turanza is 400 I believe. Let us know

Do you have experience with the Primacy MXM4?

I have used the MXM4 (or maybe the MXV4? Pretty much same tire, but 1 is higher speed rated.)
I loved them. Usually the bridgestones wear out quicker, but I have always driven at least 60,000 miles on the MIchelin's, and they were still fine.

Nice! How were they on wet roads? Have you tried them in light snow? At what tread depth you replaced them? Thanks

I also had the Bridgestones TURANZA EL400's and liked the quietness, but not the grip on the road so I changed them out with Goodyear Assurance MaxLife. Same quietness with more grip and I feel like I can go faster on corners.

Discount tire had a good July 4th deal with 15% back in rebates so I decided to get them. Been great (1k) since then.

I, myself am not a fan of Goodyear brand. They tend to become loud fast. How are the sidewalls, soft or hard?

Been looking at getting the Quiet Tracks myself once my tires wear out in a couple of weeks. From the few reviews I've seen on them they look very promising. Really want something that smooths out the ride cause currently the road noise and bumpiness on my current tires is obnoxious.

I am currently running the QuietTracks on my 2018 XSE V6. I have close to 10K miles on them so far and close to 40K miles on the Camry overall.

I swapped out the OEM tires a little early because I was planning an almost 10K cross-country trip that was going to take me back and forth through tornado alley in the Spring. I was glad I did!

The QuietTracks, compared to the OEM 440s are:

1) Quieter (so you can hear the driver's side wind noise better.) ; )
2) Slighty smoother ride.
3) Seem to handle about the same.
4) Seemed to get the same MPG (33 highway)
5) Did great in the crazy storms we ran into.

6). The negative, is a more vague tracking feel which is probably due to the softer sidewalls.

This is a great tire choice for cross-country, interstate highway driving but you might not prefer it if backroad handling is your primary concern.

I hope that helps...

What do you mean by vague tracking?
Also I thought the sidewalls were more stiff.

I'm looking for ones with reduced vibration.
I keep having this issue off hopping / vibration very easily and need to road force.
I had this issue with my 18 and now my 19. Both had the same tires. I figured I would try QuietTracks
