Brabs_Weather Just had Motivo 235/40ZR18 95W install last night and there are actually a very quite tire. That is actually the only thing that seems different from the PS3. The measured cabin noise is 59db coasting at 60mph and it was 60-61db with the PS3. I have them at 35psi but it was 41F this morning. Anyway these are 60k Ultra High Performance A/S tires.

UnleashedBeast I see even wear @ 39 PSI, but do agree the ride is a tad harsh.

That's why I plan to change over to Continental ExtremeContact DW next time. I love those tires.

The Michelin site is wrong. Follow the Ford number.

billand the PS3's only have a rating on 20,000 miles so 18 k isnt to bad. I think the tire is awsome but its a bit load on our bumpy colorado roads

Kabigon What is your experience with the PS3s and your new tires as far as noise is concerned?

Brabs_Weather Just got a good deal at the time. Still have some mileage on them almost at the wear line.

Replacing Michellin PS3 tires

18k in and replacing the PS3 with Nitto Motivo 235/40ZR18. I have read nothing but good things about these tires. Will see next week, plus going on long trip to Tampa/StPete mid-month.
