I can't find a discussion that applies to my question...

The Hankook (19") OEMs have been excellent for my N. Texas driving. We get virtually no winter-driving weather here, so my ONLY consideration is QUIET SMOOTH RIDE. Again the Hankooks have been great, but the dealer is really pushing Michelins - which do cost alot more. I'm not averse to the investment as long as it's worth it.

I know there are many brands of tires and I have no reliable way of comparing them.

I have AWD and am really easy on a car.

I appreciate all info and experienced suggestions you can offer.

I don't think you're going to find a better value then the OE Hankooks.

Surprisingly enough, the Goodyear RS-A's that came on mine, the new design, not the old one, I have those crappers on my Fusion, have very good traction and are pretty quiet. I was HIGHLY skeptical how they would perform in rain and snow when I got the car, but after this winter, I know what tires I will be putting on my Fusion, the new RS-A's, the price is the best I found anywhere from my dealer for any tire I looked at. I have not slipped, slid, or anything in all kinds of wet and snow, and in Texas when you do get that rare event, you can show how its done with them. LOL

I decided on the OEM Hankooks again. They are fantastic in every way!

The Yokahoma Parada SpecX are nice tires. The only problem is their a directional tire so if you have an alignment issue you need to get it fixed right away. You will where those two tires out quick. Pro's quiet and great grip in wet conditions but not in snow. I've had 2 sets second set got destroyed by bad alignment.
Went back to Goodyear RSA's for now. Which the new ones I like so far.

How many miles are you getting out of each set?
