We bought an 11 Flex awd a couple of weeks ago, very happy so far. Rear tires are a bit low on tread and I was looking to replace the factory goodyears. They are way to expensive to replace in my opinion, I am in western canada and we pay a lot more for tires than in the US. $250 per tire plus install and taxes for P235/60R18 tires at the goodyear store.
Anybody have any stories about tires they have put on their Flex. It will never go off road but we can get a lot of snow.

Mine came with Hankrap (hankook) tires and after 3 days i had the dealer reluctantly change them because they ran loud and rough...i now have 25000 miles on BF Goodrich Advantage T/A touring and they still look new...

I got 55,000 miles out of the original Eagle RSA tires and they were great on the vehicle, so I replaced them with the same tires.

The Eagle RSA tires starting in 2010 have been great, prior to that, not so good.  My new 2013 Flex has Hankook, and I am skeptical on their traction in snow, and while they ride well, and handling is OK, I would much rather have a set of the Goodyear RSA tires.

I have never experienced Hankook tires, so I cannot comment about them.  Michelin has always performed great for me and they are available at Sam's club.  Yokohama are another brand that just with great traction in the snow.

I will let you know about the Hankooks in about a year, I was a bit depressed not to see Goodyear RSA tires on the new Flex, but Hankook instead.

I have the stock 255/45/20 Goodyear RSAs on mine and I like them. Will stick with them for summer tires, but will go with a set of Blizzak studless tires for winter driving.

One of mine 2013 hankrap tires has a small leak. I submerge in to a tank with water and can't find it. Looking to get new tires but next size wider for more traction
