I've got a 2012 Cruze LT RS with 53,000 miles on it. Time for new tires! I've been shopping around online and reading a lot of reviews. I'm looking for some opinions of other Cruze owners that have replaced the tires on their cars. Here is my list of important characteristics in order of importance.
1. Fuel Economy
2. Road Noise
3. Tread Life
I have a light foot and drive more to conserve fuel than I do hot rodding around. Reading online I see that a lot of people like the Michelin Defenders. TireRack.com has them for $406 for a set of 4 including a $70 mail in rebate. That looks pretty attractive to me, but some of the reviews on there said they weren't good on gas mileage. I started out almost ready to buy a set of Goodyear Assurance Fuel Max tires, but the reviews on TireRack said the road noise is off the charts. I can't seem to find a tire that EVERYBODY likes.
For those of you that have replaced the tires on your Cruze, please let me know what you went with and why.
