Since you compared them to Michelins it would be interesting to see how they feel and sound after the first 30-40K miles. New Michelins are great but as the softer outer compound wears and you enter the second stage of tire life between 30-40k they are hella noisy.

 

You have great taste in rims. I love that rim.

 

The Yokos were better in that regard.  Even when worn, they were pretty smooth.

 

As for my taste in rims, I tend to pay close attention to how well a wheel goes with the lines of the car.

However, since the tires are V-rated, I don't have to worry about heat buildup since I deal with temps from 100-120+ degrees this time of year.

I don't think I've ever had a set of tires last more than 35K.

Looks like I may have to take a trip to Discount today.  The (not-so-good) vibrations have returned.

We appreciate you updating the thread.  Wish there was a dislike button because as helpful as your opinion is. It's something that no one wants to hear since your tires are about a month old. I.E I like the invaluable info you're sharing. I dislike the that you're dealing with this.

Oh joy!  There must be a bent or cracked rim that nobody's noticed yet.  Or maybe a worn control arm bushing or tie rod end?

Today, the vibrations were drastically lessened.  I would not be surprised if those bushings were worn out.  Too bad they don't have polyurethane bushings for the Edge.

They have actually smoothed out and have better bite in the corners.
