Hey everyone! Stumbled across this forum this morning while researching replacement tires for the OEM Falkens on our 2020 Abyss Blue Ascent Touring. I also have a 2022 Magnetite Gray Ascent Touring on order, which should be here in the next month. I appreciate all the advice I've read so far, and I know I'll be here frequently, having two of them!

Welcome! Regarding tires, I and some other owners have had good things to say about Michelin Cross Climate 2s. I have a 2022 Onyx and I switched from 20s to 18s as I prefer a taller sidewall both for ride, and the ability to air down when required offroad.

Thanks, Packard! I saw some great reviews on them, but I found a really good price on the Goodyear Assurance WeatherReadys at Sam's Club. 975 out the door, including mounting, lifetime balance, lifetime rotations, and their road hazard coverage. Then there's the $75 prepaid card offer too, so right around $900. Cheapest I could find the Michelins was closer to 280 per tire before everything else. Was between those two and the Continental CrossContact LX25s.

When I bought the CC2s, there was a Michelin promo at Discount Tire (a supporting vendor here). They ran $980 OTD, with lifetime rotation, balance, repair, etc, etc. I've heard good things about the WeatherReadys also. Almost anything is an upgrade from the crap Falken OEMs!

Enjoy!

I replaced the OEM tires with conti cross contact lx25. I was between the Goodyear assurance weather ready and conti also. I didn’t consider the Michelin Cc.

Have you checked the dealerships? I know it sounds crazy but looking at putting on some Wildpeaks and they were 40 dollars cheaper per tire than everyone else.
I have actually. I was there two weekends ago for the 24,000 mile service and had them look a few tires up for me. I've actually had really good experiences with my dealership's Subaru service department, so they were my first stop. I may see if they'll match the price or drop it any, so I can have them rotate the tires when I have regular maintenance done and save myself a trip to another shop.
