Yeah, but that's probably because the MXV4s are crap tires, IMO.TomT wrote:Alas, when I went to the Michelins, there was no real improvement in steering feel. Turn in, handling, ride and braking yes, but the on-center and steering feel was just as numb and uncommunicative as with the OEM Crap-o-matics.
Had some on my last car (Subaru WRX) and they sucked - same size as the LEAF. Way too much tread-depth, but that's how they get a 620 something treadwear rating. Had stock Bridgestock RE92s before that which were better, but not by much.
Best tires I had on the Subaru were RE070s. Way too noisy, harsh ride and reduced fuel economy, though.
Any summer tire should be a good improvement over all-seasons if you're looking for improved steering feel and never drive in the snow.
The Pirelli Cinturato P7 that TRONZ mentioned look like a good choice, the GoodYear EfficientGrip and Michelin Primacy HP also look interesting in LRR tires. Lots of non-LRR summer tires available in stock size to try, too.
