How is their wet traction? I need something that is VERY good in wet weather and smooth and quiet.

Thanks for the info, but I'll stick with Michelin's as I don't want to run some cheaper rubber on my ride.

Both those places prices were about $50 to $60 more then what I get here. For tirerack, if I just too into account the tire prices alone, the difference between Green and Ross vs. Tirerack is about $12 a tire.

It is not higher or lower end. Hydroedge are more for wet traction but have a hard, noisy ride. Harmony are good all around passenger car tires.ElvaSoShexai wrote: ↑Apr 14th, 2008 6:53 pmcurious... are harmonys the low end michelins? are the hydroedges higher or lower than harmonys?

If the X Radial and the Harmony were both the same price, which tire would you go with and Why?mtl4 wrote: ↑Apr 14th, 2008 7:46 pmThe Harmonys are good but those X Radials will give you a very good ride as well. If they look and ride similar it's because they are. Michelin, like any other manufacturer rebrands tires that they sell to the Club Stores (Sam's, Costco, etc). The tire casing is exactly the same and all they will do is change the tread slightly and rebrand it to make it tougher to compare. If you can get a good deal on the X Radials, then get those instead.

I'd usually go with the branded tire at the same price, but they won't be priced the same and the X Radials will always be cheaper. Sometimes manufacturers will cheat and not give you full tread depth (for example you might get 11/32" on the Harmony vs 10/32" on the X Radial) so you need to be very careful to compare the details on them both. Then you need to figure out how much is 1/32" of tread depth worth to you.....esp with respect to any road hazzard policies you might be getting.
