I love my exl but it rides rather hard. Will the michelins make a softer. RideReport it
I've got an early 2013 EX model with the Michelins, and the ride is very smooth. It's been my experience in the past that Michelins ride way, way better than Goodyears. On a side note, I found out from a tire guy at Discount Tire that that there are now 2 different versions of the same tire, non-OME and OME versions (I.E.- there is an OME and a non-OME MVX4 tire for each size) The difference is that the OME has less tread depth that the non-OME. Apparently this is a gimick that car manufactures use to lower the cost that the factory pays for the OME tires. The Guy at Discount Tire said the non-OME tires typically have 2mm more tread depth than the OME tires, so careful what you ask for when you replace tires nowadays!Report it
I would think so. I deliberately drove the Sport during my test drive over a section of bumpy, pot holed road, and even with the 45 series tires, it absorbed the bumps very well, yet maintained excellent road contact. I'm not sure what tires you have on the EX-LReport it
