My stock michelin energy saver a/s is nearing the end of it's life at around 52k miles.

I'm thinking of getting ecopia ep422 plus from costco because they are on sale.

Does anyone have experience with them? I'm seeing mixed things. My current tires are good, but they are expensive.

just get the Michelin, I use the same ones. Sure they suck in snow but, I don't really drive in it. Amazing overall tires. Plus they last so long with rotations. First set lasted 73,000 miles before they hit tread limits.

I replaced Michelin Energy Savers with Goodyear Weatherready tires. Goodyear Weatherready is comfier and has better handling and traction, also better hydroplaning but drop in MPG. I don't know about longevity yet.

I got the same Goodyear Weatherready one's. I did not notice any drop in MPG but overall comfort kinda went up for me a bit. I'm yet to tackle any real bad weather with it so i'll hold off judgement till the first day of snow.

I can't wait to test it in snow too but in past months we had a lot of rainy days and they handled it very well.

I like to stick to the original brand that my vehicles comes with and also make sure you rotate your tires every other oil change and they should last you more than 70k miles
