Author Topic:   Michelin X-One or Yokohama Avid Touring?

I have a 97 Plymouth Voyager minivan, tire size 205/75R14, with optional plus size of 215/70R14.

I am looking for a quite smooth ride, with good traction in wet and dry conditions along with good snow and ice traction.

I am looking at the Michelin X-One or the Yokohama Avid Touring tires. How do these tires perform in snow and icy conditions? How do they perform in general? How do they compare to each other?

I believe the price difference is about $13 a tire.

One final question is are the Costco version of the X-One identical to the true X-one or is it like the Sears version where they use the same materials but have different tread designs?

Any reconmendations or opinions would be great.

I had a set of Avid Touring tires on a 1993 Geo Prism and was not happy with them. They rode nice but were real mushy handling. If you like Yokos, would recommend the Avid T4. Overall though, the Michelin X-One is a better tire.

After talking to a couple dealers they also reconmended the X-ONE, only because they offered better snow traction, and a longer tread life.

Had X-ones and was very satisfied with them. Quiet, smooth,and good in the rain. These tires also seemed to last forever.
