possCRVpurchaserI am considering buying a 2004 Honda CR-V in next few weeks. I've heard bad stories about the Bridgestone H/T Dueler orig. equip. I can get other tires probably by paying more. I drive mostly on the road but some off road in red rock county. Also I drive on snow and ice, but have in the past purchased separate snow tires and wheels.

One recommendation I read was BF Goodrich T/A Traction. Also Micheline Harmony. For snow, someone recommended the Artic Alpin. Any thoughts?

Finally, the original equipment tires are P205/70 R15, but I notice one person replaced them with larger P215/70 R15. What kind of difference will the larger size make?

AngelaHow is stating that you drive in red rock county relevant to this question? What makes you think that this is information we need to know? I think its rather arrogant of you to mention red rock county like this is some place we should all know about just because you live there. Most of us have never even heard of red rock county nor do we care of its existence. We are here to talk about tires and nothing else.
artsycsnice email....talk about wasting time. instead flaming him about what area he drives off road, how about talking tires for the crv.

i'm looking for crv tires myself and have it narrowed to the bfgoodrich radial 21565r15 or the touring radial 21565r15. I've always put the bf tires on my jeeps and never had a problem with them. in fact i always seem to recall dealing with tire problems until i get the bfs and there is just nothing left to do with them.

let me know what you ended up with.

NormanI totally agree with you angela! Why in the world would you mention red rock county? Its enough to say that you drive off road, but why does he think that mentioning the county will help others give better advice lol! Hmmm... red rock county? I would have to suggest a set of dunlops! lol
mactelesisYou really can't go wrong with the BF Goodrich's. Although I think they are rather a noisy tire.

And I would always recommend the slightly larger tires simply to "put more tire to the road/snow" and get better wear.

llbmbaI just changed out the OEM Bridgestones on my 2003 CR-V. I got about 48,000 km (29,000 miles) on the set before hitting the wear bars. I probably could have gone another 2,000 with them, but replacements were on sale.

The OEMs were terrible on ice and snow - I only held off replacing them for so long because I was too cheap and because there wasn't much snow on the roads this year.

Just put on a new set of Nokian WR All Season(205/70R15). First thing I noticed...it was quiet! That and the ride was way smoother...

I definately recommend the Nokian.

---I bought a 2003 CRV new, and only got about 28,000 miles on the OEM Duelers. Changed over to Turanza LS-T's because of owner surveys done at a tire web-site. The
Turanzas gave a much quieter ride and 40,000
miles of good life. They're NOT DESIGNED for
off-road; these are strictly highway/touring. But I was pleased enough to buy a second set when the first set wore out. Use the web to track them down and save big over tire dealers prices.

Victor SwankersAngela, you are the kind of woman I would like to marry. You ripped the guy pretty well just for mentioning red rock country, and I can only imagine how well you'd defend me against women who tried to test the strength of my will. You would make such a pillar of strength! Plus, you like to talk about tires.
billy boeAngela's comment is from well over a year ago, she probably is long gone and doesn't even remember her comment, but its still funny and makes a pretty good point at the same time.
Victor SwankersYou're probably right, Billy. But her tire tracks are still fresh in my mind, and I just can't forget her.

Surely you have been smitted before.

sodapopLiving in southern utah and driving from desert to mountain passes with snow in the same day can test a tire's ability to adapt. It's easy to see why someone unfamiliar with the area might not understand that.

I have a 2005 CRV with 16,000 miles. I replaced the tires a week after I bought it. I bought BF Goodrich. They work fine on both surfaces with a little more noise on pavement from the stock tires. If you find yourself in deep sand deflate to 15 psi and turn off the vehicle stability assist. Re-inflate as soon as possible for road use.

I prefer turning off the vehicle stability assist when ice is present.
