Prius tires

with 2 comments

Time to replace the Prius tires. The Wife did some Googling and found useful info for your Prius owners: here, here, and here.

Based on that information, we’re going with the Michelin HydroEdge:

Original tire (Goodyear Integrity): 855 Revs per mile, 460 Treadwear,  50,000 Mile Warranty

Michelin HydroEdge: 856 Revs per mile, 800 Treadwear, 90,000 Mile Warranty

The Michelin has better handling and a longer lifespan, and the revs per mile are almost identical to the original tire so the odometer and speedometer won’t be affected.

  1. Thank you so much for the links.

    The Toyota dealer wanted $79 for Oil change + Tire rotation or 15K service.
    So, I did the 15K without the Tire Rotation for $29 with the dealer.

    So, I went to a local shop for tire rotation before the big trip on 4th July.
    The guy said that my front tires are BALD with 20,000 miles on them.

    A friend advised me to go to http://www.tirerack.com to check the prices.
    They had “Goodyear Comfor Tred” for $78.
    Went to America’s Tire with the print out and they matched the price!
    The same local shop send me a shuttle and mounted them right away as a part of Tire Rotation.

  2. Thank you for the useful information! My mother has a 2001 Prius and, being the car person around the house, I’m in charge of finding suitable replacement tires. Thanks again so much, and feel free to check out my site if you have the time.
