That is the correct way of spelling Vogue Tyres...

My quick ...

I have loved these on our MB E350 so much that I would consider them for the Sky in a heartbeat:

https://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires...45YR8PSAS3PLXL

Or to be fair...

https://www.discounttire.com/buy-tir...3-plus/p/26062

Since we actually purchased them from DT and used the road hazard once already.

They seem to be wearing well but we've only had them on less than a year. I thought the Conti's were great (and they were improvement over the stock tires) but these are AWESOME. I've only had them slip on me once and that's because I was really TRYING to make them slip. They even did REALLY WELL in 2-3 of fresh snow!

Be a part of the solution!

I too am running the PS AS3+ and really like them. Quiet, grippy, and they seem to wear pretty well, but I don't yet have enough miles on them to say anything definite. My brother has them on his Crossfire and loves them.

The tires are also quiet. I've had Michelin and Pirellis all seasons that were noisey.

The grip in wet condition is excellent. The grip on dry roads are also good. I'm not sure about autocrossing with the all season but will try it in a few weeks.

The best price was from Amazon. Jegs fulfilled the order.
Good to hear some first hand, wow didn't even think of Amazon as an option.

Dave I think Amazon is going to take over the market for everything.

Wall Mart is feeling the pressure. Closing some stores and laying off people, reason being given is Amazon.

I know they started their new delivery service, just to compete with Amazon.

Things are a changing, soone to be delivered by drones and driverless cars. lol

We have ran multiple track days with the Bridgestone RE-71R tires and for a street tire they are fantastic, we have had nothing but good experiences with them and they are very sticky even when we were at a track day and it was in the 30's the tires did well. Definitely not recommended for snow, etc, but they work well in the wet and dry, for a performance street DOT tire, not a lot can beat them right now.

Another tire that works really well for just an all around good tire is the Sumitomo HTR ZIII, it works well in the wet, dry and even light snow. It is not the best tire at anything but good at everything, they are decently cheap and we use them on all of our daily drivers here.

Hope that helps,

Free shipping on the tires from Amazon plus 5% off with the Amazon credit card.
I live in Washington State so sales tax was collected. It was still the lowest price.
Also at the local dealers including Discount Tire, the tires they stocked were 5 to 8 months older than the ones from Amazon/Jeggs. Which were 1 1/2 month old.

I checked their pricing, not that good. Costco still looked to be the best, will probably try and get DT to match. But looks like I need to check into the Pilot A/S also

I just put a set of Barum Bravuris 3HMs on mine and have put a couple of hundred miles on them. Discount Tire carries them all the time and they are priced right. They are a Continental subsidiary common in Europe with good reviews. So far they seem to be a good tire.

to put an end to this ridiculous thread...as u notice, everyone has a different opinion, everyone will experience a different driving experience...all geographies are different. Just buy a tire and live with it.

ITS ALL SUBJECTIVE

Good day everyone,

We are still covered in snow here, can't wait to get the Sky out. For the tires have you looked at the Coopers and Sailun. I have Coopers on two of my everyday car here and wife and i love them. And on the Sky got Sailun. i was quite surprised by their performance and the reviews from the press are pretty good and also there is quite a price difference.

I was looking at Brigestomes or Bf Gooderidge or Cooper and they were nearing 200$ a piece, while th Sailun were 135$.
