New 19 inch Tire Available: TOYO VERSADO CUV

I have the 19 inch wheel option and hate our choices. I just discoved a new toyo introduced this month. I may order it after my bad experience with the Pirellis (only 7K miles out of the pirellis) Here is some info:

Man, I'm with you! I hate the options we have right now. I see this one also has a 50,000 mile warranty on it, so I wonder if we'll see better life expectancy off these. I hate to be the first to buy them, but I'm due for a tire change, and I'm not a big fan on the Conti's.

Please, let me know what you think. I am getting down to the end of the Conti's and need to do something soon. I am really interested to hear how these look/sound/feel. Tread life will show over time, but if they ride well and are as quiet, it's probably worth the risk to try them next round.

Thanks for sharing!

I love them so far. We have put about 500 miles on them in a week and they are very very quiet. They do not whine under cornering like the pirellis or conti's did. Wet traction is very good. -And there is a 50K warranty. What else could you ask for? oh wait, they are the cheapest tire yet!

I noticed you said they were quiet but do they balance out well.
Tried a set of Michilin's could not get them to balance, vibration at certain speeds. Not wild about Contis either but they don't have any vibration.

I ordered mine yesterday. They're hard to find, but I found them at tiresdirect.net. They only had 8 left. Hopefully I'll have them installed Thursday.

I actually got 30K miles out of the first set of Conti's, and 25K out of the second. I guess that wasn't too bad, but I hated the ride and they were terrible in the snow. Hopefully the Toyo's are better.
