Normally I don't post a "review" of an item unless I truly stand behind it (even though I'm an automotive journalist/ Youtuber in my spare time, so I review just about everything).

I've put a lot of tire brands on my vehicles over the years. While the performance side of me says a nice performance brand like Pirelli, Nitto, Yokohama, Toyo or Falken seems appropriate, the Michelin Cross Climate 2 tires that were installed on my 2014 Accord Sedan right before I bought it are AMAZING!

After dealing with cold, slippery and very rainy conditions here in Houston as of recent, these tires are beautiful in the rain. Plenty of grip and road feel, even at freeway speeds. On dry tarmac/ concrete, they don't produce much road noise and do have a bit of a medium firmness on the road. Not too sure on their longevity but I will definitely be posting more as I go along.

What tires do you all prefer on your cars? Which is the best brand tire you would recommend to anyone?

@Miker, to answer your question on MPGs, since the tires were already on the car when I bought it, I didn't really get a chance to see how my CR2 behaved beforehand. Right now I average around 27-28 in the city and well into the 30's on the highway/ averaging about 470 - 515 miles on a tank (more than the original estimates of 24 city/ 34 hwy). I've never needed winter tires for any reason (living in South Texas has it's benefits to that of course), but I'd recommend these for anyone needing a solid all-season performer.

@WiiMaster I would definitely give the CC2s a shot, even on a minivan. I'm not a brand snob or loyal to one particular company, but after giving these a try, I'd say no matter where you live, they're definitely worth the money so far!
